Birth: In the email of April 17, 2007 from Marjolaine Guisan to Elayne Lockhar t it was noted that "Francoise Marie, nee le 16 aout 1797, fille nature lle de Bastian Vinch de Worms, Allemagne".
Baptism: "Francoise Marie fille illegitime de Marie Richenet Bourgeoise de Vevey , qu'elle a donee dans ses couches a Bastian Finch de Vorms, nee le 16 A out 1797 a ete batizee le 1 Sept. suivant. Parr: Francois Delapraz de l a Paroisse de Corsier. Marr: Marie Du Bois de Menieres". Worms is in Ge rmany.

This entry did not have a family name down the left side of the regist er, only a row of dots over the number 66.

Census: [1816] Geneva, Switzerland

Francoise Marie was then identified on the 1816 census of Geneva as hav ing been living in Geneva for 6 years, and she was listed as a "tailleu se" (tailoress, or seamstress). A letter to Elayne Lockhart from Jacque s Barrelet, Archiviste d'Etat adjoint of the Archives d'Etat, Republiqu e et Canton de Geneve indicates that "nous avons bien recu votre messag e electronique du 14 juin 2007 qui a retenu toute notre attention. La s eule mention que nous ayons retrouvee concernant une Francoise Marie Ri chenet figure dans un recensement de 1816. Il y est note que cete derni ere est nee a yverdon (canton de Vaud) en 1798, protestante, qu'elle ex erce la profession de tailleuse, qu'elle est celibataire et qu'elle est a G eneve depuis six ans (AEG, Recensement D 4, folio 220). En revanche, no u n'avons retrouve aucune demande de passeport etabli a son nom a Genev e'. So - a search of their records located someone whose information ma tched very closely to Francoise Marie Richenet about whom I had inquir ed. There is no reference to the "Francoise" but on this census listing m ost (but not all) entries had only one name. The second anomaly is that t he place of birth is given as Vverdon, canton of Vaud, whereas Marie wa s born in Vevey, Canton of Vaud. If this is indeed the right Marie this c ould indicate that the person giving the information did not know the e xact place of birth, or it could indicate that prior to moving to Genev a Marie was living in Yverdon and the individual providing this informa tion to the census taker may have believed that this was also her place o f birth.

According to the FHL this census was entitled "Recensement des etranger , 1816". Authors: Geneve (Suisse: Canton), Chancellerie (Main Author). T he English title the FHL gave was "census of foreigners (or non-citizen s) of the canton of Geneva. It is in "les Archives cantonales, Geneva". I h ave been told that this census was taken immediately following the end o f the Napoleonic Wars when the Napoleon occupation ended. It was needed t o determine the status of the residents of Geneva. I saw the actual ent ry in person in Geneva at the Archives.

The headings on the film are No. d'ordre, Noms, Prenoms, Etrangers - Li eux de Naissance, Date de la permission de sejour, religion, age, etat o u profession, Marie - celibataire or veuf, Compagnie - nom du capitaine , grad, Domestiques: Males, Femel., Observations. There is only one en try on the page under Compagnie - a name of "Bellamy" (which sounds ver y English), beside the name of a Francis (?) Pellaz, Calviniste, 1758, f aiseur de research (?), marie. The meaning of all this is obscure.

The actual street address name is rue de Coutance in the quartier de St . Gervais. The listing is on Page 220 of the census, and the arrangemen t of names on the page indicated groupings of names, with individual nu mbers, but no actual house or apartment numbers. In this grouping of na mes were the following:

4099 Marmoud, Anne, age: 1784, faiseure d'Aiguilles, veuve Benoit
4100 Benoit, Cecile, age: 1803, faiseure d'Aiguilles, veuve Benoit
4101 Benoit, Antoinette, age 1804, faiseure d'Aiguilles, veuve Benoit
4102 Marmoud, Marie, age 1798, lingere (?), celibataire
4102 Richenet, Marie (etrangers, liex de naissance): Yverdon (Vaud), (D ate de permission de sejour): a Geneve depuis 6 ans, age: 1798, tailleu se, celibataire

All were Calviniste.

My first thoughts: Could we really have 3 widows here? Was Marmoud Anne 's maiden name? Could the Benoit's all have had the same married and ma iden names? Marie Marmoud could theoretically be Anne's daughter but th e mother would only have been about 14 at her birth.

We know that "faiseure" would be "maker of", and aiguille means needle - s o - maker of needles? (To knit is aiguille a tricoter), or more likely d oing something with needles.

Lingere seems to be lingere but an accent, but according to the diction ary, lingere without an accent is laundress.

