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.

Notes and references

  1. Fouageur of Trinity, 1579-82. For his probable parentage, see Descendants of Jean Alexandre - 4 The Christian name Leonard was comparatively rare in Jersey, at this time. In fact, he was the only Leonard Alexandre. As such, he did not need distinguishing from any namesake, in legal documents, by the addition of a father`s name. This does not, however, help the genealogist! Leonard, in common with Regnauld Alexandre and his son Richard, of the above family, faced difficulties with the then-affluent Trinity Le Boutilliers. In 1573 he had bought part of the inheritance of François Le Boutillier, son of Collas. By 1585 Jean Le Boutillier son of Philippe had acquired "all or part of the inheritance" of Leonard. This was very possibly the same Jean Le Boutillier snr, son of Philippe who, in 1607 was purchasing assets from Richard Alexandre- R.P. 2/132. Regnauld, Leonard and Richard Alexandre were not the only Alexandres entangled at that time with the Le Boutilliers. On the 22nd September 1597, before the Cour d`Héritage, there appeared on the same day, before the same court, featuring on the same page of the court rolls as Leonard Alexandre, Servais Alexandre. Servais had sold part of his inheritance to Philippe Le Boutillier fils Jean. Leonard had sold, as above, to Jean Le Boutillier fils Philippe, what was, in this new action, clearly stated as "part" of his inheritance. What had given rise to the 1597 action was that the Le Boutilliers had apparently conducted these purchases, "whether of land or rentes" without involving Gilles Lemprière, Seigneur du Fieu Noble de la Trinité, on whose fief the Alexandre land was situated. It would seem likely that these later transactions involving Alexandres and Le Boutilliers were the result of an earlier dispute, probably with regard to a shared inheritance that had been unsatisfactorily divided. The dispute probably arose in Regnauld Alexandre`s generation, being continued-or resolved in the only way possible-by what seem increasingly likely to have been his three sons
  2. RP 2/343 (1609) La maison et messuage qui furent à Leonard Alexandre et à Jeanne, sa femme
  3. Mentioned as having died by 1615, at his daughter Marie's wedding. Philippe is mentioned as the son of Leonard in several legal documents, such as RP 2/285 (1608)
  4. RP 3/33 (1609)
  5. Fouageur of Trinity, 1630. His Christian name was also that used by the descendants of Jean Alexandre of Trinity (q.v.), above. The property of Regnauld`s branch of the Trinity Alexandres was that now called Beaulieu in the Vingtaine of Rozel. The house was largely rebuilt in the early 19th century
  6. The 1623 Trinity marriage entry`s surname of the bride is unclear. Deeds, however, clarify that it is Filleul and also give her parentage
  7. RP 7/142 (1625). Regnauld and his wife were still living in 1651: RP 14/376 (1651): Regnauld Alexandre fils Philippe et Magdaleine Filleul, sa femme constitueront Josué Alexandre, leur fils, leur procureur"
  8. Josué, at the time of making his will of personalty, dated 23 September 1691, had only one surviving son, who had thus no need of being named, by whom Josué had an elder grandson, to whom he left his bed. Josué's son, Clément, had such a family. This is important as it establishes that his son Jean had predeceased him and was not the Jean Alexandre who married in 1704 Jeanne [Le] Gallais, going on to father with her a family in the south of Trinity. This latter Jean was, in fact, a part of the Grouville family Alexandre, which had settled in the mid-17th century in the adjoining Mont au Prêtre, St Helier, as attested by his children`s godparents` names. This quite distinct family was represented in the mid-19th century by the heirs of Jean Le Breton and Betty Alexandre, his wife
  9. of Les Vaux, St Martin
  10. Philippe Le Cornu, s of Philippe, s of Isaac lived in the vicinity of St Ouen's church. His land lay partly on the Fief Haubert and partly on that of St Hilaire
  11. Grandparents of Abraham de Gruchy, Merchant and Founder of A de Gruchy and Company
