Early records

The Extente of 1274 mentions Jourdain Chyvalir of Saint Mary and Matthieu dit Chivalir, a landowner in Saint Martin. In 1331 Robert Chevalier was one of the Jurats for the Extente, for St Martin. The Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains one Chevalier.

Antoine Chevalier was born in Trinity in 1490. In 1507 Antoine Chevalier, possibly the same, who married the sister of Victor Le Vavasseur, appears in the Royal Court records for Saint Helier and he is the ancestor of that parish's branch of the family.