Tailleuse is best translated as "Seamstress". A dressmaker seems instea d to be couturiere.

However, James went to http://www.gen-gen.ch. This is the Geneva Geneal ogy Society. By searching for Benoit he found a child born in about 180 3 whose mother was an Anne Marmoud, and even though the child's first n ame isn't Cecile, one of her middle names is. (An advanced search can b e done on nom Benoit and nom maternal Marmoud). He guesses that the mot her of the Benoit children (or women) in the 1816 census is a Marmoud, a nd that Marie is thus staying with a family (rather than in a more shad y establishment). I followed up and found the listing of a Jeanne Cecil e Emilie Benoit, 1803, 08.04.1834, tailleuse, husband Marc Gauttier. Th e records also seem to indicate that Anne's husband was Jacques Benoit.

James' point was that he is wondering about the fact that this birth is r ecorded on this site means that a member is researching members of the B enoit/Marmoud family - which might be interesting if I were ever to fin d out that Marie was with them because of kinship, however remote. (Source: Marie Richenet appears on the 1816 census of foreigners (or non-citizen s) of Geneva. This census was taken immediately following the end of th e Napoleonic Wars and end of the occupation of Switzerland, to determin e the status of the citizenry. Maire was listed as a seamstress, age 18 , and had been living in Geneva for the past 6 years (therefore since 1 810). She was with a group of five women, four of them all belonging to t he Marmoud/Benoit family, and all, in some form, involved in a form of n eedlework.

Event: Pass. [16 September 1818] Vevey, Switzerland

On 16 September, 1818 Francoise Marie, fille de Jeanne Marie Richenet, b aptise en cette ville le 1 septembre 1797 accorde reconniassance de la B ourgeoisie de cette ville. She was not listed as "desmoiselle" whereas t wo of the others were - this was more of an honorific. Here she was obt aining the recognizance of the town as soon as she turned 21. This is p resumed to have been in preparation to obtaining a document permitting h er to travel outside the country.

The document is dated 16 September, 1818, en municipalitie ordinaire pr esidence de Monsieur The others listed with her were:
Le Sieur Marc Francois, fils de Vincent Durieu, domicilie a Geneve, bap tise a Vevey le 31 May, 1784.
Demoiselle Marie Antoinette, fue Marc Louis Vincent Eck, batisee en cet te ville le 11 Juillet, 1794,
Demoiselle Louise Elizabeth feu le dit Marc Louis Vincent Eck, batisee a u dis .. le 17 Mars, 1798
Francoise Marie fille de Jeanne Marie Richenet batisee en cette ville, l e 1 September, 1797
Jeanne Lucie Francoise feu Francoise David Coulin, batisee a Vevey le 1 2 Fevrier, 1790.

Note that the names of all of the other fathers were given.

In an email of April 19, 2007, Marjolaine Guisan explained: "pour la re connaissance de bourgeoisie, c'est un procede habituel, mais tres impor tant dans d'un depart. Il est possible qu'il y ait aux Archives cantona les des documents tels que passeport or authorisation de sortie du pays , elements que Francoise Marie a sans doute demandes". A search was don e in person at the archive cantonale in Lausanne but there were no pass port records this early. The above comment, however, makes it very clea r that since this was required in order to leave the country, Marie was a lready making such plans by the time she was 21, in 1818.

It is interesting to speculate as to whether she might have visited he r half sister, Jeanne Louise, in Vevey when she returned. She most lik ely, however, would have visited her grandmother, and that could have b een a very poignant moment. Did the grandmother encourage her to leave, k nowing that her life could only get better? The grandmother died a few y ears later (1825) just before Marie married so if she had stayed behind t hings would have been very different, but perhaps futile.

NOTE: In December, 2006 a trip to Salt Lake City by Elayne Lockhart discovere d the birth and baptism of Francoise Marie (known in all subsequent rec ords as Marie) in Vevey, Switzerland. Her family of origin was then traced back several generations, all in this one same town. Marie's birth w as illegitimate, and no other trace of her father, Bastien Finch of Wor ms (Germany) has been found in any local records. Marie was baptized 1 S eptember, 1797 and her godparents were Francois Delapraz of the parish o f Corsier and her godmother was Marie DuBois, of Mezieres. Her mother w as bourgeoise of the town of Vevey. In the email of April 17, 2007 from Marjolaine Guisan to Elayne Lockhart it was noted that "Francoise Marie, nee le 16 aout 1797, fille naturelle de Bastian Vinch de Worms, Allemagne". "Francoise Marie fille illegitime de Marie Richenet Bourgeoise de Vevey, qu'elle a donee dans ses couches a Bastian Finch de Vorms, nee le 16 Aout 1797 a ete batizee le 1 Sept. suivant. Parr: Francois Delapraz de la Paroisse de Corsier. Marr: Marie Du Bois de Menieres". Worms is in Germany.