  12. Master Mariner, privateer captain and merchant. He commanded between 1756 and 1758 the privateers Union and Revenge. A ship he owned in his own right is recorded as arriving in 1757 from Southampton with a cargo of barley - J. Jean Jersey Sailing Ships,125. John Jean, in the latter work on pages 35 and 125, records Alexandre as a privateer captain 1756-1763, supplying the dates of that particular war, rather than of Alexandre's career, as the latter died, perhaps from injuries received in action, in 1758. His Letter of Marque, one of the earliest surviving in Jersey, is dated 4 June 1756 and is reproduced in Saunders' Jersey in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
  13. Of Bloomfield, son of Jean Alexandre, (her cousin)
  14. Godparents were Josué Alexandre, "Grand-Père" and Marie Messervy "Grande-Mère"
  15. She m 2 Hugh Dupont of Vieux Ménage, Dénonciateur of the Royal Court, 1785-90
  16. The sale of Susanne`s paternal property is recorded in RP 89/167 (1799) Susanne Alexandre fille et seule héritière de feu Me Charles Alexandre and femme de Mons Hugh Dupont bailla...une maison [Beaulieu]...present Mse Susanne Le Gros, veuve en premières noces dudit Me Charles Alexandre. Fields that were named in the contract include Les Parquets and Le Clos à Brébis. The price of the property was 44 Quartiers 3 cabots in wheat rente. The purchaser, Philippe Du Pont, brother of Hugh, then sold the property in 1800 to Elie Stark fils Jean, who in his turn sold it in 1832 to Edmond Le Cornu junr., Gent., who sold it in 1834 to his brother-in-law, George [Philippe] Le Brun, in which family it still remains. For many years, between the remarriage of Susanne Le Gros, widow of the last Charles Alexandre, and 1834, `Beaulieu` will have been either let or unoccupied, as a contract in the possession of the Le Brun family mentions it as being in a ruinous state, necessitating considerable repairs and rebuilding. Susanne Alexandre and Hugh Dupont had issue Susanne, who married George Nicolle. He is shown as the owner (in right of his wife) of Vieux Ménage, St Saviour, on Godfray's Map of Jersey, (1848). Their initials and date: "GNC SDP 1826" are engraved on this property. Other children were Anne Dupont (1798- ) and Sophie Rachel (1800- ), who married Philippe Le Ruez of Les Ruettes, St John, (now an Arthur property), where Sophie Rachel`s herb garden can still be seen
  17. Settled in St Saviour
  18. Of Longfields, Rozel
  19. The Will of her sister Jeanne, widow of Jean Le Boeuf, dated 7/9/1844, when she was aged 86, and proved 1/10/1844, mentions Susanne as still living. A burial in the name of "Susanne Alexandre" in St Saviour, where she lived, "aged 68", does, however, seem to match her age
  20. Of Don Street and Belmont Road, with a property at Commercial Buildings; Builder and Builders' merchant. Their Don Street home, that had the builder`s yard behind it, is now called Westaway Chambers. Hidden now by the words "Westaway Chambers", is an engraved stone bearing the Westaways` initials: "?NW : AALX" with a date. They were the parents of Julia Westaway (1820-1901), philanthropist and founder of Le Don Westaway and of John Nathaniel Westaway (1812-1870) Merchant and Seigneur of the Fief ès Débénaires. He died in 1870 with the loss of the Normandy, declining a life-boat seat while women and children were still aboard. His monument overlooks St Helier harbour, at the foot of Mount Bingham
  21. Parents of Thomas de Gruchy, master mariner and privateer owner, 1793-1825
  22. RP 33/119 (1723) reads: Jean Alexandre fils puiné de Clément Alexandre et de Jeanne Le Cornu, sa femme, héritier en partie à la succession collateralle de Jeanne Alexandre, sa soeur deffunte, bailla ...à Josué Alexandre, fils ainé... of Bloomfield, Rozel
  23. Buried as "Marie" Cabot, widow of Jean Alexandre--a clerical error
  24. Of Rozel Vingtaine
  25. Initials and date engraved at Bloomfield, Victoria Village: "CALX 1820". A case before the CH (1795) established that Charles was the elder son of Jean Alexandre and Anne Le Maistre, with younger siblings Jean and Philippe
  26. Buried as femme de Charles Alexandre
  27. Privateer captain and Merchant
  28. Buried as Me Charles Alexandre junr. A Trinity memorial records his age as 23 ans
  29. Procureur du Bien Public, Trinity, 1816
  30. RP 111/144 names her father and two brothers, Pierre and Matthieu
  31. 1851 Census, Trinity: Solicitor`s clerk and landed proprietor" (1872)
  32. Merchant (1872)
  33. Deputy Inspector-General, Medical Department, Natal, South Africa
