In Reply to: Re: JERKINS AKA COURTOY AKA JACQUINET by Jack Butler of 378

hi Jack,

John Courtoy, known as BUT REALLY Nicolas Jacquinet, died in London 1826, intestate - the first to go without leaving a trail for me to follow. Unconfirmed info from IGI site has a birth for a Nicolas Jacquinet 1743 at Haroue, Meurthe-et-Moselle,France, deep in Courtoy country, not far from the Belgium border.

I know Jean-Francois Courtoy and brother Pierre have a tree for Courtoy in this area, 1500s but neither email addresses are current by the look of it, as no replies received.

Not sure if 'interesting' is how I would describe my chase, - it has been a history lesson far more fascinating that anything I learnt at school. I never would have imagined most of what I have learnt!

Did I tell you about Lieut George Courtoys, who was commander of the brig Lady Nelson, in Australia 1803, who took down the first English settlers to establish a colony at Van Diemens Land? He had a kidney disease, inherited, not consumed, and so did the line of Haynes from South Australia. Not sure G.W. is mine, but oh boy, I know a lot about the Lady Nelson from following the chase.

love to you all, Judy