Her great granddaughter, Noel Brandon Sumner, has a small psalmster, in F rench, which had belonged to Marie, and there is an inscription in it, d ated 1807, which refers to a Franchette Richenet , presumably her nickn ame. In May, 2007 it was learned that another Bible and some other Psal msters have also remained in the family and are in Dublin. There is an i nscription confirming the dates of her marriage and those of the baptis ms of her sons in one of those books called a Remembrancer, written in M arie's own handwriting.

Contact with the Archivists of the Town of Vevey as well as the cities o f Lausanne and Geneva has provided much interesting information about M arie's life. We learned, for example,that she was brought up by her gr andmother Jeanne Marie (born 1775) but that in 1810 at the age of 13 sh e was living in Geneva. This was the year of her aunt Jeanne Judith Gui llieron's marriage so she presumably was living with her. Jeanne Judith w as already pregnant at the time of her marriage and also had an 8 year o ld daughter so Marie's might have been required to provide assistance.
This would indicate that Marie had been living in Geneva since 1810, wh en she would have been 13. That same year her aunt, Jeanne Judith Gilli eron married Louis Demorey (March 29). However, she already had had an i llegitimate daughter Jeanne Louise in 1802. She and Marie were therefor e only about 5 years apart in age. However, Jeanne Judith may have need ed help with this daughter, which Marie at age 13 could provide, plus J eanne Judith was already pregnant and gave birth to her first child of t he marriage 6 months later (28 September), so again Marie's assistance m ight have been needed. She would have been too young to live on her own i n Geneva, so it seems reasonable to assume that her move to Geneva co-i ncided with that of her aunt, and might reflect some possible ill healt h on the part of her grandmother. It also clearly seems to indicate tha t Marie's mother was not taking care of her, nor was Marie, at the age o f 13, living with her.

According to M. Favez, .the Archivist of ACV in Lausanne, Geneva had a c ensus taken in 1816 because it had belonged to France until 1813 (under N apoleon). .

Mme. Guisan, the archivist of Vevey, provided some background on the is sue of education. At the time of the Republic (French?) there was a str ong desire for equality, and for a need to help everyone. Many children , including poor girls, were put into the care of good families, e.g. p astors, or professors, as regents. Some were exploited and were like sl aves, but some received a good education. She feels that perhaps Marie w as with a minister or someone who provided both education and culture. T he reference in the 1740 document from Berne read "education Chretiene" , and a ministre or professeur could have filled this role of regent.

The Archivist in Vevey also provided the following information, taken f rom the town records, Manual de la Municipalite de Vevey, Ac 7 4, fol. 200): (email of April 17, 2007 - "les informations se font r ares et la derniere concerne Francoise Marie que obtient le 16 Septembe r 1818 (a 21 ans) une reconnaissance de bourgeoisie de la ville Vevey. P as de mention sur un depart eventuel". On September 16, 1818, just aft er her 21st birthday, she was given a document known as the "Reconnaiss ance of the Bourgeoise of the town". She and one other woman were not g iven the honorific of "desmoiselle" whereas two others were. This is th e sort of identification she would have required to be able to obtain d ocuments with which to leave Switzerland. Citizenship was based on your p lace of birth and she had been a bourgeoise of Vevey by virtue of her f amily having also had that position. Unfortunately the records of passp orts in the Archives of Lausanne begins only in 1825 and there is no re cord of her in that year, nor is there any passport record in the Archi ves of either Vevey or Geneva. As she was married in Armagh in 1826 the re is a window between late 1818 and May 1826 in which she would have l eft Switzerland. Did she go directly to Ireland, or perhaps to England f irst? On 16 September, 1818 Francoise Marie, fille de Jeanne Marie Richenet, baptise en cette ville le 1 septembre 1797 accorde reconniassance de la Bourgeoisie de cette ville. She was not listed as "desmoiselle" whereas two of the others were - this was more of an honorific. Here she was obtaining the recognizance of the town as soon as she turned 21. This is presumed to have been in preparation to obtaining a document permitting her to travel outside the country.

