Cazaly ~ Second Generation

Note: Usually the baptism records used the French names and the marriage records used the English equivalents.

    Issue of Monsieur Cazaly and Madame Marguerette  
1.   Guillaume (William) CAZALY
Born c June 1728 (based on age of 96 at death) in Languedoc, France.
William arrived with his mother and many siblings in London about 1745 as a result of Huguenot persecution in his homeland in France. They joined the parish of St Matthew, Bethnal Green.

He is listed as Godfather of nephew Moise Dumas at his baptism on 4 Sep 1754.
Guillaume Cazaly and Magdelaine Pouling are listed as Godfather and Godmother of nephew Guillaume Cazaly at his baptism on 31 May 1759.

William married (1) 2 Sep 1759 at St Matthew, Bethnal Green, London to Magdelene POLAIN (ref IGI & Ancestry London marriages). The Banns were read 5 Aug, 12 Aug, & 19 Aug of William Cazaly of this parish, bachelor, and Magdalen Polain of this parish, spinster (ref Ancestry). She was born c1741 (ref Ancestry London Bap Marr & Bur, her burial). Her baptism has not been found in London and she may have also been a Huguenot immigrant from France.

William's abode in 1761 at the death of daughter Margaret was Bethnal Green (ref Ancestry London Bap Marr & Bur).
Madeleine "Cazally" is listed as Godmother of her nephew Pierre, son of Jean Pierre and Jeanne in 1762; this is probably her.

Magdalene's burial 16 Apr 1764 at Christ Church Spitalfields, her abode Wheeler Street, age 23 (ref Ancestry London Bap Marr & Bur).

William married (2) 4 July 1765 at Spitalfields, Christ Church with St Mary and St Stephen, Stepney, London to Anne Louise DUCHEMIN (the marriage rec and IGI have Anne (or Ann) Lucy which was presumably a short form of her name). The record states that "William Cazaly of this Parish Widower & Ann Lucy Duchemin of the same Spinster were married in this Church by Licence this fourth Day of July in the year 1765 by me W.S. Done Curate. This marriage was solemnized between us William Cazaly Anne Lucy Duchemin in the presence of I Le Mary, Abram. Dupree." There is also a record of a Marriage Bond in Ancestry.

She was born c1744 according to her death in 1823 aged 79 (see French records). See LEVESQUE tree, page 5, for her possible descent.

William and Anne were witnesses to several of his siblings' marriages.
William's first four children died within the period 1761 to 1770 and a further one in 1772. From 1766 to 1772, the residence was always listed as Wheeler Street.

Anne Louise was a sponsor at the baptism of nephew Louis Polain in 1768.

He was listed in 1774 at the corner of Spital Square, London in the occupation of stocking manufactory, textiles (ref London Directory for 1774).
Note: "Spitalfields lies at the heart of the East End, an area known for its spirit and strong sense of community. Through out its history, it has been an area of constant change.Following the edict of Nantes in 1685, the Huguenots fled France, bringing with them the skills of silk weaving and building the once grand houses in the conservation area around Fournier Street. Today's leather and textile trades are a continuation of this earlier tradition of weaving. The Spitalfields website has many bits of information such as, Artillery Passage used to be the area used for archery and shooting practice by Henry VIII's Honourary Artillery Company." For further information see www.spitalfields.co.uk.

In August/September 1777 a number of assaults took place between William Cazaly, John Peter Cazaly, Claude Jayot and Justice of the Peace Penleaze, a dispute having happened between Claude Jayot and John Peter Cazaly touching a piece of Mantua Silk, the assailants being armed in one account with pistols and cutlasses. Some documentation on the resulting court appearances are found in
www.londonlives.org.
For example:
"The King on the Prosn. of Claude Jayot agt. Wm. Cazaly for an Assault. Bail on a Plea of Not Guilty.
Robert Pollain of Old Cock Lane in the Parish of St. Mathew Bethnal Green in the Co. of Middx Weaver and Absolom Pollain of Slaughter Street in the same Weaver." (ref
www.londonlives.org)

He was listed in 1784 and 1785 at No. 1, Norton Falgate, London, in the occupation of hosier, clothing (ref Bailey's British Directory). (Refs listed in Ancestry.) His abode was Norton Falgate at burial of dau Charlotte in 1778 and son Benjamin in 1785. He was elected a Director of the French Protestant Hospital on 1 Oct 1800 at La Providence, Bath Street (ref Wagner Papers).

In her application to the French Hospital, Maria Pepper described him as "William Cazaly, a French Refugee, late of Spital Square and for many years Elder of the French Protestant Church, St. John Street, Brick Lane .." and her nephew John Phillip Gee used almost exactly the same words in his application.

He made a fortune before returning to France at the age of 80 and purchasing the Chateau du Pied Bouquet which was owned by the family earlier. The Chateau fell out of the family when his grandson sold it in 1859. (Ref. notes by Robert Nash.)

Anne died 17 Sep 1823 at Puech Bouquet, Sommieres, France, aged 79. See page of French records for further information on her death.

William died 13 Nov 1824 age 96 yr 4 mths at Sommieres, France. (ref Nimes MPD 1822-1828, 5 Mi 14 R 13; Will Catalogue Reference: PROB 11/1701 catalogue, web site pro.gov.uk.) Ref French Death Cert and English Will; see Wills page for transcription. See page of French records for further information on his death.

Mlle. Marguerite Cazali is listed as Godmother of nephew Absolom Dumas at his baptism on 4 Sep 1757, and of Louis, son of Paul and Antoinette Toureille, in 1759. In Ancestry Public Trees Paul Toureille is listed as the elder brother of John Toureille (and also in notes by Nigel Prevost in 1979).