  34. Lieutenant de Cavalerie Polonaise. Two memorial inscriptions at Trinity feature members of this immediate Alexandre family, including that of Jeanne Marie, showing her husband`s armorial bearings
  35. Master mariner and privateer owner
  36. Of Le Clos Durell, Trinity
  37. RP 93/111 show Jean, who was alive in 1800, to have died by 1801. He had settled in St Helier and is likely to have been the Jean, a Charles Robin and Company Master Mariner, (-1790-2-)
  38. Lived in St Saviour 1789-96, and then in Augrès, Trinity; Serjeant in the Militia (1815)
  39. Sister of Abraham de Gruchy, above
  40. Farmer of 20 acres, 1851. The Alexandre seafaring tradition continued in the Blampied family. Of Charles and Elizabeth`s five sons, four were mariners, two of whom were masters. These included their son, Jean Blampied, who was a Master Mariner from the tender age of 14, if we are to believe the UK & Ireland Masters` and Mates` Certificates, which obligingly provide his year of birth, 1819. Jean`s nephew, Captain Frederick Alexandre Blampied (1858-1900) had the misfortune to hit rocks off La Corbière in 1900, when master of the Rossgull. He died in the shipwreck
  41. Master mariner
  42. Master Mariner (1821-33) and Shipowner, as "Alexandre and Company", engaged in the carrying trade for the Canadian cod fisheries. He and his ship were lost on a voyage from Pernambuco to Newfoundland, 1833, with the entire crew (Jersey Shipping Register, 1835)
  43. She married secondly, Jean Hacquoil
  44. Living 1858; Mariner
  45. Master mariner 1858-68-
  46. This marriage supplied from her family`s information
  47. This marriage supplied from family information, as are details of William John Alexandre`s family in Australia
  48. Settled at Castlemaine, Victoria
  49. Of Mont à L`Abbé, Jersey, Farmer. His widow was declared bankrupt, 15 September 1851
  50. Currier
  51. All the children of Jean Alexandre and Marie Coutanche were adversely affected by their parents` insolvency. Elizabeth is mentioned in the Décret (1851)
  52. Described in bankruptcy hearings as "fils ainé". He appears to have left the Island not long afterwards
  53. His memorial inscription, St Helier, records that he was "52 years a resident of the U.S.A. and who served with active interest throughout the Civil War, 1861-1866; Died at St Helier" on a visit to his native Island
  54. 1851 Census, Grouville: Landed Proprietor and Farmer at Profonde Arène, Les Fonds de Longueville
  55. Master Mariner (-1833-) and Shipowner. Following the death at sea of his brother Philippe, he continued the latter`s "Alexandre and Company". His first vessel was the 93 ton schooner, Alexander, built for him by Deslandes. Two years afterwards, he went into partnership with John Carré, as "Carré and Alexandre" (1835-1852), Shipowners, owning a total of eight vessels in the carrying trade associated with Gaspé and Newfoundland. In retirement, he lived at Rouge Bouillon and was a Captain RJM. A benefactor of La Société Jersiaise, he presented them with an ancient, engraved, Egyptian marble pillar, the procurement of which was the source of much debate within the family! For details as to his business character, see [Islanders/Trade and Commerce/Abraham de Gruchy]. He and his immediate family were buried at Mont à L`Abbé Cemetery
  56. Charles junr. had been brought up to the sea. He was awarded his First Mate`s Certificate on the 23/5/1854, but died three years later, at Weymouth
  57. He was probably the "enfant de Philippe Alexandre" buried 15/7/1807, Trinity
  58. Philippe Alexandre m 3 (1823, Tr) Magdeleine Rachel Dorey
  59. Living 1841-51 in Grouville with her sister and brother-in-law, Philippe Journeaux
  60. Purchased from his maternal kinsman, Philippe Cabot, fils Jean, R.P.48/58 (1763), with two fields, R.P.47/214 (1763), formerly belonging to the vendor`s uncle, another Philippe Cabot. This Philippe Alexandre was in 1769 both Farmer and Shoemaker [Ann. Bull. Soc. Jers. X111, 69]. On the 28/9/1769, Alexandre was among those supporting Thomas James Gruchy and other leaders of the Trinity Revolt. This had arisen from discontent and suspicion of the small, inter-related `junta,` led by the Lemprières, that virtually ruled over the Island at this time. Alleged manipulation of corn prices had been a `last straw`. At a meeting of the Royal Court, 25/1/1770, orders were given for the arrest of the ringleaders, amongst whom he was named and duly arrested, although little actually came of it, due to the influence of those appointed to examine the populace`s various grievances, which led to reform
