Descendants of Robert Le Gresley

This tree purports to show the Le Gresley family of Jersey originating from the de Gresley family of Drakelow, Derby. It is an amalgamation of trees received from two different sources and has been reproduced with dates and relationships as shown in those trees, which largely correspond and were probably derived from a single source.

Guillaume (Guittame) at Generation 15 is shown as born in Derby, but may well have adopted the French name on arriving in Jersey, where his son Nicholas was supposedly born in St Ouen. However, the relationships down to Generation 18 should be treated with caution.

Some of the dates appear highly suspicious. Further problems occur at generation 23. A marriage between Jean Le Gresley and Elizabeth Perree with birth dates some 30 years earlier, is also shown in Descendants of Nicolas Le Gresley and seven individuals shown in the original versions of this tree as being the children of Jean and Elizabeth have been removed because it seems more likely that they belong to the earlier John and Elizabeth.

However all known references to either Elizabeth Perree (if indeed there were two), show her as being the daughter of Josue Perree and Marguerite de Caen. The dates shown for this couple fit with the Elizabeth shown in this tree, but not the earlier Elizabeth in the other tree.

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.
