"My family tree can be found on https:ancestry.co.uk"
Forum members are not going to pay £13.99 to see your family tree.
Could you please just tell us the details right here?
What happened in the year 1714?
Jan Clavaux - 1 jan 2018 om 18:38
I have tried to figure out which people you are writing about.
According to the baptism registration of Mertinus Mars on 15-8-1793 (not 1714) in Princenhage, his parents Petrus Mars and Maria Theresa Compere were natives from "Lisen pro pe Tinen" (Lijsem close to Tienen, Belgium): https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijsem
Their son Daniel at his marriage was from "Liesen"
Their son Louis from "Lincent"
Last but not least, when Pieter died in 1819, it was said, that he was born in Lissen, in the Namur department in Belgium

Dear Jan Clavaux,
Excuse me I am new to writing on forums to see if I can find help. Yes sorry I agree it is a cost as is Plus on this site. Forgive me all for writing in English but my Dutch is not very good and although I can understand mostly I must translate to be sure. I have just now uploaded my gedcom to this website in an effort to make it accessible if this helps. Otherwise I will try and write out the lineage.
Thank you for replying.

My family tree is in the process of being published Marsé Family Tree (Mars, Marcâ)
Jan cunningham - 2 jan 2018 om 21:32
Pardon me I should have said 1715 which is the date I have for the birth of Petrus Marzee father (Jean (Johannes, Deodatus) Mars (Marsé, Marsa)
There are a lot of versions of Marsé about and I at one time thought Deodatus was perhaps a form of Dora Datus which I think is now incorrect. I wished to place this in my tree to see the possibilities but will remove them.
Jan cunningham - 2 jan 2018 om 21:46
Deodatus is just the (church-)Latin translation of the French christian name Dieudonné.
But I don't see why you call him his father.
Anyhow, good luck with your research.
Jan Clavaux - 2 jan 2018 om 21:57
In that case I will remove Dora Datus! Excuse me but I am not a professional but a working mum doing this in my spare time.
Is your interest in the Marsé tree also?
Jan cunningham - 2 jan 2018 om 22:03
16 Aug 1742 Captisani lily Peter John Peter Mars and Catherine Ledoux partners Godfather: Johannes Marcia and Adilia Marsi as sponsor
Is the translation correct in regards to another relative Adilia Marsi?
I have encountered this
It all gets quite confusing!
Jan cunningham - 2 jan 2018 om 22:30
This means that the info you have in the jpeg is that Peter John Peter Mars and Catherine Ledoux were Peter and Meter Deodatus and Catharina Mars?
Jan cunningham - 2 jan 2018 om 22:48
Sorry my translation wasn't quite correct
captisani (? does this mean head? Peter) John Peter Mars and Catherine Ledoux partner. John Marsias godfather and godmother Adilia

Hello Janette Maria Driesen, it says baptizani, not captizani.
I recommend you explain here briefly how you think your mother is related with the couple Petrus Marsé x Maria Theresia Compere, just to make sure people on this forum who want to help are working in the right direction.
Other people have already published data, but please be very careful with all of those. It is better to check everything yourself with the original records.
See for instance here: https://www.genealogieonline.nl/genealogische-gegevens-tilburg-goirle/I91043.php
In the death record that you cited, which you can find here as well (and open to read the details):
it is said that the parents of Peter (Pieter, Petrus etc) are Johannes Marsé and Catharina de Stek. This should be confirmed by the Lijsem/Lincent (Belgium) record of his baptization. He was 'timmerman' and 74 years old, but the indication of age is often wrong in death records of those days. All of this information likely came from two 'outsiders' who reported his death and is therefore less reliable. Maria Theresia Compere had already passed away.
Per the marriage found by Jan Clavaux his name is actually Jo(ann)es Petrus and that fits nicely with the baptization record he also found. It would be better to go search for all the Marsé-family members of that time in Lincent and to note all the witnesses (peter en meter) as well to make sure you got the right parents.
You can find the church books of Lincent here: https://search.arch.be/nl/zoeken-naar-archieven/zoekresultaat/ead/index/eadid/BE-A0523_714102_714458_FRE, but you need to register first (free of charge, other than ancestry.com ) before you can actually open them.
I hope this helps.

Maria, thank you very much. I am sure my way off going about family tree research is much the same as many. It does mean time must be spent on it.
My tree begins like this starting with me.
Janette maria Driesen - Henrietta Theresia Marsé (my mother)b1932 living - Cornelia Josephus Marsé (her father)1896-1964 x Elizabeth M Brand - Hendrikus PL Marsé (his father) 1872-1938 x Antonia de Bruijn - Johannes GP Marsé (his father) 1825-1906 x Anna C Brokers - Louis Marsé (his father) 1790-1838 x Clasina vd Hessenberg - Petrus Marsé (his father) 1745-1819 x Maria T Compere.
I have gathered this information via an uncle in Holland and via wiewaswie and other trees and archives. It does look as of I must check Belgium archives now but their website seems even more difficult to negotiate.
Thank you for all your help.
