British subject born France 1816

Postby felixflyer » Thu Mar 09, 2017 1:32 pm


I have been researching family tree but stuck on a couple of branches. This one relates to my actual surname so I am keen to trace it back.

I have got as far as Charles Freeman who lived in St Austell. The records show he was born in france. Although in Ancestry it is written as Ancetain Wherd I am sure the census really said 'Uncertain Where'. The records just say british subject.

I am at a complete loss as to how to proceed. I searched the French records on Ancestry but there was nothing. I know he and his father were mariners but not sure whether this was the royal navy or merchant.

He married a woman called Mary Ann Peters from St Austell and they went on to live in St Austell but I don't know if that is where his parents came from originally. All I know is his fater is named as Charles Freeman also on his marriage certificate but is deceased at that point.

Any Ideas?
