Laurence Entiope (9 December 1862 – 7 April 1974) was a French supercentenarian from the overseas department of Martinique whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Laurence Entiope was born on 9 December 1862 in Le Marin, Martinique, France. Her mother was Pelagie Entiope, but her father seems to be unknown. She has 3 brothers, and an half-brother.

She seems to never have been married and thus, to not have any child.

Laurence Entiope died on 7 April 1974 in Le Lamentin, Martinique, France. She could have been the doyenne of France at the time of her death, and her successor was Marie-Ernestine Compain. However, Marie Laure du Serre-Telmon (1860-1977) was older.

Longevity records

If her age were validated, she would have been the world's oldest woman (and person) from the 18 August 1973 death of Alice Stevenson until her own death. She also would have been the first French person to reach age 110 (ahead of Marie-Virginie Duhem). Although Ferdinise Nebolle, Georgette Jeanmaire and Marie Laure du Serre-Telmon probably reached this milestone before then, their ages have not been fully validated by tbe GRG.