Marr 11 Jul 1762 at St Matthews Bethnal Green London to John TOUREILLE (ref IGI).
The Banns of the marriage between Margaret Cazaly, spinster, and John Toureille, bachelor, both of the parish, were read on 6, 13 & 20 Jun 1762 at Saint Matthew, Bethnal Green (ref Ancestry London marriages). The marriage took place on 11 July 1762 at St Matthew, Bethnal Green: No 269.

5.   Louis (Lewis) CAZALY
Birth date in France not known.
Lewis arrived with his mother and many siblings in London about 1745 as a result of Huguenot persecution in his homeland in France. They joined the parish of St Matthew, Bethnal Green. Going by the shipping record in 1774, he was born c1746 which would make him a baby on arrival and place him further down this family. However, that record could be inaccurate, particularly as Susanne was born in 1740.

Marr 25 Dec 1767 at Saint Matthew Bethnal Green London to Susanne POUPARD as Lewis and Susanna (ref IGI). The Banns were read between Lewis Cazly [sic] Batchelor, and Susanna Poupard Spinster, both of this Parish, on 25 Oct 1767, 1 Nov 1767, 8 Nov 1767 (ref Ancestry). The marriage record reads "Lewis Cazly of this Parish Batchelor and Susanna Poupard of this parish Spinster were married in this church by Banns published Oct 25th Nov 1st Nov 8th 1767 this twenty fifty day of December in the year 1767 by me Haddon Smith Curate. This marriage was solemnized between us Lewis Cazaly Susannah Poupard in the presence of Andrew Poupard Ph. Ja. May (ref Ancestry London Marriages).

Susanne was born 28 Sep 1740, bap 29 Sep 1740 at Wheeler Street French Huguent, Spitalfields, London, dau of Pierre Poupard and Susanne (ref IGI).

Louis was a sponsor at the baptism of nephew Louis Polain in 1768.

After the birth of the three children, there is a record that Lewis emigrated from London in 1774 to Granada, aged 28. The source of the information in Ancestry is as follows:
"COLDHAM, PETER WILSON. The Complete Book of Emigrants, 1751-1776. A comprehensive listing compiled from English public records of those who took ship to the Americas for political, religious, and economic reasons; of those who were deported for vagrancy, roguery, or non-conformity; and of those who were sold to labour in the new colonies. Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1993. 349p."

The Caribbean island of Grenada had a turbulent history. Shortly before this time, Grenada had been a French Colony, but it was formally ceded to Britain by the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The French recaptured the island during the American War of Independence some time after 1779. It is very likely that Lewis was involved in some of these wars and it is possible that he went to work as a surgeon.

Daughter Louise's abode at her death as a child in 1779 was Pelham Street (ref Ancestry London Bap Marr & Burials).

In son William's Will of 1792, his mother was specified as the beneficiary and Executrix, in the name of Susannah Cazaly of St Leonard Shoreditch Middlesex.

Susanne Cazaly nee Poupard seems to have been admitted to "La Providence" on 1 Dec 1810 as 'elderly of 68 years, very infirm of purpose, once a member of the Church of London', on the recommendation of Louis Mercier Pasteur, Moise Dumas, G. Cazaly, Francois Jolit (ref applications to "La Providence" French Protestant Hospital).

"CAZALY, Susanne, née Poupard. Inmate. e. [elected] Dec.1, 1810 (L: [Steward's Log-book] Dec.12). B/A [to whom given the Billet d'Admission] "a Mr. Bernard". d. [died] June 24, 1814.

Cazaly, Francois Jolit [at side:] Admise le 1er Deceme 1810"." [Huguenot Quarto Series Vol 52]

Burial of Susanna Cazaly on 28 Jun 1814 at Saint Luke, Old Street, Islington, Middlesex, aged 72; her abode was the French Hospital (ref Ancestry London Burials under Cozaly). French Hospital records have: "Susanne Cazaly nee Poupard e 1 Dec 1810, d Jun 24 1814".

Jane arrived with her mother and many siblings in London about 1745 as a result of Huguenot persecution in her homeland in France. They joined the parish of St Matthew, Bethnal Green. She is listed as Jane in her marriage and Jeanne in the baptism of her children.

Marr 11 May 1761 at Saint Matthew Bethnal Green London to Absalom POLAIN (ref IGI & Ancestry London marriages). The Banns were read 19 Apr, 26 Apr, & 3 May of Absalom [spelt Absolam] Polain of this parish, bachelor, and Jane Cazaly, spinster (ref Ancestry). He was called Abraham in the baptism of children Catherine in 1762 and Abraham in 1765.

Absalom was born or baptised 1 Mar 1731/32, Saint Cuthberts, Edinburgh, Scotland, son of Claud Polain and Catharin Mass. Absalom's family came from Picardie, Seine Maritime (80), France originally.
Absalom Polain is listed as Godfather of nephew Absolom Dumas at his baptism on 4 Sep 1757, assuming it refers to this person.

In 1772, Absolom Polain & Janne Cazaley were sponsers for the baptism of nephew Etienne Rive.

Birth date in France not known. John arrived with his mother and many siblings in London about 1745 as a result of Huguenot persecution in his homeland in France. They joined the parish of St Matthew, Bethnal Green. The baptism of his wife in 1739 suggests he was born earlier than 1739.

Married 17 Sep 1760 at Shoreditch St Leonard of John Cazli to Ann BRICKMAN; the records which is written by the Curate states "John Cazli of this Parish Batchelor and Ann Brickman of this parish Spinster were married in this Church by Banns this seventeenth day of September in the year 1760 by me Joseph Cookson (Curate). This marriage was solemnized between us John Cazli X his mark, Ann Brickman X her mark, in the presence of John Munns, William Burgess" (ref Ancestry London Marriages).
