Brunet family page
This family appears in St Helier Church registers from 1702 onwards, when refugees from France Jean Brunet and Marie Deshais were married at St Saviour. Their descendants can be traced down to Henry, son of Henry and Anne Mauger, who was baptised in St Helier in 1778. Eight children of Jacques and Susanne Guyon were baptised in the same parish from 1821, but despite several attempts to link them to the earlier Brunets, they were not related, and Jacques was not born in Jersey, as many online trees claim. He was born in St Saturnin, France
