Dumaresq records in

La Société Jersiaise Library

This is an index from the library catalogue of La Société Jersiaise regarding records relating to the Dumaresq family. These records document one of the most important fall-outs of the impact of the The English Civil War on Jersey. The collection comprises mainly papers relating to a dispute over precedency between the De Carteret and Dumaresq families, which carried on for a quarter of a century after the Restoration, from 1660 to 1684.

This notable and acrimonious feud between Sir Philip De Carteret and Philipe Dumaresq was over Samarès Manor, the Dumaresq’s having had it and the Seigneurial title confiscated during the Civil War, when Dumaresq’s father Henry became a leader on the Parlimentary side. At the Restoration Philip Dumaresq petitioned and did homage to the King, but had to fight for precedency for the Manor and title
