[Note typo in my original message: it should be è not é]

Ordinal è shows up when people write première as 1ère, but that is an 
error, and the correct ordinal abbreviation of première is 1re.

The standard French ordinal is e -- e.g. 2e, 3e. 4e, etc. -- except for 
the singular in which one needs to distinguish masculine premier and 
feminine première, which are respectively 1er and 1re.
