  • Notes 
    • Benjamin Cottrell, living in Faversham, Kent County, England, married Marguerite Lucas, both deceased in England, as stated in the death certificate for their son Joseph. The name Cottrell is not said to be widely used in Kent County. Indeed, the voters lists of the members of parliament for this county in 1734 (81 voters) as well as similar lists for 1790 (131 voters) and 1802 (170 voters), all lists which included at that time all the owners no mention of Cottrell. On the other hand the name Lucas appears in all these lists: 1734 (John Lucas), 1790 (Andrew Lucas and Richard Lucas), and 1802 (Richard Lucas) (Ref. Notes of Mr. Ian de Minvielle-Devaux).
       Cottrell was perhaps the form of the name taken by the present family in Martinique. From the table of licenses or marriage permits issued by the vicar general of the Archbishop of Canterbury, it emerges the existence of a permit issued in 1773 to a Cottriell / Lucas couple. A photocopy obtained of the library of the archdiocese, in Lambeth - document transmitted by Mr. Ian de Minvielle Devaux - informs us that on October 9, 1773 "Benjamin Cotteriell" requested a license for
      marry "Margaret Lucas", and that on that date the future spouses declare respectively:
      a) that he is single and over the age of 21 (therefore an adult),
      b) that he has lived in the parish of Saint Gregory of London for at least four weeks (signed Cottriell),
      c) that she is also unmarried and over the age of 21,
      d) that she has lived for at least four weeks in the parish of Saint Nicolas in Deptford in Kent county.
       The parish of Saint-Grégoire was in the city of London, near Saint Paul's cathedral. St. Nicholas was one of the two parishes of Deptford; this city was a port on the Thames just below London. Deptford was situated about fifteen leagues from Faversham; while part of Kent County in the 18th century, it is now a district of Greater London. [1]
