Van Driquelle

Thanks, that I could become a member of the forum.

I'm searching for Anna Maria (Ann Mary) Van Driquelle. She is born in Mechelen (26 November 1825) as Maria Ludovica (Mary Louise) Van Driquelle.

According to the Population Indexes of the city of Antwerp she moved to Liverpool with her niece Maria Rosalia & daughter Theodorine Gemine.

She has no husband.

She arrived in 1850 in the port of London (see picture attached).

Can someone give some info on consultable (online) sources that I could you use to find more information about the family?

It is a certainty that she can't be find under her family name as written here.

A phonetic search is more plausible.

Greetings,

Gert

Hi and welcome.  I'm sure some of us will be trying out searches for you, particularly perhaps the 1851 census, do you have the date from the Population Indexes of Antwerp, of the date she came to Liverpool, or does that coincide with her arrival to London?  Sorry that was a silly question, of course it does.

How about ages? do you have their approximate dates of birth?  Would there have been a reason the came to Liverpool, perhaps there was already family here? 

The possibility is that they came for an onward journey to the USA.

Have you checked the National Archives for a change of name or naturalisation?  https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

Hi,

For your information:

Mary Louise is °Mechelen, 26 November 1825; Théodorine Gemine is °Mechelen, 19 january 1846; Mary Rose is °Mechelen, 05 July 1844.

Both Mary Louise and Mary Rose came back to Belgium.

Mary Rose was married to Giovanni Sigante op 6 April 1861 Sunderland.

No other information was found concerning Theodorine Gemine.

There isn't any prove that they had relatives in Liverpool.

Neither is there any information indicating why they moved.

Thanks for all the help.

Giovanni Sigante married Marie Rosalie Kuwert in Sunderland, 1861. The only other time the name Kuwert appears in the UK records,1840-1910 Free BMD, is Charles H Kuwert who married Maria Van Riekel, Liverpool, 1850.

Do you know of any connection? What was Marie Rosalie's father's name?

The following 2 images could be the reason for arriving in London, 28 Feb, 1850, and moving on to Liverpool to attend a wedding, 10 March, 1850.
