Descendants of John Rycardes
TreeIcon.png


This tree was compiled in 2014 from information provided by two researchers with distant connections to the Ricard family in Jersey. Both researchers suggested that some of the information they provided should be treated ‘with considerable suspicion’. The two sets of data contained some conflicting information and we have tried to determine the most likely family links. Although we have been unable to check the American ancestries in any detail, they are probably correct.

The accompanying history shows that two Ricard brothers emigrated to the United States where both were killed by Indians.

Few records have been found for the family in Jersey (those names which do appear have been noted) and the various spellings of the name over a small number of generations is a matter for concern. Some of the dates of birth are highly suspicious. Some which were impossible have not been shown at all.

Nevertheless, the tree is presented for information and we would be pleased to hear from anyone with supporting data. If nothing else it is an illustration that no family tree published online should be taken at face value and all data should be cross-checked against other records. It also illustrates the much greater confidence which Jerripedia editors have in other trees on the site which are not accompanied by warnings like this one.

There is a particular problem with Noel at generation 3 and his son Noel at generation 4. The dates just do not fit. The marriage of Noel to Jeanne Crerice is in the St Brelade baptism register. There is no record of a marriage of a Noel to Jeanne Le Marquand. Noel and Jeanne Le Marquand did exist , because there is a record of her death in 1652, but how they fit into this tree is open to conjecture. It seems most likely that Noel (generation 3) was the father of Noel (generation 5), and there is a strong likelihood that the dates for Noel at generation 4 are wrong and that he is the same person as the generation 3 Noel shown as his father.

That would make Jeanne Crerice his first wife. She died in 1645, possibly when the later Noel was born. Jeanne Le Marquand would then be a second wife, married in 1651 and the mother of Jean born the same year

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 www.jerripediabmd.net. 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.
