Descendants of Guille Machon


Machon of La Ville Machon

This tree, upon which work is ongoing, must be regarded as tentative. Although we have no particular reason to doubt the early generations in this tree, added in 2014, they have to be considered somewhat speculative. We have found no records for Estienne at generation 5 and it is possible that he did not exist, with Estienne (1624- ) being the father of Estienne (1668- ). All baptisms and marriages are in St Saviour, unless otherwise indicated.

Note: Entries for the first three generations of this tree were all of Trinity parishioners. This and other Trinity Machon stems did not record any baptisms in the parish`s early registers, the lines having apparently failed to produce male heirs other than Jean (gen. 3), who settled in St Saviour. The property belonging to the Machons in the Vingtaine of Rozel bore their name, La Ville Machon.

The tree was reviewed in 2019, and in 2021 and 2024, by Guy Dixon

Machon 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

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.
