Surnames: Tucker, Foot, Lagourgue
Yes, I am descended from William Foot's sister, Mary. In one of my books the name is spelled Lagourgne (with an n) but my other reference books have it as Lagourgue. I somehow suspect the spelling with the n is correct, but best to ask a French-speaking person. Duke of Kent Street is in St. George's, Bermuda. St. George's is the oldest town in Bermuda and is sort of a mini Williamsburg type place. It is very interesting to visit. Jehoadan was married to Dennis Lagourgue, who was a sugar plantation owner in San Domingo (Haiti). He had a brother, Pierre. Dennis and Jehoadan had three or four children. The family removed to Charleston as they were worried about the situation in San Domingo, but later returned, where they were caught up in the rebellion. The author of one of my books says, "I have come across an old paper in the Registry Office (Bermuda) which proves that Jehoadan did not die in San Domingo but escaped with two of her children and being reduced to penury, was granted a small annuity by the Bermuda Government."
I have two St. George's marriages:
Elizabeth Matilda Lagourgue to Evan Holliday,12 April, 1813;
Helen Lagourgue to Capt. Henry Crause (2nd Garrison Battalion) on 2 May, 1815. Also a St. George's Baptism for Helen Jehoadan Lagourge, on Aug 8, 1819; father, William, (of Jamaica, gentleman), mother Rebecca Ann. Also a burial for Faith Lagourgue, age 65, Feb 26, 1861, on St. David's Island, Bermuda. Are they your family? Norah McDaniel