  61. There is engraved at Le Hurel: "PAL.ERN 1764"
  62. Settled in St Laurence, 1782, at Coin Hâtain. The Marriage register mentions that his wife was of St Laurence and that Philippe was of Trinity
  63. Named after Moise de Ste Croix, his godfather. His age on death (in St Mary) is given in that parish`s register as "69 ans 7 mois". He was described in the 1861 census as "unmarried"
  64. A godfather was Aaron de Ste Croix
  65. Lived in St Helier. His Will of Personalty is dated 20/2/1801 and proved on the 15/12/1810. Elizabeth Hocquard is called "ma bien aimée épouse"
  66. Veuve Jean
  67. Elizabeth`s St Helier christening names her godfather as the celebrated merchant Nicolas Fiott, so her father may well have been employed by him, perhaps as an agent or Master
  68. Buried as "Sally Alexandre, femme Charles Sohier
  69. Charles Sohier had as godparents on the 14th December 1788, his eldest brother, "Pierre Sohier junior" and Marie Salmon, who married in 1790. The godparents featured in the next generation, that of Charles and Sara`s children (Sohier), are worthy of note in order to strengthen the case for both of the Alexandre/Sohier marriage placements. Amongst them were those of Jane (sic) in 1811: Mse Douce Gaudin (widow of the 1st cousin of Sara`s late father, Jean Alexandre); those of Sally in 1818: "Me Jean Alexandre, Oncle, et Mse Marie Sohier" and the godmother of Julie Jane Sohier in 1820: Jeanne Elizabeth Hocquard, (a member of her late grandmother`s family)
  70. Jean was "Out of the Island"-- 1815 Military Census. On his marriage to Marie Sohier, he is described as "Mons", this being a rank in Jersey that denotes some wealth or position. His son James` 1842 marriage entry states that Jean (John) was [had been] an "Ecrivain", solicitor, which agrees with this rank. Regrettably, in later years, the family experienced a dramatic downturn in fortune. Jean does not feature in either the 1841 or 1851 censuses, so had probably died by then. In that of 1851, St Helier, Marie Sohier was a widow
  71. Marie`s godparents were "Pierre Sohier, grand-père et Marie Salmon, grande-mère"
  72. Elizabeth Sohier, "tante" was one of the godparents of Jean Alexandre
  73. Ann Elizabeth was in 1851 assisting her aunt, Jane Sohier, a Lodging House Keeper, of 17, Bond Street, and was herself in 1871 a Lodging House Keeper, with Sohier cousins, at Val Plaisant. She was unmarried
  74. Of Francis Street, St Helier, then of 15, Old St John`s Road, Baker
  75. Present at his father's death, 1864
  76. Emigrated to Australia, 1886
  77. Emigrated to Australia, 1886
  78. The two William Alexandres, here and above, apart from their 11 month age gap, are distinguishable by their mothers' names, Marie and Elizabeth, being given in their respective birth records. Both mothers were in 1851 General Servants, perhaps working with or for their Sohier relatives, in their lodging house
  79. Settled in St Helier. His daughter Nancy`s second marriage entry (1853), gives his occupation as Ropemaker
  80. Her age on death in St Helier is given as "80 ans 9 mois"
  81. Rachel`s sister, Nancy Alexandre, was a godparent in 1821 of her son, John Philips. In 1834, on the christening of her son, Charles Philips, Nancy was again a godparent, albeit more formally described as "Anne" Alexandre, together with her husband, Thomas Malcott (represented by John Philips)
  82. Their marriage entry, St Saviour, gives her parish as Trinity, his as St Saviour. She was buried in St Helier, predeceasing her husband, who later remarried
  83. He was, in 1815, "en mer", (Military Census). He was doubtless at this date a Mariner
  84. Issue: Jenny Rachel Chevalier (1820-1823)
  85. François was of Petite Augrès, Trinity, in 1851. A Constable's Officer in 1841, he was later a Housebuilder, of Town Mills, St Helier
  86. Cooper
  87. Elie Alexandre of Oak Shade Lodge, Petite Augrès, was a Shoemaker in 1861
  88. Shoemaker, living at home, 1861-- An Elie Alexandre (Elie or his father) of Petite Augrès was a Trinity ratepayer, 1878
  89. Dressmaker, 1861-81, living at home, (in 1881, alone), unmarried. Note: Many of this family varied, sometimes considerably, their ages as given in censuses!
