    Awaiting pest man here. Heaven knows how I'm supposed to entertain the pooch in this heat outside for an hour and a half. Looks like a drive somewhere.
    Anyhow....St Mary The Virgin East Barnet via wiki:
    "After the Reformation, the church's rector was appointed by the reigning monarch, a practice which continues today'. :)

    So where does 'this person of note' the Rev Samuel Grove fit in your family tree?
    Nice to have a 'person of note' isn't it? Makes a change from the usual ag lab and chamber maid ;)

    London Gazette 26th March 1743
    The King has been pleased to present the Reverend Samuel Grove, Batchelor of Laws, to the Rectory of East Barnet, in the County of Hertford and Diocese of London, void by the Resignation of the Reverend Daniel Beaufort, Clerk
    https://www.
    thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/8209/page/1

    And this from St Mary the Virgin's web site -
    In 1539, King Henry VIII’s dissolution of the Monastery of St Albans meant that he took over the ownership of the Manor of Chipping & East Barnet. His son, King Edward VI then sold on the Manor of East Barnet in 1553 but kept the advowson (patronage) for himself. To this day the sovereign is still our patron.

    As were we Sue, not so nice hornet/wasp in back yard already having taken spite out on son,just where he has veg. gardens to the extent that he was almost unable to see past swellings under eyes. Also stung by others in front yard, just your average yellow with black stripe jobbies. So he sprayed & later from kitchen window I watched the hornet/wasps coming back to their nesty on a kapock tree leaf-probably making plans of restitution.

    Even though her baptism can't be found I am pretty sure from John's will and the monumental inscription he's her father. Samuel is the son of Isaac Le Greux. But, I'm not so sure about John's father being Samuel, but I could be wrong. In his will his Mother's name is given as Mary Grove of Bethnal Green. Gonna stop for now, eyes very sore from trying to read the wills. But will be back on trail again tomorrow, of that I have not doubt:D

    My goodness Sis. This just gets better and better.
    I was just mooching around looking for Martha de Charmes and came across information that may be of interest to you.:nailbiting:
    Simon de Charmes was a Huguenot watchmaker who escaped France. He was the son of Edme de Charme and Anne Perrent. He married Elen Drieu in 1696. They had six known children one of them, Martha.
    He was a distinguished clock and watchmaker and his works are some of the finest available today.
    Lots of images of his beautiful work online.
    Interestingly, I also found a young John Jaque, apprentice watchmaker at Spitalfields on a Huguenot site but have no idea where now.
    Hats off to hubby. He has very interesting ancestors. :rolleyes:

    Haven't looked at the de Charmes Su. That's very interesting, thank you. Wonder of he was a watchmaker for royalty;)
