Descendants of Peter Mesny

The early ancestry of the Mesny family shown below is based on handwritten Notes on Pedigree by John William Mesny (a nephew of William Mesny the famous adventurer, 1842-1919) in 1903

The Mesny family settled in Alderney around 400 years ago The first family member named in the notes was Peter Mesny (baptisd in 1700), a clergyman. His son Jacques was a Master in the Royal Navy. Guillaume Mesny (1787-1835) was an architect and builder - he was employed in building the great breakwater of Cherbourg, which is still standing today. William Mesny (1812-1885) served in the Royal Militia, and later became a Wesleyan preacher in England and France