The document is dated 16 September, 1818, en municipalitie ordinaire presidence de Monsieur The others listed with her were:
Le Sieur Marc Francois, fils de Vincent Durieu, domicilie a Geneve, baptise a Vevey le 31 May, 1784.
Demoiselle Marie Antoinette, fue Marc Louis Vincent Eck, batisee en cette ville le 11 Juillet, 1794,
Demoiselle Louise Elizabeth feu le dit Marc Louis Vincent Eck, batisee au dis .. le 17 Mars, 1798
Francoise Marie fille de Jeanne Marie Richenet batisee en cette ville, le 1 September, 1797
Jeanne Lucie Francoise feu Francoise David Coulin, batisee a Vevey le 12 Fevrier, 1790.

Note that the names of all of the other fathers were given.

In an email of April 19, 2007, Marjolaine Guisan explained: "pour la reconnaissance de bourgeoisie, c'est un procede habituel, mais tres important dans d'un depart. Il est possible qu'il y ait aux Archives cantonales des documents tels que passeport or authorisation de sortie du pays, elements que Francoise Marie a sans doute demandes". A search was done in person at the archive cantonale in Lausanne but there were no passport records this early. The above comment, however, makes it very clear that since this was required in order to leave the country, Marie was already making such plans by the time she was 21, in 1818.

It is interesting to speculate as to whether she might have visited her half sister, Jeanne Louise, in Vevey when she returned. She most likely, however, would have visited her grandmother, and that could have been a very poignant moment. Did the grandmother encourage her to leave, knowing that her life could only get better? The grandmother died a few years later (1825) just before Marie married so if she had stayed behind things would have been very different, but perhaps futile.

The question is how, and with whom? If she was a young woman with presu mably limited education and from an impoverished background then she wo uld not have had the means to leave on her own. Did she travel with an E nglish or Irish family who had been visiting Switzerland and wanted her s ervices as a seamstress, or governess or French teacher for their child ren? It certainly would have been a strange and new adventure.

The Archivist of the Town of Vevey (email April 23, 2007) has indicated " je suis comme vous etonnee de la capacite qu'a eue Francoise Marie pour s ortir du milieu miserable dans lequel elle a ete elevee" - like you, I a m surprised or shocked by the ability of Francoise Marie to leave the m iserable environment in which she was raised.

Mme. Guisan also felt that probably Marie arrived in Ireland without a p ast. No one would really know or ever find out her family story. She wo uldn't need to lie, would just seem like an orphan (orphaline) or someo ne with a guardian. (She also assumed that Marie's mother, who definite ly seemed to have had "problems", wasn't invited to the wedding in Arma gh:)

Francoise Marie was then identified on the 1816 census of Geneva as having been living in Geneva for 6 years, and she was listed as a "tailleuse" (tailoress, or seamstress). A letter to Elayne Lockhart from Jacques Barrelet, Archiviste d'Etat adjoint of the Archives d'Etat, Republique et Canton de Geneve indicates that "nous avons bien recu votre message electronique du 14 juin 2007 qui a retenu toute notre attention. La seule mention que nous ayons retrouvee concernant une Francoise Marie Richenet figure dans un recensement de 1816. Il y est note que cete derniere est nee a yverdon (canton de Vaud) en 1798, protestante, qu'elle exerce la profession de tailleuse, qu'elle est celibataire et qu'elle est a Geneve depuis six ans (AEG, Recensement D 4, folio 220). En revanche, nou n'avons retrouve aucune demande de passeport etabli a son nom a Geneve'. So - a search of their records located someone whose information matched very closely to Francoise Marie Richenet about whom I had inquired. There is no reference to the "Francoise" but on this census listing most (but not all) entries had only one name. The second anomaly is that the place of birth is given as Vverdon, canton of Vaud, whereas Marie was born in Vevey, Canton of Vaud. If this is indeed the right Marie this could indicate that the person giving the information did not know the exact place of birth, or it could indicate that prior to moving to Geneva Marie was living in Yverdon and the individual providing this information to the census taker may have believed that this was also her place of birth.

According to the FHL this census was entitled "Recensement des etranger, 1816". Authors: Geneve (Suisse: Canton), Chancellerie (Main Author). The English title the FHL gave was "census of foreigners (or non-citizens) of the canton of Geneva. It is in "les Archives cantonales, Geneva". I have been told that this census was taken immediately following the end of the Napoleonic Wars when the Napoleon occupation ended. It was needed to determine the status of the residents of Geneva. I saw the actual entry in person in Geneva at the Archives.

The headings on the film are No. d'ordre, Noms, Prenoms, Etrangers - Lieux de Naissance, Date de la permission de sejour, religion, age, etat ou profession, Marie - celibataire or veuf, Compagnie - nom du capitaine, grad, Domestiques: Males, Femel., Observations. There is only one entry on the page under Compagnie - a name of "Bellamy" (which sounds very English), beside the name of a Francis (?) Pellaz, Calviniste, 1758, faiseur de research (?), marie. The meaning of all this is obscure.

