Descendants of Vincent Romeril


Romeril of Herupe, St John.

The original home of this branch of the Romeril family was Beaupré, formerly known as Beech Farm, on the east side of Route de St Jean, within a few yards of Rue du Feugerel. The lane leads directly to La Fontaine, Ville à L`Evêcque, home of the Romerils of La Fontaine. The fields of the two Romeril families appear to have adjoined one another at the parish boundary, the two houses being situated within a quarter of a mile of each other.

Vincent Romeril (generation 1) had, in his lifetime, kinsmen living in St John, from two of whom, John Romeril and Nicolas Romeril, were descended, there and elsewhere, distinct Romeril families. Furthermore, one of the Romerils of La Fontaine, Trinity came, in the 17th century, to live among the Romerils of Herupe, as had Jonas Romeril of Sark, at the start of the century. Both left descendants. All the trees must therefore be studied with this in mind.

Notes and references

  1. Brothers: Vincent Romeril may have had brothers. A man named Edmond Romeril living in St John, is mentioned in the 1528 Extente as owing the Crown annually 11 cabots of wheat in his own parish, and three cabots in St Martin, with which parish, Vincent`s family was to have a connection. Edmond Romeril was engaged in a suit before the Cour d`Héritage in 1506, so will have belonged to the generation of Vincent. The latter`s son, Anthoine, named his only known son Edmond. A further brother of Vincent, may well have been Matthieu Romeril, of whom little is known, other than his having had a son, Symon Romeril, both father and son bearing given names found particularly among the Descendants of Vincent Romeril. This Symon Romeril was clearly of age in 1523, meaning that he will have been born, at the very latest, in 1503, perhaps earlier. His father will have therefore been of Vincent`s generation. Furthermore, Symon, at least, lived in Trinity in 1523, in the Vingtaine du Rondin, on the Fief de Diélament: Role du Trésor, Trinity (1523). Vincent Romeril`s son, Anthoine, and his son Edmond (above) were of Trinity, living also in Rondin
  2. Living in 1528 Extente; Sergent de St Jean in that year: Cour d`Heritage, June 1528. CH May 1582: “Symon Romeril, the said Symon , eldest son of Vincent Romeril and of Jenette, his wife...”
  3. Jourdain Hamon was Centenier of St John in 1508. Symon Romeril`s wife was the sister of Edouard Hamon, Rector of St John, and of Jean Hamon, Constable of that parish
  4. Anne Mallet married firstly, in 1567, Macy Falle of Maufant: CH, 1587: Jean Nicolle, guardian of the children of Edmond Falle, son of Macy Falle and of Anne, his wife, daughter of Henry Mallet, defendant in an action brought by Clement Romeril, guardian of the children of Collas Romeril and of the said Anne, his wife by her last marriage, for a just part of her inheritance. See also ABSJ, VI, 80
  5. Of Catillon de Bas
  6. RP 4/24 (1612): Symon Romeril fils Collas, having legal right of Edmond Falle, son of Macy and of Anne Mallet, his wife, daughter of Henry Mallet, the elder, and Jean Romeril, son of the said Collas, having right of Jean Romeril (sic) his brother, Symon and Jean brothers, sell to Edouard Dumaresq all of the inheritance falling to them by the death of Anne Mallet, their mother
  7. Collette Blampied`s siblings and their spouses were Denys Blampied, elder son, Katherine Blampied, wife of Helier de Gruchy, Collette Blampied wife of Jean Maret and Genette Blampied, wife of Jean Giffard: R P 3/294 (1612)
  8. RP 10/327 (9 April 1636): Elizabeth Romeril, elder daughter, and principal heiress of Jean Romeril, son of Collas, conveyed to Jean Baudains, son of Edouard, the inheritance that had fallen to her upon the death of her said father, for the sum of 7 Quartiers. This property, that of her paternal family, was undoubtedly that now called Beaupre and called from the late 19th century, Beech Farm, on St John`s main road, in Herupe. The fields named Le Grand Clos, Le Clos and Le Petit Clos de Romeril, being respectively numbered J1038, J1022 and J1023, close to, and south-east of, the house, as well as Le Grand Clos de Romeril (J1011) a little to the north-west of it, bear continuing testimony of the family`s presence in the area, as may Le Clos Vincent (J1046) to the south. The purchaser, Jean Baudains, who was also her brother-in-law, had his initials engraved there, with the date 1668: IBD 1668 — the year of the Extente, when he is recorded as owing the Crown 11 cabots (1 Quartier 3 cabots) annual wheat rente on behalf of Elizabeth. It should be noted that Elizabeth`s lineage, as given in the Extente, covering four generations, features an erroneous Clement Romeril, which is disproved both by contracts and court records
  9. RP 9/441 (1633): Jean Gallichan, in right of his wife, daughter of Jean Romeril fils Collas, ..together with Elizabeth Romeril, elder daughter of the said Jean Romeril, Elizabeth (sic) Romeril widow of Philippe Vaudin, and Collette Romeril, wife of Jean Baudains..heirs of the body of the said Jean Romeril, their late father...[divide the inheritance
  10. It was not uncommon in 16th and 17th century Jersey to have two children, whether male or female, of the same name. The practice is thought to have stemmed from there being, at the time of the birth of a new child, an ailing child, thought likely to die, within the family. The name of the latter was passed to the new arrival, to comfort the mother. Should the ailing child revive, then the two namesakes were distinguished by the words 'senior' and 'junior'. An example of this practice, that was rendered largely obsolete in the early 18th century, is furnished above by two siblings named Elizabeth, as shown in the following: RP 11/238 (24 September 1636): “Jean Baudains, having right to the part of the inheritance of Elizabeth Romeril, elder daughter and principal heiress of Jean Romeril, fils Collas, together with Marie Romeril, second born daughter of the said Jean Romeril and wife of Jean Gallichan; Elizabeth Romeril, third born daughter of the said Jean Romeril, and Collette Romeril, youngest daughter of the said Jean Romeril and wife of Jean Baudains...” (adjusting their respective parts of the inheritance).The second Elizabeth`s husband was unmentioned. As a widow, she stood in her own right
