In 1550 the Temple of Jesus was licensed. It was the  earliest foreign Protestant Church in London. The Church of St. Anthony's Hospital in Threeadneedle Street, London, was given to French Huguenots. The Huguenot Society (then of London, now of Great Britain and Ireland) was founded in 1885 by Directors of the French Hospital to preserve and maintain the records of the Hospital and to promote knowledge about the Huguenots and seek to perpetuate their memory. The Hospital is now at Rochester, Kent

Tevelein Records at the Hospital

.

Below are some extracts obtained by search in the name TEVELEIN from the records of the French Protestant Hospital, London from 1718 to 1957.

There were not many Huguenot families in London during the above period who did not attend this Hospital. While the records are not complete they do provide, on some occasions, quite a lot of detail concerning the individuals including their place of origin. The records are published in book form by the Huguenot Society of London and each volume, there are two, comprises about 500 pages. They have been kindly extracted for us by Roy Day of the HWE-L.

Translation "Isaac aged sixty eight years, a  religious refugee for sixty years has become strong infirm having had several falls. He resides in Canterbery and is recommend by Messrs John Godier,.......elders of the Canterbury Walloon Church."   (Unless you know better !)

Comments:

1.  The Isaac [2] who died 1764 is the brother of Jacob [4], the apprentice weaver who was in London in 1711 and the brother of Jeanne whose mother was Elizabeth DOSSELART.

2. In 1746 Isaac[2] was aged 63 and had been a refugee for 60/61 years.

Arthur Cook's Comments

I think the Jeanne mentioned is the sister of Isaac who married P. L'Evesque and was born 20 May 1698.  Their daughter Henriete was born in London.  Age of 68 in 1766 is therefore correct.