The actual street address name is rue de Coutance in the quartier de St. Gervais. The listing is on Page 220 of the census, and the arrangement of names on the page indicated groupings of names, with individual numbers, but no actual house or apartment numbers. In this grouping of names were the following:

4099 Marmoud, Anne, age: 1784, faiseure d'Aiguilles, veuve Benoit
4100 Benoit, Cecile, age: 1803, faiseure d'Aiguilles, veuve Benoit
4101 Benoit, Antoinette, age 1804, faiseure d'Aiguilles, veuve Benoit
4102 Marmoud, Marie, age 1798, lingere (?), celibataire
4102 Richenet, Marie (etrangers, liex de naissance): Yverdon (Vaud), (Date de permission de sejour): a Geneve depuis 6 ans, age: 1798, tailleuse, celibataire

All were Calviniste.

My first thoughts: Could we really have 3 widows here? Was Marmoud Anne's maiden name? Could the Benoit's all have had the same married and maiden names? Marie Marmoud could theoretically be Anne's daughter but the mother would only have been about 14 at her birth.

We know that "faiseure" would be "maker of", and aiguille means needle - so - maker of needles? (To knit is aiguille a tricoter), or more likely doing something with needles.

Lingere seems to be lingere but an accent, but according to the dictionary, lingere without an accent is laundress.

Tailleuse is best translated as "Seamstress". A dressmaker seems instead to be couturiere.

However, James went to http://www.gen-gen.ch. This is the Geneva Genealogy Society. By searching for Benoit he found a child born in about 1803 whose mother was an Anne Marmoud, and even though the child's first name isn't Cecile, one of her middle names is. (An advanced search can be done on nom Benoit and nom maternal Marmoud). He guesses that the mother of the Benoit children (or women) in the 1816 census is a Marmoud, and that Marie is thus staying with a family (rather than in a more shady establishment). I followed up and found the listing of a Jeanne Cecile Emilie Benoit, 1803, 08.04.1834, tailleuse, husband Marc Gauttier. The records also seem to indicate that Anne's husband was Jacques Benoit.

James' point was that he is wondering about the fact that this birth is recorded on this site means that a member is researching members of the Benoit/Marmoud family - which might be interesting if I were ever to find out that Marie was with them because of kinship, however remote.

Her marriage to Alexander Lockhart was performed by Rev. Cosby Stopford Mangan. The witnesses were William Penton and James Smyth. Both were listed as seedsmen in Pigot's 1824 Directory.

It was listed in the Belfast Newsletter, in a time when there were very few marriage entries. There was only one other that day - for a LadyElizabeth Grey, daughter of Earl Grey.

It read: Lockhart, Alex and Maria Richney.

The book held in 2007 by Alexandra Erskine has the handwritten inscription by either Marie or Alexander that the marriage took place in" the Parish Church", Armagh. In correspondence with Canon John McKegney,St. Mark's COI, Armagh, Jan. 27, 2006 he states that St. Mark's was notthe parish church of Armagh in the late 1820's - that was the Cathedral.St. Mark's was built in 1811 but only became the Parish Church in 1974.However I don't think this is where your great, great grandparents weremarried. We didn't have a Rev. Cosby Stopford Mangan. He may have been inthe Cathedral and as you say it could have been there or in the chapel.The Cathedral is still going strong; sadly theI Chapel though beautifully restored by the city Council is now deconsecrated".

In the family is an old Bible, in English, with the inscription: Marie Richenet Lockhart, a gift from Mifs Griffith,Rockingham, 1838. Rockingham was the residence of Lord Lorton in Boyle, County Roscommon and Miss Griffith was Elizabeth Griffith, sister of Sir Richard Griffith of the Griffith Valuation Fame. The assumption is that her husband, Alexander, had been the gardener to Lord Lorton and the gardener's house still exists and has been viewed and photographed (exterior only) by Elayne.

By 1847 the family (or at least some of them) were living in Belfast and by 1848 Marie was a widow.

Subsequently many references and documents have been made connecting her to the family of Harriet and George Dunbar although the exact nature of the relationship is unknown. Her son Alexander was to become a solicitor after serving as a law clerk to Henry Russell of Crawford and Russell, and this law firm was also the solicitors for George Dunbar. So eventually Marie and her son are again within the circle of familiar names and seem to indicate that Marie Lockhart had a relationship with this Beresford family which spanned a long period of time, and that it was a relationship of her own accord, seemingly independent of her husband.
