Huguenot Origins : Peter Buckea, Silkweaver.

Our family, on my mother’s and grandmother’s side can be traced back to the wedding of Peter Buckea (Silkweaver) to Eleanor Turpin on 07th March 1763 in St Mathews Church Bethnal Green. Banns of marriage were published on three Sundays previous. The first 7 children were baptised in St Mathews and the last 3 were baptised in St Leonards Shoreditch as they presumably moved house and were now in Swan Yard & New Inn Yard Shoreditch.
