need some help finding any records for this lady

I found Jeanne Lecomte's parents' names in a marriage contract for her second marriage, she has a Fichier origine but it's not up to date, this contract appears to have been missed.  Could my lovely friends take a look-see if they can find any records for her family please.  Thanks.

I could not find a baptism record for her, and the marriage record with Sénécal does not mention her parents at all. the only additional information is that the groom was from Ingouville (there are two Ingouvilles in the region but we can supposed this was the closest to Harfleur. The village has been merged into Le Havre). It does not say that he was previously married.
Well, Adrien Sénécal was in Benouville before, there are baptisms of children there with his first wife.  Don't know where all these small places sit in relation to each other and Harfleur.

Is there any trace of Lelat or Lat family around there?  Like a marriage for her parents?  Lecomte and Lelat that is.  Or traces of Pierre Lelat/Lat that might link him to her?
Yes, I was aware of that. (Bénouville in Seine-Maritime, right?). I can't figure out if he was born in Ingouville and married in Bénouville, or if he lived in Ingouville after the Bénouville children were born. Bénouville is much further away from Harfleur than Ingouville/Le Havre is.

Did not notice any Le Lat or Lat, but I wasn't really looking for them.
yes, Seine-Maritime.  Don't know when he traveled to Harfleur to marry there, they had one child born in France and then migrated here.

I found a family PRDH for Jean Lecompte and Marie Lelat, which states that they were married 30 Jul 1681, also lists their parents. So I looked on Wikitree and they both have a profile: Lecompte-107 and Lat-1. I don't think that they were the parents of Jeanne Lecomte.

different people entirely, from a different part of France, Jean Lecompte-107  is from Île de Ré in Aunis,  This is what I have for Jeanne Lecomte from Normandie which named her parents:

Contrat de mariage entre Julien Guillou dit Lamour fils de défunt Julien Guillou et de Jacquette Guynouazelle, de Louvigny évêché de Tours d’une part; et Jeanne Lecompte fille de Jean Lecompte et de Marie Lelat, et veuve d’Adrien Sénécal d’autre part (22 octobre 1688). Vol X pg 115 Notaire Michel Moreau

which is from the notarial acts inventory, when she remarried.  Totally different source.
I presume you are the one who was doing some work at the same time I was on Marie Lelat?  Interestingly enough, her father Pierre Lelat is from Normandy, in Écouis.
No that was someone else. I descend from Adrienne Senecal 4 times, twice through each wife so when I saw that you found the names of Jeanne's parents I added them to my Ancestry tree. The only hints that showed up on their profiles were for Jean Lecompte and Marie Le Lat that were married in 1681 so I naturally figured that they could not have been Jeanne's parents never thinking that her parents would also have the same names.

I find it interesting also that Pierre was from Normandy. Now I am wondering if Pierre was related to Jeanne, perhaps a first cousin seeing that they were born about the same time.

Thanks Danielle!
Adrien is also my great great through both his wives, my pedigree implosion continues.  :D
