Descendants of John Nicolle


John Nichol came to Jersey as Gentleman Porter of Mont Orgueil and changed the spelling of his name to Nicolle, which was the form in common use in the island. He bought Longueville Manor in 1480. This family died out in the island when Hugh (gen 5) sold the manor and left Jersey for England. It is not known whether he had children.

There is no record of his siblings Nicolas and Marguerite marrying and having children in Jersey. Hostes (gen 4) was Gentleman Porter of Mont Orgueil from 1551, Constable of St Saviour from 1558, Attorney General until 1561, and then Bailiff until his death in 1564. There are a number of wildly inaccurate online trees for this family. The lineage shown here is based on the entry for Hostes in George Balleine's Biographical Dictionary of Jersey

Nicolle family page and links to other trees

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

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.
