Descendants of Pierre Poingdestre
TreeIcon.png


Although the forename Jean, rather than John, was almost universally used in Jersey from the 12th century until the 18th century, the early Poingdestres are commonly found as Johan, or John. The forenames in this tree researched by La Société Jersiaise (a combination of all three variants), have been left unchanged. The tree shows Jurat John Poingdestre at Generation 3 as Bailiff. However, no confirmation of this role has been found elsewhere, the only Poingdestre to hold the office apparently being Jean Poingdestre, in 1452-52, who is shown at Jurat John Poingdestre at Generation 5 in this tree

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 www.jerripediabmd.net. 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. Jurat, 1367-8. Link from generation 1 subject to doubt

  3. Jurat and Lieut-Bailiff, 1420-1425. Seigneur in part of Dielament, 1413; purchased the Fief Mottier, thereafter called ès Poingdestres, from the widow of Pierre des Augrès, 1419
  4. Jurat, 1450- ; Bailiff, 1452-53. Jean inherited this fief and was also Seigneur, in 1446, of the Fief ès Hormans
  5. Jurat, 1460- ; Bailiff, 1467-1476
  6. Jurat, 1445-1460, who became Bailiff, 1459-1461-
  7. Jurat, 1481-1500; Lieut.-Bailiff, 1484-1492
  8. Ordained priest, September 1500; chaplain in St Saviour
  9. Seigneur du Fief ès Poindestres; eldest surviving son
  10. Ordained Deacon, April 1519
  11. Parentage uncertain
  12. Mrs Messervy, widow of the genealogist, the Revd. J.A. Messervy, had in her Armorial of Jersey Michelle`s father as "Edouard Dumaresq de la Haule"
  13. Of Maufant
  14. Of Vieux Menage, Maufant, St Saviour; fined, in 1609, for diluting cider with a view to its sale: Joan Stevens, Old Jersey Houses, 1, 226
  15. Her second marriage. Her first was in 1570 to Guillaume Dolbel ( -1579), Chef-Sergent of St Saviour: ABSJ, V, 149
  16. Godfather: Jean Herault, Bailiff, who lived nearby at Maufant Manor. In the 1668 Extente, Damian Poingdestre of St Saviour, "son of John, son of Damian, son of Michel" owed the Crown an annual payment of 1 cabot of wheat
  17. C.H. (29/04/1697): Heirs of Damyan Poingdestre and Genette Le Geyt, his wife: Thomas Poingdestre `ainé` and Damyan Poingdestre
  18. Guillaume`s son Jean was described on marriage in 1635, as being of St Saviour, where his father was living in 1606, when he presented a daughter for baptism. However, the father, a younger son, must have lived for a decade or more elsewhere--presumably in a parish without surviving 16th century registers--as the christenings of his evident children have not survived. Pending confirmation from the Jersey Land Registry, their inclusion above and linkages must be regarded as provisional. Godparents do, however, support the placements
  19. Buried in St Saviour as "Rachel, femme Guillaume Poingdestre". Her marriage has not otherwise been found
  20. Settled in St Martin. He was married there as "Jean Poingdestre, fils Guillaume, of St Saviour"
  21. Godparents: "Guillaume Poingdestre, Grandpère [of the child] and Elizabeth, his daughter, wife of Jean Machon of Trinity"
  22. She and her husband were the parents of Jean Dolbel (1619), whose godfather was Jean Poingdestre, fils Michel, who would be Susanne`s uncle, Rachel Dolbel (1620), whose godfather was Jean Poingdestre, fils Jean, who would be Susanne`s first cousin and Guillaume Dolbel (1622), whose godfather was Guillaume Poingdestre of St Saviour, Susanne`s father. She is placed solely upon godparent evidence
  23. Settled at La Chênée, in the Vingtaine of Hérupe, St John, on the property his wife had inherited from the Hamons: Fo. 41; K9: "Short Genealogical Tables" at La Société Jersiaise
  24. Godfather: Helier Romeril, fils Jean
  25. Buried as "Mons. Abraham Poingdestre"
  26. Of La Chênée, Hérupe
  27. Centenier of St John
  28. Of La Chênée, Hérupe
  29. Captain, RJM. Abraham Poingdestre, described as a "Rentier", being one who was of independent means, died in 1861, aged 69 years, 9 months. He was the father-in-law of Edward Charles Malet de Carteret, and said to be the Island`s richest man. This was certainly an exaggeration. However, his inheritance enabled his son-in-law`s decayed and neglected manor house to be repaired and greatly extended
  30. Aged 19 years
  31. Of Cheadle, Staffordshire
  32. Of Les Landes, St Ouen
  33. Godparents: Master Helier Romeril and Mistress Jeanne Poingdestre, his wife
  34. A missing baptismal entry in the St John`s Register, she is named among her parents` five surviving children and heirs: C.H. 28/87 (1737/8), see below
  35. Her 2nd cousin
  36. Engraved at China Quarries Farm, Handois, St Lawrence: "MPD 1715" and near it "RRN", for Rachel Renouf, his wife
  37. Adjutant, West Regiment of Militia; Buried as "Mr Jean Poingdestre senr."
  38. His father`s heir was his eldest daughter, so this Jean will have died without issue
  39. "Me Michel Poingdestre junr." in 1742, when he and Mse Jeanne Aubin, his wife, were godparents of their niece, Jeanne Poingdestre
  40. Constable of St Ouen - 1758-
  41. Godmother of Rachel Payn, her niece
  42. Cour d`Héritage 28/87 (1737/8): Partage among the heirs of Michel Poingdestre and Marguerite Le Sueur: His eldest son Abraham Poingdestre, his second son Michel Poingdestre, Rachel Poingdestre, wife of Pierre Le Brocq, and daughter of his late younger son Jean Poingdestre, Elizabeth Poingdestre [presumably then a widow] and Jeanne Poingdestre [whose christening was omitted in the St John`s Register]
  43. Of La Fontaine: C.H. Livre 28/87
  44. Godfather, in that year, of his niece, Marguerite Poingdestre
  45. Rector of St Ouen, -1459-
  46. Exact placement probable, but uncertain. Monk at Abbey of Mont St Michel; Prior at St Michel au Valle, Guernsey, 1325-1331-