  11. Purchaser in 1636 (above) of the house and land of this, the senior line of St John Romerils. His Baudains descendants retained the property into the 19th century, when it passed in the female line into the family of the two Jurats Picot
  12. RP 4/112 (1613): “Symon Romeril, fils Collas, conveys to Jean Romeril, his elder brother...” . RP 4/24 (1612) names Symon`s mother as Anne Mallet, and see RP 11/278, below
  13. RP 11/278 (1638) Nicolas Romeril son of Jacques, the said Jacques son of Collas, together with Nicolas Romeril son of Symon, the said Symon son of Collas, sell to Jean Gallichan and Jean Baudains, in right of their wives, their respective inheritances derived from the late Helier Romeril, son of Symon, who had died without heirs of his body. Nicolas Romeril may have been livingin St Helier in 1637
  14. Colonist in Massachusetts? The Jersey genealogist, the Rev J A Messervy, in ABSJ, V, 34, wrote that "one of the first colonists in the west of the State of Massachusetts..was..Simon Romeril.. [He] would have come from Jersey about the year 1650". The given name Simon was, among the Romerils at this epoch, limited to those of Herupe, and should not be confused with Simeon. This particular Simon, or Symon, does not appear in island burial registers and is notable for his apparent absence from Island records. The year 1658 is more likely a date for his migration to Massachusetts. His baptism is recorded in St John: Symon Romeril “fils Nicolas, fils Symon”. His godparents were Unknown Romeril, sister of the said Nicolas, and Philippe Romeril son of Philippe, her husband. The godmother was Collette Romeril, sister of Nicolas. She would later be widowed and marry again, this time to Philippe Romeril son of Matthieu. There were frequent inter-cousin marriages in Jersey
  15. RP 13/119 (1646): “Nicolas Romeril son of Symon, principal heir of Philippe Romeril, his brother, sells...” Real estate passed, by law in Jersey, on the death of a person to their children, in order of seniority. Failing heirs of that person`s own flesh, their elder sibling and, in due course, their issue inherit, as here, with younger siblings receiving a portion
  16. Collette`s first husband, Philippe Romeril fils Philippe, was her second cousin
  17. Collette`s second husband, Philippe Romeril fils Matthieu, was her first cousin
  18. RP 2/330 (1608): “Jean Romeril son of Philippe, having right to the part of the inheritance of Jeanne Romeril, in right of her mother, Anne daughter of Henry Mallet the Elder, together with Matthieu Romeril son of Collas and of the said Anne, mother of the said Matthieu (sic), daughter of the said Henry Mallet, sell to Jean Mallet, son of Jacques, the inheritance to which Jean Romeril had right and Matthieu Romeril had inherited from his mother, Anne Maller”
  19. Collette was Philippe Romeril`s first cousin
  20. See below
  21. On her marriage in 1675, to Clement Romeril, Marie was described as "Marie Romeril, fille Philippe, fils Matthieu, de Herupe." Their son Matthieu, baptised in 1676, had as godparents "Philippe Romeril, fils Philippe, fils Matthieu," being the child`s maternal uncle, and Elizabeth Esnouf, wife of Jean Romeril
  22. Godparents: Jean Baudains and Collette, his daughter
  23. Clement Romeril “fils Philippe, fils Matthieu” had as godparents his father`s young second cousin-once-removed, Jean Romeril, fils Clement, and Marie Lempriere, his fiancée, who married shortly afterwards
  24. Settled in St Peter: RP 3/180 (1611): “Jean Romeril son of Collas, of the parish of St Peter, conveys to Jean Romeril son of Collas, of the parish of St John, any part of the inheritance to which the said Romeril of St Peter would be entitled by the death of Helier Romeril, son of Symon.” The exact relationship of Helier Romeril, son of Symon, to the above two Jean Romerils, is important, as most of their generation`s legal transactions involved their maternal Mallet inheritance. The following provides Helier Romeril, fils Symon`s, exact relationship to the two Jeans, and therefore proof of their grandfather, Helier`s father, being Symon Romeril: RP 4/6 (1612): “Jean Romeril junr. fils Nicolas [Romeril] of St John, sells to Jean Romeril, his elder brother,..five cabots of wheat [annual rente] to be received from the inheritance of the said Jean Romeril junr., as a result of the death of Helier Romeril his uncle.” As seen, Helier Romeril was “fils Symon”, the latter being therefore the grandfather of the two Jeans and of their siblings
  25. RP 4/237 (1615): “Jacques Romeril, son of Collas and of Anne, his wife, daughter of Henry Mallet, conveyed to Collas Mallet, son of Richard, his share of the inheritance of the late Anne, his mother.” The 1607 Extente identifies Jacques` wife as the daughter of John Hamon, on whose behalf he owed the Crown three cabots of wheat annually. Deeds and St John`s Church Register show her to have been named Perronelle
  26. The 1668 Extente records Nicolas Romeril, son of Jacques, as owing the Crown the above three cabots annually, on behalf of John Hamon
  27. The 1749 Extente records "Philip Romeril, son of John, son of Nicolas", as owing the Crown annually, in St John, the above three cabots of wheat
  28. The issue, as given here, resulting from this marriage, needs augmenting in due course
  29. RP 2/361 (1609). The St Mary Register records the widowed Cecille`s burial, on the east side of the churchyard, as being "50 years after having married"
  30. RP 4/44 (1602): Helier Romeril fils Symon sold to Philippe Romeril fils Clement [his nephew] four cabots of wheat rente. RP 3/98 (1610): Jean Romeril, elder son of Collas Romeril was principal heir to the collateral succession of Helier Romeril, son of Symon, who will have thus died without descendants
  31. CH (October 1569): On the part of Germain Hamon..., Edouard Messervy junr. and Jourdain Hamon, and on behalf of Clement Romeril and Collas Romeril..who have agreed to arbitration for part of the [maternal] inheritance
  32. CH (1583): Richard Dolbel, in right of his wife, the elder daughter of Jean Grossier, the said Jean the elder son of Richard Grossier and of Marguerite, his wife, daughter of Laurens Mallet, defendant in an action brought by Collette Grossier, widow of Clement Romeril and daughter of the said Richard and his wife. This gives the parentage of Clement Romeril`s wife and shows that he had died by then