  90. Dressmaker, 1861-71, living at home
  91. Perhaps left the Island by 1871, no burial having yet been discovered
  92. Philippe was of Honduras House, 16, Windsor Road, St Helier. He was still living in 1883
  93. Of Susanna Cottage, Ann Street, St Helier, in 1870; also Bell-hanger. He was latterly of 9, Val Plaisant
  94. Note: Most of the details of Jean`s descendants have been supplied by his family to a previous researcher, Mrs M.L. Backhurst, who has also worked on his immediate family
  95. Captain employed by the Indo-China Steam Navigation Company in 1925; Master S.S. Waishing
  96. They lived at 9, Val Plaisant, St Helier
  97. Family source
  98. Of 38, Halkett Place, St Helier
  99. Her burial entry, St Helier, 9/2/1850, gave her age as "76 ans 1 mois." She was baptised 1/1/1775 (Trinity) and was thus born in 1774. To be, however, "76" on death, she must have been presented in baptism aged between 11 months and 1 year, which was frequently the case. Her burial entry also records that her two husbands, both of whom were St Helier men, were also Master Mariners
  100. R.P.35/80 (1727) "Rachel Alexandre, fille puinée de feu Clément Alexandre et de deffunte Jeanne Le Cornu, sa femme, et femme de Jean Rouet..."
  101. R.P.11/40 (1636) "Noel Le Vavasseur dit Durell sells a house [etc.] to Jean Alexandre fils Philippe." A condition of the sale was that the vendor would train "the son" of the purchaser in the trade of a Tailor. The only son of Jean Alexandre was Amice. Jean Alexandre fils Philippe and his younger siblings can be placed within this genealogy by the following: R.P. 14/221 (1649): "Jean Alexandre fils puinée de Philippe Alexandre et de Collette Bellée, sa femme d`une partie, et Regnauld Alexandre, fils ainé dudit Philippe Alexandre et de Collette Bellée, d`autre..Elizabeth Alexandre femme de Jean Le Tubelin, Marie Alexandre femme d`Elie Le Maistre et Jeanne Alexandre femme de Philippe Vibert..filles dudit Philippe Alexandre et de Collette, sa femme"
  102. He was trained as a Tailor, see above. In 1669, he sold his house in St Saviour, "contrée de Maufang," to Thomas Ahier (R.P.19/115), and remained in St Martin, where he had lived for at least twelve years, probably since his marriage
  103. Anne Le Maistre was also co-h of her brother, Philippe: R.P.15/159 (1654), which mentions that Anne was already married to Amice Alexandre at this date
  104. Grandparents of Philippe Le Gallais, Solicitor, latterly of La Moye, Jurat
  105. R.P.33/106 (1723) "Rachel de Ste Croix tutrice of Marie Alexandre, third daughter of the late Jean Alexandre sells to Rachel Alexandre, elder daughter and principal heiress of the said defunct and wife of Philippe Maret….Jeanne Alexandre, second daughter of the late Jean Alexandre fils Amice and wife of Jean Le Gallais…." Also, R.P.38/131 (1736) "Marie Alexandre fille Jean, fils Amice, et femme de Jean Hébert demeurant en la ville de Canterbury..."
  106. R.P.27/100 (1700)
  107. Probable daughter
  108. A possible younger sibling of Regnauld, Jean, Elizabeth, Jeanne and Marie was M[arguerite] Alexandre m (1620, St Mt) Jean Filleul. If so, she is likely to have died before the partage of 1657, R.P.15/444, probably without surviving issue
