Was so interested to receive your site from a gent on line while I was looking for Vibert and came across Jean- Pierre Vibert the rosarian. I was looking into our family history when a recent obituary sparked my interest. It was a LeVesconte who would have been I believe a 4th cousin or the like of my father. I stumbled in my history on the maternal names Vibert and LeFeuvre which no one seems to have researched on this end.
I have only a few days ago found a part of my family history linking me to the name Vibert of ?.
My father was Isaac Lorne MacDougall born Feb 12, 1922 in Inverness Cape Breton Nova Scotia to Bertram Camillus LeVesconte MacDougall of Inverness and Helen Jean McKenzie of Canso, Guysborough Co. They lived in Inverness and later moved to the home of John Lorne in Strathlorne.
My grandfathers father was John Lorne MacDougall, Barrister and his mom was Caroline Louisa Alberta LeVesconte of Arichat. They lived in Strathlorne, Inverness County.
Her father Isaac worked with his father's shipping firm DeCarteret and LeVesconte's in between Arichat and Channel Island sites. (photo on internet)
My great-great grandmother's maiden name was Caroline Susan Jean(died 1876), daughter of John Jean and Louisa Moore(Arichat). Isaac LeVesconte my great great grandfather was a member of the Canadian Parliament as financial secretary in the James W Johnton- Charles Tupper administration and he was Spanish Consular agent in Arichat. He was the son of ...
Jeanne Malzard ( her mother was Jeanne Vibert, born Jan 30, 1765, died Feb 18, 1821 and father Isaac Malzard), who married Peter LeVeconte of St. Helier who was the son of Pierre LeVesconte and Jeanne LeFeuvre, b.1762. Peter LeVesconte, 35 Broad St., St. Helier.
I do know that Isaac had a sister Elizabeth Jane b. Oct 27, 1824 died about 1880 whose husband Peter DeCarteret(1786-1875) son of Jean DeCarteret and Rebecca Rauland of New Rochelle France assisted with the Jersey side of the business died in 1875 in Switzerland. She was baptized at St. Brelode. The DeCarteret's lived in Jersey, Arichat, Paris, and Bex Vaud in Switzerland. They had a son Peter John DeCarteret born 1850 married Emma Henrietta Cave (daughter of Baronet Cave of Hartley-Wintney)Surrey England. Baronet Cave was Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Lloyd George Government. They lived in Jersey, Switzerland and later at Hanom Court, Surrey near Bristol. (photo on internet) They had 3 children Elizabeth Lilian, b. June 1873 married. Reported to have died in childbirth. ? child of Elizabeth and Isaac had a sister Livy LeVesconte who married a Rev. A. Roger and lived in Switzerland. They had a son in May of 1859 but there is no further info on the Roger family known to me.r husband name. Another son Harold Richard born April 1875 killed in an accident while on leave from WW1. Then Muriel boron in 1876. ?died young. No other info on this family.
I also have no further info on Peter William the brother B Feb 26, 1817 baptized Mar 2, 1817 at St. Brelode. Isaac (my great great grandfather ) was born Oct 13, 1819 in St. Aubin and Baptized Oct 20th in St. Brelode. He died Oct. 26, 1879 in Arichat. William another brother was born in 1831 St Helier and died July 31, 1915. It was his descendant that sparked my curiosity and in looking at my history I found we shared the same Jeanne Vibert and Peter Levesconte and prior ancestors.
Does any one have further information?
