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

Le Quesne and Dixon, in The de Gruchys of Jersey, Second Edition, (2000), question the identity of 'Jean de Gruchy junior, of Oxford, Goldsmith' who was listed in the Parliamentary Return of 1773. Further research has shown this Jean as having been both of Oxford and a goldsmith. He was, though, after his marriage to a London Huguenot, based primarily in London but seems to have retained the Oxford connection for some years. Jean de Gruchy senior, probably his uncle Jean (1696- ), will have been, by implication, also a goldsmith and may have taught his nephew the trade
