  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      - Full name given in genealogical information provided by George F. de Verteuil. This source gives the year of birth as 1804 and the location as Lognac, France.
      - Full date of birth calculated as 31 July 1804 from the description in his French civil birth record, recorded in the Bordeaux-Centre arrondissement of the city of Bordeaux, Gironde, France. In this record, dated the 14 Thermidor, Year 12, it is stated that Louis was born "avant hier matin a dix heures," or at 10:00 a.m. in the morning of the day before yesterday. This, his birth date would have been 12 Thermidor Year 12, which equates to 31 July 1804. Name given in the record is Louis François Léon d'Adabie, and his parents were named as François Thomas Dabadie and Louise Adélaïde Françoise Peschier.
      - Louis's civil birth record states that he was born in the house of his father, described as being "au Tondut, Maison Nommé Lognac." There is a neighborhood (Fr: quartier) of Bordeaux today called Tondu, with a main street known as Rue du Tondu. In an 1832 map of Bordeaux, this road was called the Chemin du Tondut, and ran southwest out of the city into the surrounding countryside. So, it is likely that the "Tondut" referenced in this record is this neighborhood in the southwestern part of the city (but which might have been more farmland in 1804). It should not be confused with a locality called Tondut that is situated 24 km to the southeast of Bordeaux, as that would be far from the Bordeaux-Centre arrondissement in which the birth occurred and was registered. And Louis's birth record makes clear that the birth did not occur in a town called Lognac, but that Lognac was the name of the house in the Tondut quartier of Bordeaux-Centre in which the birth took place.
      - The French civil birth record for Louis d'Abadie is in the Bordeaux-Centre volume of the Greffes des Tribunaux de la Gironde: Repertoire des Naissances de l'An 12e, page 120 (Archives départementales de la Gironde, 4 E 873), viewable at this link (right-hand page, entry no. 757).

      MARRIAGE:
      - Wife identified as Hortense de Verteuil and date of marriage given as 13 September 1831 in Anthony de Verteuil, Sir Louis de Verteuil: His Life and Times (Port of Spain, Columbus Publishers, 1973), p. 54.
      - Wife identified as Caroline Hortense de Verteuil, but full date of marriage given as 13 October 1831 in contemporaneous scrapbook entry of Louis François Léon's mother, quoted in Anthony de Verteuil, The de Verteuils of Trinidad - 1797-1997: A Case Study of a French Creole Family (Port of Spain, Litho Press, 1997), p. 69. This latter date is given greater weight, because it has a contemporaneous source.
      - Wife also identified as Caroline Hortense de Verteuil in genealogical information provided by George F. de Verteuil.

      FAMILY ORIGIN:
      According to Anthony de Verteuil, The de Verteuils of Trinidad - 1797-1997: A Case Study of a French Creole Family (Port of Spain, Litho Press, 1997), pp. 68-69:
      "The D'Abadie family came to Trinidad at the end of the eighteenth century. They originated in Gascony in the south of France, and in Trinidad were merchants and planters. They owned considerable land around present day D'Abadie, five miles to the west of Arima."

      OCCUPATION:
      Surveyor and proprietor of Sainte-Rose Estate, Arima (not to be confused with the nearby Santa Rosa Estate) - 1851 Census of Trinidad, available in the National Archives of Trinidad and Tobago, Port of Spain. He likely surveyed what is called "D'Abadie's Town" in the 1851 Census, and is known as D'Abadie today.

      DEATH:
      Alive in 1851 Census of Trinidad.
