Descendants of Benjamin Shenton
TreeIcon.png


This tree is reproduced much as submitted to us, but we have reservations about generations 1 and 2 as they were shown. Benjamin Shenton at generation 1 is shown in several online trees (probably copied from eash other) as born in Jersey in 1771, 1772 or 1773, or in England in 1777. But that would have made him up to 25 years older than his wife and in his mid-60s when the last of their children was born. That is not impossible, but there is no record of his birth in Jersey records and we cannot understand why he would have moved to Ireland, had four children, and then moved back to Jersey and had four more. We think it is more likely that Benjamin was born in Ireland, married Mary Bone there in about 1815, had four children and then emigrated to Jersey before the first of their children to be born in Jersey was baptised in St Brelade in 1827.

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 www.jerripediabmd.net. 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.
