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

Notes and references

  1. Of The Yews, St Peter, grandson of Jean Le Brocq, Sermenté, St Ouen, (1668 Extente) and great-great-grandson of Matthieu, Constable of St Ouen (-1552-81) and (1592-95)
  2. Of The Yews, merchant, purchased 46 vergées of farmland, between 1708-1747
  3. Merchant and farmer
  4. Jacques Balleine`s mother, Elizabeth Le Brocq, was one of the co-heiresses of the Le Brocqs of St Aubin, who had been, from 1595, notable wine merchants and shipowners, trading with France and Southampton
  5. Of The Yews, farmer and merchant. His family business is first described in detail in an anonymous book A Summer Stroll through the Islands of Jersey and Guernsey, (Jersey: De Fries, 1809): "We have now to mention Le Brocque`s shop in St Peter, which forms a complete magazine or 'depot', of almost every article in domestic use, from the most expensive wines, to all the inferior minutiae of household consumption." In addition to wine, the other articles "in domestic use" will have been groceries and chandlery. Judging from newspaper advertisements, they were also seedsmen, who stocked fruit trees and saplings, probably giving its name to the adjoining Rue des Sapins, where they had land. This particular William Le Brocq seems to have farmed the 46 vergées, leaving his brother Jean Le Brocq to run the business
  6. Of La Hougue, St Peter
  7. Merchant, founder in 1822 of "Wm Le Brocq jnr and Co" of Jersey and Nova Scotia, ship owners in the Canadian maritime fisheries. In 1823 he added to his commercial activities a linen and woollen drapery business in St Helier, run from Halkett House, a former Government House, which stood at the junction of King Street and Halkett Place. Inheriting The Yews, its farm and business in 1828, he dissolved the paternal business the following February and sold the house and farm to his younger brother, Philippe, in 1831. Like their father, he wished only to farm. In 1829 he had bought the former de La Garde property in Gorey, where he settled. The dissolving of the Le Brocq partnership at The Yews, as advertised on 21 February 1829 in the Chronique de Jersey, corrects the suggestion in ABSJ (2014 that the business may have remained in the family`s hands, albeit under local managers, until 1851
  8. Living then at Arichat, Nova Scotia, daughter of the adjutant of a regiment stationed nearby
  9. Wine merchant at the junction of King Street and Pitt Street, Lieut, RMIJ
  10. Mercer, formerly of St Lawrence, Southampton, where he married in September 1796. (Marriage License Allegation; Universal British Directory, 1793-1798.) His wife`s date of birth, in Ireland, has been calculated from her being of full age at the time of the 1796 Marriage License Allegation, which is within four years of her age as given in the 1841 St Helier Census. Her age as given at death, which differed by ten years, was perhaps a clerical error, as it would have meant a marriage at the age of 14 or 15
  11. Emigrated to Australia and had children there
  12. Of Diélament Manor, Capt RMIJ
  13. Emigrated in 1852 to Australia, with Edmund Henry Collas, the brother-in-law of his sister Charlotte: Empire (Sydney NSW: 1850-1875), featuring a passenger list, dated 7 August 1852, of those arriving from London on the 900-ton ship Saracen. The list includes Edmund Henry Collas and, next in the list, "D Le Brog". Douglas is said to have been successful in the Ballarat goldfields, returning to Jersey on inheriting his father`s house and land at Gorey
