Descendants of Louis Gorin

This tree was sent to us in 2018 to correct errors in Descendants of Jean Gorin, which was added to the site in 2016. It was submitted by a user in shorter form and was cross-checked against Jersey records and expanded with French records.

However, it has now been suggested that the immigrant to Jersey who married Marguerite Le Roy was not Olivier Jacques Gorin, but Brandan Olivier Gorin, and that the first five generations in the earlier tree are, therefore, not connected to generations 6 and 7.

There is a record of the marriage of Brandan Olivier and Marguerite at St Helier Registry Office and the birth certificate below for Brandan confirms his immediate ancestry.


We have created this tree and, following our standard practice, will leave both trees on the site until we are able to carry out further research. Descendants of Francois Eugene Gorin in Australia inform us that DNA testing confirms their connection to the ancestry shown in this tree.

As with the earlier tree, its origins can be traced back to the commune of Saint Julien, Cotes d'Armor in north Brittany, and while it is highly probable that the heads of the two trees have common ancestry, records are not available that far back to confirm this, and there is certainly no overlap further down the trees

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.
