Hello Richard, Greetings from Australia!
I've been able to trace my ancestry back to Jacques Levesque (born before 1647) in Pays de Caux. In 1850, his descendant, James Stanley Levesque was born in Mont a L'Abee - Saint Helier Jersey (Channel Islands) - (my great-grandmother's father). The family then sailed from London on 22/10/1884 to Melbourne- Australia via Tasmania, where some members departed to make a new life for themselves there. The rest carried on to Melbourne, but later left Australia for New Zealand in 1884, and eventually, I was born there (late 1960's). It is most likely that we are related, although I haven't undergone DNA testing. Isn't it interesting to see the family connections...? All the best !
