Descendants of Jean Mauger


Capt Joshua Mauger

Captain Joshua Mauger of Jersey and Halifax, Nova Scotia; M.P. for Poole, Dorset

This tree, as submitted by a descendant, contained earlier generations taking the tree to Thomas Mauger, of St Ouen, in the mid-17th century. The links given are not supported by baptism registers and we doubt that this branch of the Mauger family had its orgins in St Ouen - more likely in St John. However, we have not been able to take the line any further back with any degree of certainty. We are also puzzled by the absence of any Mauger baptisms in St John after 1842. No baptism record has been found for any of the children at generations five and six. While we are happy that the first five generations as shown here are supported by church records, there must be a question mark over later generational links, although the use of Anley as a second forename for Francis (1896-1954) would be supported by his having an Anley grandmother. There are trees at Ancestry which conflict in earlier generations, and are not supported by church records. [1] The tree below is currently believed to be accurate but needs confirmation from the Jersey Land Registry

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. Josue Mauger, at generation two, was a Jerseyman who made a fortune in Canada and became an MP at Westminster. Philip de Veulle, writing in Francis L M Corbet (ed), A Biographical Dictionary of Jersey, Volume 2, 299, believed he was the son of Josué Mauger and Sara Le Couteur of St John, perhaps because they had a son named Jean at about the right time, 1727, and Joshua was known to have had a brother of this name, whose children were mentioned in his Will. However, the Jean born in 1727 to Josué Mauger and Sara Le Couteur, would have then been married aged thirteen. A. V. Nicolle (1891-1970), the great-great-great-grandson of Jean Mauger, writing in ABSJ (1966), 131, mentions in detail Jean`s brother, Joshua Mauger, but was apparently unaware of his parentage
  2. Master Mariner, then Merchant in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Poole, Dorset, of which Town he was Member of Parliament. He is believed to have been the first Jerseyman elected a Member of Parliament. His approximate date of birth is based upon his age at death in 1788, "aged 63". In his PCC Will, dated 1788 and proved on 30th April 1789, one of two executors he appointed was "Mr Philip Nicholle (sic) of the parish of St John, Island of Jersey, Merchant, who is my nephew in law, (a term referring to the husband of a niece). The principal beneficiaries were "the children of my nieces, who were daughters of my late brother, John Mauger, whether sons or daughters....of Mr Philip Nicolle of the Island of Jersey, and Mr Edward Carrell, Merchant, of the Island of Guernsey, in equal shares"
  3. Master Mariner and Uncle of Josue, with whom he first went to sea
  4. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia
  5. Major-General; Mayor of Southampton, 1795
  6. The couple were godparents in 1769 to Philippe Nicolle junr., the shipowner, and in 1777 to his sister Rachel, children of their daughter Elizabeth, wife of Philippe Nicolle
  7. Described at baptism as being Rachel fille de Jean Mauger, fils Jean, and of Rachel Mauger, his wife." Her godparents were: [translated] "Jean Mauger and Rachel de Carteret, his wife, father and mother of Jean Mauger, father of the said Rachel"
  8. Of Guernsey, Merchant
  9. Godparents: Jean Mauger and Rachel de Carteret
  10. Of Hérupe, St John, Wool Merchant
  11. Godparents: Captain Jean Mauger and Anne Caillet. They married a few months later, in 1745, in St John. Captain Jean Mauger (1721- ) was the child`s maternal uncle
  12. Was this Charles Mauger, who went to Australia, the Constable of the parish, of this name?
