  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      - Identified as son of Jean Barcant and Anne Masson in Barcant family history compiled by Geoffrey Barcant, Port of Spain, Trinidad. He would have been born in Nancy, France.
      - Full date given as 29 Prairial Year 9 (which equates to 18 June 1801) in his birth record in the civil records of Nancy, Meurthe-et-Moselle, France, Naissances, An IX, volume 3, page 23 recto. Was the older of two twins, being born at 3:00 a.m. Parents named as Jean Barcant and Marie Anne Masson. Witnesses were Pierre Fradin (age 50), Antoine Masson (age 52), Catherine Masson (28 years), and Elisabeth Bartin (age 53 years). Record available online in the Departmental Archives of Meurthe-et-Moselle (Arch. dép. de Meurthe-et-moselle, Registres paroissiaux et d'état civil, Nancy (état civil) 1800-1801, 5 Mi 394/R 117), image 357 of 459, right-hand page, first full entry, viewable at this link.

      IMMIGRATION:
      - Arrived in Trinidad around 1823, according to Barcant family history compiled by Geoffrey Barcant, Port of Spain, Trinidad.
      - Passenger arrival record on 23 February 1825 printed in the Trinidad Gazette, dated the same day, available in the National Archives of Trinidad & Tobago. Arrived from Martinique in the French sloop St. Charles. Not known if this was his first arrival in Trinidad or not.

      MARRIAGE:
      Wife identified as Elizabeth Mathalony in Barcant family history compiled by Geoffrey Barcant, Port of Spain, Trinidad. Marriage took place about 1828, according to his research.

      ADDRESS:
      - 5 Nelson Street, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (Research of Geoffrey Barcant).
      - This address is listed under his son, Alexander Barcant, in the Trinidad Yearbook for 1886, with no mention of Jean Pierre Augustin Barcant.

      DEATH:
      - Likely died in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
      - He is listed as a baptismal sponsor of his first grandson on 29 September 1874, so was still alive at this time.
      - Since he is not listed in the Trinidad Yearbook for 1886, but his sons are (including one at his home address from other records), so it appears that he died before 1886.

      HISTORICAL SKETCH: In a letter of 14 February 1992 to Halcyon (née Barcant) Sellier, Geoffrey Barcant provided the following information:
      "In 1822 Anne Masson/Barcant, widow of Jean our ancestor, applied legally for Vincent's estate [i.e., the estate of Charles Vincent Barcant] on behalf of her son Jean Pierre Auguste Barcant. He came to Trinidad around 1823 with his sister Coralie Adelaide Barcant, obtained probate, and carried on the jewelry business. About 1828 he married Elizabeth Mathalony and had three children - Charles, Alexander and Victoria Stephanie."
