Descendants of Etienne La Cloche


This tree was added to the site in 2012, enlarged in 2014 and reviewed in 2019. Unless stated otherwise, the reviewed and updated tree is based upon that shown for La Cloche in The Armorial of Jersey. This latter work, however, contained few dates but many of these have been added in 2021 and 2022 reviews. Early dates are, as with those of other trees, should be treated as approximate

La Cloche family page and links to other trees

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. Extente (1528), 26: "The heires of Stevyn laclosche [owing to the Crown] 12 quartiers 4 capons [for the] Mylle Malass" [Mélèches]. It is stated in The Armorial of Jersey, no doubt with accuracy, that the La Cloche family owned in the 16th century all the mills in Vallée des Vaux
  2. In the ABSJ 6, 80, the Rev J A Messervy, in his genealogy of the Falle family, corrects one of several errors in Payne's Armorial of Jersey, relating to the La Cloche genealogy. He describes Mabel Falle`s husband as "Thomelin", Thomelin being the diminutive of Thomas. He is described as "père d`Etienne", who is not in this generation, otherwise known. Messervy`s personal copy of the Armorial also features this amendment
  3. Cour d`Héritage, Volume 3 (1527)
  4. Blanche Le Bastard, Dame de La Rondiole
  5. Extente of Jersey (1607), 60: "Edward La Cloche, fils Etienne, fils Thomelin" [owing the Crown] the 12 quartiers owed in 1528 by the heirs of "Stevyn laclosche" for the Mill of Mélèches; a further entry, [ibid 66] mentions Edouard owing the Crown the four annual capons in discharge of Etienne La Cloche [1528]. He also owed a total of 8½ cabots "in right of his mother, the daughter of Clement Bastard". He was a Captain in the Militia and Centenier of St Helier, 1597 (ABSJ 8, 86)
  6. Wrongly stated in J.B. Payne, An Armorial of Jersey, 189, as being "of Surville"
  7. Jurat, 1665-1689. As Jean de La Cloche; Colonel in the Militia. Philip Stevens, in his article entitled Philip Dumaresq, Seigneur of Samarès in ABSJ Vol 31 Pt 1 (2013), 161, writes: "Charles de Carteret [who had married the Dame de La Trinité] had used his influence with Lanier [Governor of Jersey] to get [his wife`s uncle-by-marriage] one La Cloche a colonelcy in the militia. [Philip] Dumaresq could not think of a fitter person than La Cloche." However, Dumaresq`s English brother-in-law, William Trumbull, described this same Jean La Cloche "in 1677 as so obscure before becoming Jurat [in 1665], `having never had any businesse but att his Mill, which occupation he retaines still, though something to the scandal of his office`" La Cloche, who at about this time started calling himself de la Cloche, was a clergyman`s son and a close cousin of the Seigneur of Longueville. The Island`s historical and social economic structures have always been, and remain, a mystery to English visitors and settlers, alike
  8. Captain in the Army. Served with the Army in the Low Countries, where he met his future wife. He was stationed in 1696 at Maastricht. The portraits of Jean (John) and his wife, Maria, survive: see pictures, La Cloche Family page
  9. Matthieu La Cloche owned in 1746 the property called De La Rocque in the "paroisse", as opposed to "La Ville", of St Helier
  10. Godparents: Me Philippe Le Breton, fils Jean, fils Philippe, Oncle et Mse Anne Le Breton, sa soeur, Tante de l'enfant
  11. Rector of Trinity
  12. His was probably the portrait miniature sold by Bonham`s in 2009, showing a young soldier of the Royal Jersey Militia, called La Cloche, with powdered hair. Wigs had become unfashionable during the French Revolutionary Wars, being replaced by powdered hair. Jean would have been of the right age, being twenty-seven years old in 1795

  14. According to The Armorial of Jersey, Philip La Cloche had served in the Royal Navy, as a midshipman
  15. Clergyman

  24. Her portrait is shown on the La Cloche Family page
  25. Of Simon Place, St Helier, Baker, employing in 1851, six men. The couple had three sons and one surviving daughter, Harriet Julia Snell, wife of Jonathan Robert Ward, Proprietor. The elder son was Francis William Snell (1848- ), OV, Lieutenant-Colonel, Bombay Staff Corps and then of the Bombay Political Department (1895). He was then Administrator of Rajpipla and Porbandar States and Political Agent in Cutch. He retired to Kensington. The second son was George Snell, OV, LRCP (Edinburgh), MRCS and LSA (England), MD (Aberdeen), having attended Aberdeen University. He entered the Colonial Medical Service. The third son was the Revd. Frederick La Cloche Snell, OV, Vicar of Pawlett, near Bridgewater, Somerset
  26. Of Exeter
  27. Dr de La Cloche owned the senior branch of the family`s ancestral residence, De La Rocque, in Mont à L`Abbé, St Helier, in the country- "la paroisse". His nephew, the Rev Philip La Cloche, was the owner of the family`s "Town House" comprising numbers 83 and 85 Colomberie. This latter property became in the 20th century, the Ritz Hotel: St Helier Censuses, Almanacs, Directories and information from the late Advocate and Judicial Greffier, Philip Le Couteur
  28. Schoolmaster, living in 1841 in Beresford Street, St Helier, with his mother, Margaret Le Breton, wife Elizabeth, son Thomas, aged 20, and his daughter Eliza. With the family was his newly-wedded son-in-law, Henry Strong, a Barrister-at-Law: St Helier Census 1841. By the 1850s, Thomas had moved to London, with his mother (who died there) and family. He features in the 1861 Census as a Schoolmaster living in Southwark. He retired to Jersey, where he died
  29. Captain, RJMA. He was of De La Rocque House, Trinity Road, St Helier, being a Landowner and Farmer. He (aged 44), his wife Henrietta Jane, and their 7 month old son, John Frederick, were living there with his grandfather, the surgeon Thomas La Cloche, in 1861. Henrietta Jane was, however, described, as was Thomas Philippe, as a grandchild--no doubt the census enumerator baulked at "grand-daughter-in-law"!: St Helier Census. Three photographs of him survive: see La Cloche Family page
  30. Barrister-at-Law (Middle Temple) and formerly of Magdalen Hall, Oxford
  31. Rector of Brampton Abbots, Co. Hereford

  37. Pierre Marett`s marriage to Marguerite La Cloche is largely credited by Robert Hugh Kirk Marett in The Maretts of La Haule (published privately, 1982), 79, with the acceptance of Marett and his immediate family into Jersey society. Pierre inherited from his mother, Susanne Dumaresq, both the Franc Fief in St Brelade, of which he became Seigneur, and the La Haule estate. He was a Jurat from 1675. Marguerite La Cloche`s brass-studded linen chest, called in Jersey a `baheur`, survives in the Marett family. It bears the date 1680 and her initials MDLC: ibid, citing ABSJ (1934), 319
  38. Robert Marett, ibid, 81 and accompanying genealogy, also clarifies the names of Marguerite`s first and third husbands, which corrects these details, as given in The Armorial of Jersey
  39. Author of Journal de Jean Chevalier, published by the Société Jersiaise, being a first-hand account of the Civil War period in Jersey
  40. Benjamin La Cloche was Constable of St Saviour, 1587-1591. In 1600, he became Seigneur of the Fief ès Debenaires.
