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. Senior
  2. Junior
  3. Nicolas Romeril either had a Le Gallais mother or wife. Cour d`Héritage (CH), 1528 [translated]: “John Le Gallais sued by Collas (or Nicolas) Romeril, to cause him to recognise him as a blood relative” [and as such, having a claim on the inheritance of the said Le Gallais` parents] This points to the likelihood of a Le Gallais mother. Such actions do not indicate the defendant`s refusal to fulfill his duty as the eldest son, in arranging a partage, but tended to hasten events and were often quite amicable. For example, in 1534 Collas Romeril was acting on behalf of John Le Gallais, in an action before the same court against Matthieu Le Geyt, who had purchased a part of their inheritance. He followed it with a similar action, himself, against Le Geyt. In this instance, however, the court recorded it as being “in right of his wife". The following identifies Romeril`s brother-in-law, Le Feuvre: CH June 1537: “Nicolas Le Feuvre, in right of his wife,” in an action against Nicolas Romeril, “to provide [his wife] with a part of the inheritance”. Then, in December that year, in a continuation of this action, with the same parties, a further piece of information is recorded: “Nicolas Romeril junior sued by Nicolas Le Feuvre, in right of his wife........” Being the party responsible for the `partage`, he will have been the elder son. Nicolas senior will, almost certainly, have been his recently deceased father
  4. The ainé, or elder son, living St John?
  5. Le plus jeune, Langton Miscellany, at La Société Jersiaise. He had settled in St Helier, making it more likely that he was a cadet son with an elder brother, as yet unidentified
  6. Placed in and by La Généalogie de la Famille Ahier, by the Rev J A Messervy. In 1582, (CH) Edouard Romeril, who lived on the Fief de Mélèches, in St Helier, was required by Thomas Lempriere, fils Philippe, to prove that “he and his predecessors had enjoyed without interruption for 40 years a certain bank, in St Saviour, to the south-east of the field named La Pièce au Roulx.” Edouard`s descent from the first two Nicolases, above, and their Le Gallais spouse, is reflected as late as September 1574, before the C.H. when, having sold a part of his Le Gallais inheritance to Guillaume de Ste Croix, the latter`s son, Helier, was sued for `la retraite` by Matthieu Le Gallais
  7. CH 6/22 (1591): “Nicolas Romeril, elder son of Edouard Romeril and of Guillemine, his wife, sued by Thomas Romeril and his joint-heirs [plural], regarding the division of the said Guillemine`s inheritance
  8. Registre Public, RP 1/120 (1603): “Nicolas Romeril, fils Edouard, and Elizabeth, his wife, daughter of Thomas Le Bailiff.....”
  9. Of age in 1603: RP 2/44 (1603): “Nicolas Romeril and Jean Romeril his eldest son, and of Elizabeth, wife of the said Nicolas, and daughter of Thomas Le Bailiff, sell to Nicolas Lempriere, 20 cabots of annual wheat rente..”. Also, R.P.2/162 (1607): Jean Romeril, eldest son of Nicolas and of Elizabeth, his wife, daughter of Thomas Le Bailiff, the said Nicolas guardian of his [Nicolas`, see below] children....”
  10. Minor in 1607 RP 3/116 (1608): “Nicolas Romeril, guardian of his three [under-aged] children, in right of Elizabeth Le Bailly, their mother, of one part, and Jean Romeril, eldest son, of another part, of the inheritance of Elizabeth Le Bailly, daughter of Thomas and of Mabel, his wife, daughter of Edouard de Carteret. The 1st part to Jean, eldest son; the 2nd to Thomas Romeril; the 3rd to Edouard Romeril and the 4th to Magdeleine Romeril...”
  11. CH 8/- (1621): Edouard Romeril had, in 1621, land in St Lawrence
  12. RP 2/362 (1609): “Daniel Dumaresq, having right of Thomas Touzel and of Judith, his wife, daughter of Edouard Romeril...”
  13. CH (1590): “Nicolas Romeril, eldest son of Edouard Romeril and of Guillemine, his wife, daughter of Jean Payn, sued by Thomas Romeril and his `parchoniers` [joint-heirs, plural], children of Guillemine, to bring forward a summary of her assets [with a view to dividing them]”. Thomas Romeril was the Prévôt of the Fief ès Debenaires, in 1620
  14. Her 1st cousin: Généalogie de la Famille Ahier, op. cit. Also Cour de Câtel 11 (1571)
  15. Likely placement
  16. Possible placement. Her name and marriage is mentioned in ABSJ, V, 247
  17. Possible placement
  18. RP 2/326 (1608): “Jean Jacques sold to Thomas Romeril, fils Jean, a small house in the parish of St Helier, on the Fief Bisson...”
  19. He was one of the two Thomas Romerils who might have been the bridegroom. The other was Thomas Romeril, son of Edouard, (above)
  20. Magdeleine Le Gallais had a brother named Jean: RP 2/292 (1608): “Thomas Romeril and Magdeleine, daughter of Toussaint Le Gallais sold to Jean Le Gallais, her elder brother ....”
