Notes and references

  1. Marriage record not found
  2. The first two generations of this family, as donated and shown, cannot be confirmed from Jersey church records. The Island Land Registry, at the Jersey Archive, needs to be consulted. It should be noted that Huguenot origins are frequently assumed for families bearing Jersey surnames, especially when their members are living outside the Island. The Jeunes may well be of indigenous Jersey stock, whose 17th century forbears merely need further research at the above mentioned Land Registry
  3. Her godparents were: Francois Jeune and Rachel de Carteret, Grandfather and Grandmother
  4. Her godparents were: Francois Jeune and Jeanne de Carteret, Grandfather and Grand-Aunt
  5. Godparents: Richard de Carteret and Jeanne, his sister, wife of Francois Bailhache
  6. Of West View Mont Les Vaux, St Aubin, Miller. G R Balleine writes in A Biographical Dictionary of Jersey, "In the lane off Mont Les Vaux, St Aubin, is a ruined house bearing the inscription FI ♥♥ MC 1776, the initials of the Bishop`s grandparents." Balleine also mentions that the grandparents were, in the Island, early converts to Methodism and that Francois Jeune, "furnished a shed in his yard as a Methodist meeting place, a shed often wrecked by the local roughs. He and his wife went later as Methodist missionaries to the French-speaking slaves in Grenada, Windward Islands." Francois Jeune was back in the Channel Islands in 1799, his will made in Guernsey on 12 December that year. It was proved nine months later, on 15 September 1800. He left his wife, Marie-Louise Carcos, the interest on money held in Bank of England funds, with the reversion, on her death, to be vested in his second son, Daniel George Jeune, who was, at the time , still a boy. The remainder of his goods were to be divided between his children, whom he named as Francois Jeune, the elder son; Daniel Jeune (sic), the second son; Marie Jeune, wife of Edouard Le Feuvre and Francoise Jeune, who was at the time unmarried. The Jean Jeune born into the family in 1793 will presumably have died in the meantime: D/Y/A/16/25, at the Jersey Archive
  7. Jean Carcos was the nephew of the Rev Rudolph Hue, son of the Seigneur of Langronne, Normandy. Hue, having come to Jersey as a result of religious persecution in France, was Rector of St Brelade
  8. Judith was the daughter of another god-fearing Huguenot minister, the Rev Jean Cartault, Rector of St Brelade, whose brother Thomas, was Rector of Trinity. Judith`s mother was Sarah Poingdestre, daughter of Jean, Seigneur of the Fief ès Poingdestres. The influence of these godly families is notable among their descendants in female lines. Marie Louise Carcos, wife of Francois Jeune, was the grandmother of Francois Jeune, Bishop of Peterborough. Another sister, Anne Carcos, married James Gallichan of St Peter. Their grandson was the Reverend James Gallichan. A third sister, Esther Carcos, wife of George Le Feuvre of St Brelade, was the grandmother of Esther Brine, whose husband was Philippe Le Maistre of the Ropewalk, St Aubin. All four of their sons were clergymen: J B Payne, An Armorial of Jersey, 226
  9. Miller, latterly of the Town Mills. An ardent Methodist, Francois was sentenced in 1800 to eight days solitary confinement on bread and water for refusing to do Militia drill on Sunday: ibid, 334
  10. Elizabeth Le Capelain`s thoughtful Will, mirrors that of her late husband [D/Y/A/23/82, proved in 1836]. She did, though, leave to her daughter-in-law, Margaret, the portrait of her son, Margaret`s husband, Francois Jeune. The Will otherwise made particular provision for her youngest son, Frederick Augustus Jeune, his sister Henrietta Jeune and for the children of the testatrix`s daughter Amelia, wife of James Thoume of Guernsey. Other than appointing her son, the Revd. Francois Jeune, Principal of Pembroke College, Oxford, joint executor, her remaining children are not specifically named, any more than they were in her late husband`s Will: D/Y/A/27/129
  11. Rector of St Helier and Dean of Jersey, 1838-1843; Rector of Taynton, Gloucestershire, 1844; Principal of Pembroke College, Oxford, 1851, Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University, 1858-1862. Dean of Lincoln 1864, Bishop of Peterborough, 1864-1868

  18. Elizabeth, fille de Francois Jeune [et] Elizabeth Le Capelain, sa femme. Her christening, like those of her brothers William Daniel, William and Edward, does not feature in the Anglican register, and may have been a little earlier than shown
  19. "Frederick (otherwise known as Edward) Augustus Jeune" [National Probate Calendar, 1891] died on 31st March 1856 at Darjeeling, India. He was a Lieutenant, 25th Regiment, Bengal Native Infantry. He was, in absentia, godfather in 1843 of his nephew, the future Lord St Helier
