Descendants of Philip Le Maistre



Maison du Coin, St Brelade, home in the 18th century to the merchants Villeneuve and, from the middle of the 19th century, of their Le Maistre descendants

The affluence of this prominent Le Maistre family, descended from a third son, who was a schoolmaster, from one of the Island`s many farming families, was due to his fortuitous marriage in 1818 to Esther Brine. Four of their five sons chose to enter the ministry influenced, in all likelihood, by the large number of clergymen in familes related to Esther`s grandmother, Esther Carcos, which included the Revd. Francis Jeune, DCL, Dean of Jersey and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford

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
