Le Geyt 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.

  14. OV; Captain RJMA. A memorial inscription in St Saviour`s churchyard records his death (in Omaha) in the United States of America and describes him as "le dernier de sa famille." The St Saviour Register records his death in Omaha, 20/11/1894, but adds that [his remains] were "buried in this cemetery on the 1st May 1895"

It was later owned by Pierre`s nephew, Jean Le Geyt, so Pierre probably did die without surviving issue, as Messervy thought: ABSJ V, 247. Today "Le Geyt Flats" occupy the site
  23. See footnotes to Descendants of Raulet Le Geyt - 2
  24. "1589" has probably been read as "1539" being the date before which Jean`s parents were married
