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

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.

Notes and references

  1. Described on marriage as “son of Daniel, of the parish of Trinity.” Mr Thomas Gallichan was in 1709 and 1710 one of the principal inhabitants of St Martin, whose signature can be seen, with others of the parish assembly, at the foot of two resolutions, reproduced within the back cover of Blackstone & Le Quesne (ed.), St Martin, Jersey, The Story of an Island Parish, (Chichester, Phillimore & Co., 1999). He was buried in 1725, in St Martin
  2. Described, on burial, as “He [his death] was regretted by all his relatives and friends.” On marriage, he was called “Thomas Gallichan, fils Thomas, of St Martin”
  3. Godparents: Me Thomas Gallichan snr and Rachel Machon
  4. Seigneur of Quetivel. They had issue three sons: Thomas (1710), whose godparents were “Mr Thomas Gallichan and Mse Anne Nicolle his wife, the child`s grandfather and grandmother; Abraham (1712) and Francois (1715). The latter was missed in J.B. Payne (ed.) An Armorial of Jersey, 225
  5. They married in Grouville, the wedding being also recorded that day in St Martin
  6. Thomas' godparents were Mr Thomas Gallichan, grandfather, and Mse Marie Gallichan, wife of Mons. Elie Le Maistre
  7. Lieutenant-Colonel in the Militia; Denonciateur of the Royal Court, 1782-1791; Deputy-Viscount, 1791-1796. The Revd. J.A. Messervy, in his supplementary list of Vicomtes [Viscounts, being Sheriffs] of Jersey, in ABSJ, VII, 51, mentions that Thomas Gallichan was Deputy-Viscount of Jersey, 1791-1796, the year of his death. He had been, he wrote, “in 1781, Captain of a company of the Regiment du Nord, and was, in 1794, Lieutenant-Colonel of this Regiment”. He will therefore have been serving at the time of the Battle of Jersey (1781). The following year, on 20th October 1782, he was one of two candidates for the office of Constable [Mayor] of St Martin. He had gained a majority of votes, but his opponent, Philippe Collas, who was incidentally his next door neighbour and had previously served six years as Constable, claimed that there had been electoral irregularities, and appealed against the result. Gallichan counter-claimed. On 10 December, the Royal Court ruled in Gallichan`s favour. However, Collas appealed then to the Privy Council! For two years, the parish was thus without a constable, from October 1782 until 27th August 1784. The Council finally decided in favour of Collas. It should be noted that elections at this period in time were based upon party politics, and not upon personalities: ABSJ, VI, 144-5. He was a Churchwarden of St Martin. From his tenure of the office of Denonciateur of the Royal Court, he will probably have been a Solicitor
  8. Of Anneville; Constable of St Martin, 1811-1814; 1825-1834
  9. Lieutenant in the Militia (1806-1815). He then trained for the ministry, being ordained in the Anglican Church in about 1818: Vicar of St Martin; Chaplain of the Jersey General Hospital, 1830-1836. He was named after his godfather, William Charles Lempriere, Seigneur of Rosel
  10. Charles Gallichan`s property, on the corner opposite the Collas`s Maison de St Martin, facing St Martin`s Church, bears his surname and initial, “C. Gallichan” on Hugh Godfray`s Map of Jersey, (1849). The land accompanying this substantial property was, in 1871, 40 vergées. Charles, however, in common with most of his family, was evidently dogged by ill-health (tuberculosis?). He, his mother and spinster aunt, Anne Gallichan, were thus living away from their property in Summerland Place, St Helier, in 1841: St Helier census. He established Philip Godfray his procureur in 1848, when of an age to do so: Procurations 32/183. His house and land was then sold to George Sohier of St Martin in 1855: L/C/112/B12/18, at the Jersey Archive. He died in 1857
  11. Merchant and shipowner
  12. Her Will , proved in 1880, is at the Jersey Archive. Her godparents had been her father and Mse Francoise Gaudin, his mother
  13. Christened as Sara, “daughter of Mr Jean Gallichan, fils Thomas, and Sara de Rue, his wife.” Her godparents were Philippe de Rue and his sister, Susanne de Rue
  14. Godparents were Mr Josue Le Quesne of St John and Mse Anne Gallichan, his wife
  15. Perrin Gallichan was his godfather. The Christian name Vincent was used, at this time, by the Gruchy family. Vincent`s brother Jean, had as godparents Francois Gruchy and his sister, Jeanne
