In common with the majority of our trees, this descendancy has been subject to regular review by site editors and checked against Jersey church records. Trees including French ancestry have also been checked as far as possible against French primary records. It is not always possible to carry out such checks on sections of trees with United Kingdom and/or colonial content

Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

  4. Entered the Solicitor`s office of Moses Gibaut as a clerk, moved to the Vicomte`s office and was then admitted in 1858 as an Ecrivain (solicitor). He then studied for three and a half years in Paris at the Ecole de Droit. He was admitted, in 1868, after passing the qualifying examination, to practise as an Advocate at the Jersey Bar. He soon became a leading figure in the Court. In 1892, he was elected Batonnier of the Jersey Bar. He was one of the founding members of La Société Jersiaise and was from 1859 to 1877 a militia officer in the Town Regiment, rising to the rank of Captain. In 1881, he was elected Constable of St Helier, an office that he retained until ill-health caused his retirement in 1896. His health then improved and he returned to serve the Town and parish as Constable, 1899-1902--. In 1897, he had the honour of having erected in his honour, during his lifetime, a bronze bust, which was placed in the Parade. This larger-than-life figure passed away in 1908, leaving behind him a legacy of continuous hard work, undertaken with tireless zeal and devotion to public duty
