Descendants of Abraham de Ste Croix


This was one of the earliest trees to be added to Jerripedia. It was sent to us before we had access to church records which enabled us to undertake the vigorous testing of trees which is now our standard practice. The absence of dates in this tree to begin with suggested that researchers should not place too much reliance on the tree. However, we carried out quick checks on some of the less common names in the tree and found that their position and immediate relationships are accurate.

A review in 2020 enabled us to add a generation and extra details at the top of the tree, although there is an ongoing doubt about the sequence of Abrahams

The tree was then checked from top to bottom and dates and further details added. However, a three-generation section at the bottom was removed, because, despite conflicting information in online trees, church records suggest strongly that it does not belong here. We now have a tree which we are confident to recommend to researchers, unlike other trees which cover the same family but include a significant number of unsubstantiated descendants

Confidence in the tree was enhanced after a review by Guy Dixon in 2022

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.