  50. The infant Philippe`s godmother enables his father, in the midst of many inter-cousin marriages, to be unambiguously identified. The godmother was Jeanne Le Boutillier, clearly stated as being mother of the baby`s father. In 1676, Philippe, himself, was godfather to Matthieu Romeril, son of his maternal half-sister, Marie Romeril, by her husband, a Clement Romeril

CH Livre 4 (1574), the court sitting in St John: Jean Romeril, acteur, of one part, and Guillaume Messervy, in right of his wife, daughter of Jourdain Hamon, purchaser of the inheritance of Katherine Romeril, of the other part...Although the parentage of Katherine was not given, had she been a daughter of Symon Romeril and of his wife, the daughter of Jourdain Hamon, the sale of maternal land to immediate Hamon relatives would have fulfilled the requirement of Jersey law to retain, within a family, its own land, with the exception, however, of a claim arising from any sibling of hers, as was evidently the case in this instance
  59. See above
  60. CH (4/1574) and (1/1576). The 20th century Jersey genealogist, Charles Langton, believed her father`s name was John
  61. CH May 1582: A part of the inheritance of Vincent Romeril and of Jeanette, his wife, set aside for Jacques Grandin, elder son of Collas Grandin and of Katherine, his wife, daughter of the said Vincent.... Jacques Grandin`s brother, Francois Grandin, is also mentioned in these proceedings
  62. Fils Vincent CH May 1582: Jacques Rondel, guardian of the children of John Le Boutillier, who had a legal right to [part of] the inheritance of Symon Romeril, the said Symon eldest son of Vincent Romeril and of Jenette, his wife, being sued by Servais Romeril, son of Jean Romeril, the said Jean [being] the younger son of the said Vincent and of his said wife, regarding the above inheritance

  66.

This shows clearly Edmond`s right to a share of the property which had been Vincent`s and Symon`s, claiming it as the son of Anthoine. Such land had to remain within the family unless sold or seized by creditors, and even then, a family member could legally reclaim it, in exchange for moneys due or owed. Also, April 1573: A portion ... of the inheritance of Vincent Romeril and of his wife granted to Edmond Romeril [by way of inheritance]
  67.
