Introduction

It is not believed that any of these Frenches immigrated to America. The DNA test puts them in another group. See DNA test results.

French ancestors can be traced back to John French and Elizabeth Bowles who married in Hempstead in 1756 and brought up their family in Finchingfield. Although of Finchingfield at the time of his marriage it appears that John was born in Felsted to William and Elizabeth (Page). It seems that William's brother John married Elizabeth's sister [6].

The Essex Record Office in England recently began posting high resolution images of the early parish registers (more extensive and better quality than the LDS films) on their website. All parish registers before 1700 are now available to view online. The main shortcoming is there is no plan as yet for any date indexes to these images that makes finding particular years and events a little awkward. This might interest French's with origins in Essex. There are also images of wills and other documents.

Manor of Frenches and Frenches at the Fairy in Felsted

The Maner of Frenches, is so called from a family of note that flourished in the reigns of these first Edwards, Kings of England [see R]. The maner-house is situated in Felsted on the great common, and is now called Frenches at the Fairy, near the Windmill, where the court was formerly held in the gravel pit. It centred, like the rest, in the Rich family. For, Robert Lord Rich, son and heir of Richard first Lord Riche, held the maner of Frenches, and divers lands and tenements in Felsted [6].

The manor of Frenches of this place was so called from a family of that surname. It was situated on the great common near the windmill, where the court was formerly held, and was afterward called Frenches at the Fairy. Edward III. (1341 -42). Galfridus le Frensh was among the persons taxed in this vill at the inquisitiones nonarum. Escheat of the forty-third year of the reign of King Edward III., 1369. Johannes Frenssh, chaplain (probably the recorded rector of Little Leighs who died in 1387), and others (held) for the prior and convent of Lega (Leighs) one hundred and twenty-six acres of land in Felsted, which are seized in the king's hands ; but divers lands and tenements in Leghes and Dunmowe remain to the aforesaid Johannes. Morant states that John French, chaplain, and John French, clerk, had license in 1369 and 1373 to give land in this parish to the priory of Lees [6].

Descendants of John French of Finchingfield

The support for the second generation 2's - John, Anthony, Elizabeth, James, Thomas, William, Mary, Martha & Charles - being siblings and the children of John FRENCH & Elizabeth Bowles is weak, and comes from LDS Church member submissions. Even these do not include Joseph in this family. Other uncertainties indicated by question marks.

On my own website I have created a date index for the parish of Felsted at http://www.frenchfamily.info/felstedindex.htm and I am hoping other ERO users will follow suit. I have also listed all the early French events in the parish of Felsted at http://www.frenchfamily.info/FrenchsOnFelstedImages.htm.

These webpages have links to the ERO images. My own Essex French's can be found elsewhere on my own pages. For example at http://www.frenchfamily.info/famtree_cm.htm and http://www.frenchfamily.info/frenchsticks.htm

[2] Kevin White, email: dustycat_007@yahoo.co.uk. The furthest I can get back to was John French b. 1732 in Felsted Essex and his wife Elizabeth Bowles b. 1734 again in Essex. I know that several members of this family left for the USA or were sent to Australia.

[3] Mara French’s trip to Felsted in 1989, data on the Church of the Holy Cross. No vicar of this church was a French. I have many photos to add of the French sites when I find them and when I have time to scan them.

[5] Ellinea – email unknown at present. Sarah French, b. 1808 in Finchingfield, Essex. I am researching my ancestry and I would like to find the 1841 for Sarah to find out who her husband was. I cannot seem to find her in the 1841 census. I have the 1851 which gives me the children and especially Jane French as she is my great great grandmother. According to the 1851 census Sarah's mother was living there and maiden name would be Sparks, but cannot seem to get any further.
