More on Madeleine Crommelin and Francis Hutcheson

I accessed the following deed in the Registry of Deeds, Henrietta Street, Dublin.  It gives a marriage date for Madeleine/Magdallen Crommelin and Francis Hutcheson of November 1728.

This deed mentions two members of the Lavalade family, the Rev. Charles Lavalade of the French Church in Lisburn, and one of his five sisters, Magdalen Lavalade who married Alexander Crommelin.    These Lavalades are possibly related to our immediate paternal ancestor, Agnes Lavalade, who married Reid Wilson of Ballygunaghun, Donaghcloney, Co. Down, in about 1828.

Also mentioned in the deed is James Crommelin but it's unclear where he fits into the Crommelin family.

22nd November 1737:  Deed 88-230-623584
