Possibly one of the first Dutch/European settlers to South Australia??? If so, they had their children in France. Perhaps crew on one of VOC ships travelling round the Cape to Batavia (present day Jakarta). Perhaps shipwrecked??? It is a fact that the family got separated - Charles being part of the first European settlers in South Africa & His parents being the first settlers in Australia.


le Fevre in Boucher

Charles Prevost was born about the year 1650 to Henri Prevost and Jeanne de Fief. He came from a village described in the Guines registers as Dombroy, probably Dombrie, near Saint-Amand-les-Eaux, south-east of Lille towards Valenciennes. In 1673 he was working in Dunkirk as a master wheelwright and on October 8 of that year married Marie le Fevre, a year his junior and the daughter of David le Fevre and Elisabeth le Bleu of Marck. As all their children from France were born near Calais, it seems likely that their father left Dunkirk soon after his marriage.
