I have read your 'mail' with great interest. I have been trying to find out about my ancestor, John Le Blanc, born in 'foreign parts'in 1817. His mother, Jane,was born in Boldre, Hampshire and both are recorded in the 1841 census as living in Lymington, Hampshire but Jane is recorded as head of the family. I have recently found out that Jane's husband (John's father) was a Louis Le blanc, a soldier, and also that French POW's were billeted in Lymington.

Your information has given me new leads to follow, for which I thank you. Researching my family, to me, is like a mystery story - my husband dispares about the time I spend 'hunting' on the web, but I find it far more entertaining than watching TV! Poor, sad soul that I am!
