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.

Notes and references

  1. Proceedings of the Royal Commissioners.... those appointed to work on Mont Orgueil Castle (1531): Guille Masson [Machon], Pasquerel Masson and Lucas Masson, masons: ABSJ, VI, 92
  2. Pasquerel Machon had died by 16 December 1591, when the first action was brought by his grandsons against Edmond Richardson, as purchaser from Dominique Machon, of the family`s principal home. The forename Pasquerel indicates an Easter birth or christening--an `Easterling`
  3. Cour d`Héritage 6/328r, see below, which action could not have included Thomasse had she not been in the direct line of descent from Pasquerel, whose home had been sold
  4. The Rev J A Messervy, in his list of Rectors of St Peter in ABSJ, VII, 138-9, states that this was a French surname, and not one from Jersey or Guernsey. He writes of Thomas Millet, below [translated]: “His mother was a Jerseywoman, of the family Machon, of Trinity [correction: St Martin], a relative of Dominique Machon...He had come from France to Guernsey in 1568, and was some years there, serving in the ministry as Rector of St Saviour..In January 1585/6 he became Rector of St Peter.” There appears to be some confusion in this statement, as to whether it was the father or son, to whom Messervy alludes. Certainly, it was the son who was Rector of St Peter, but it is unlikely that he was born to a Jersey mother in France. The arrival in 1568 “”from France” was, in all likelihood, therefore, Thomas`s arrival from Jersey, as the son of a Frenchman
  5. Rector of St Saviour, Guernsey and of St Peter, Jersey, the latter being between 1586-1614. Thomas Millet`s date of birth is, like others of an early date on this page, estimated. Thomas Millet`s curate in 1610 was Timothée Machon. This young clergyman, still in training, was son of the Rector of Trinity, Laurens Machon, son of Jean, who was of St Saviour. This may, with the choice of Lucas Machon in 1618, as godfather of Marie Machon, provide a future lead, in associating the “Descendants of Pasquerel Machon” with one or other of the families of these men
  6. Cour d`Héritage 6/377
  7. Le Viel (1592) Cour d`Héritage, (20/01/1591/2): Dominique Machon is mentioned as having sold, by that date, his house and outbuildings to Edmond Richardson. Further hearings regarding the property and its sale, were dated 1592 and 21/09/1598. In the latter, brought by Mr Thomas Millet, procureur of Thomasse Machon, daughter of..Pasquerel, Dominique Machon is shown to have been fils ainé de Pasquerel Machon : CH 6/328 (reverse side of folio). Edmond Richardson, to judge by several Richardson godparents chosen by this particular Machon family, must have been a comparatively close relative of theirs
  8. Of Bas Rozel. Both he and his nephew were Jean Machon fils Dominique. The St Martin burial in this name, in 1651, could have been that of either man
  9. Enfant à Jean Machon, fils Dominique
  10. Elizabeth`s godfather was André Le Manquais
  11. Jeanne`s godfather was Hiou Richardson. She had a son named Philippe Machon, born out of wedlock, who was christened on the 09/03/1635/6 at St Martin. He may have been the Philippe Machon "fils Jean, fils Dominique" buried in 1692, St Martin
  12. Marguerite`s godfather was Jean Le Manquais
  13. Jean Noel settled, after his marriage, at Les Vaux, St Martin
  14. Described in the St Martin Register as “Jean fils Jean, fils Dominique,” his godfather was Jean Richardson
  15. Marie`s godfather was Lucas Machon
  16. His burial entry in the St Martin Register reads: “Thomas fils Jean, fils Dominique
  17. Edmond Machon and his brother Dominique sued Edmond Richardson for the return of the house sold by their father, Dominique “le Viel”: C.H. 6/41,48 (16/12/1591). His may be the burial in this name, recorded in St Martin on the 18/10/1612, as he is described as "Edemond Machon, des Vaux," the address in the 1640s of Jean Noel, husband of Edmond`s niece, Marguerite Machon. It should be noted, however, that there were other properties in St Martin of this name, which means `the folds or slopes`, often those above creeks or bays, but also those above valleys, as in this case. Furthermore, one of these was also owned by a Machon family, being that of Jean Machon (living 1634), son of George, who should not be confused with those mentioned above. Likely places in St Martin to find a property so-named, other than at Gorey, were on, or part of the way down, the north-facing slopes to the south of Rozel Valley, which is where this property is, or overlooking Fliquet Bay. Both places are in Bas Rozel, being Lower (eastern) Rozel. That overlooking Rozel valley was in 1849, still in Noel ownership. Directly above the farm are La Pièce Machon (Mt. 111) and Le Clos ou Pièce Machon (Mt. 143), which act as fairly unambiguous pointers to this being the correct location, in this instance
  18. Buried merely as the “femme Dominique Machon
  19. Olive Machon “fille Jean, fils Dominique
  20. Christened as "fille Jean, fils Dominique, et Sara"
  21. Described in the register as the “3e enfant”, Elizabeth Machon “fille Jean, fils Dominique” had as godparents "Jean Machon, Grandpère", which supplies the maiden name of the child`s mother, and Elizabeth, widow of Daniel Le Moigne
  22. Helier also wished to sue Edmond Richardson regarding the purchase of the property of Dominique Machon, “le Viel”. This is of interest as it again shows that the property had formerly belonged to Pasquerel Machon. Helier would not otherwise have been able to stake a claim upon it. He was hampered, however, by the lack of co-operation of his near relatives who, by 1600, were probably unwilling to spend further money on the matter. His action therefore was, in part, to compel Dominique Machon and Mr Thomas Millet, as procureur of his mother, to participate in advising him: C.H. 6/400 (September 1600)
  23. Tentative placement: Lucas Masson appointed in 1531 to work on Mont Orgueil Castle? Perhaps grandfather of Lucas Machon (1570?- ) of Faldouet (descendants)
