Alexandre of St Brelade

W20KirchBanknote39.jpg


Banknote (1835) of Matthieu and Francis Alexandre, generation 11

Colin Alexandre was recorded in the Extente of 1331 as living in St Brelade, with which parish, and the neighbouring St Peter, the name has for centuries been associated. The genealogy shown on this page is based upon trees at La Société Jersiaise by the mid-20th century genealogists Charles Langton and Pepperell. Their work has been transcribed, with dates and facts added by Guy Dixon in 2024

Note: There were at least two other branches of St Brelade Alexandres descended from this stock. [1] Langton and Pepperell, however, were not paid to extract their genealogies. From one of these branches was descended Captain Josue Alexandre, who became Constable of St Brelade, 1903-1910

In common with the majority of our trees, this descendancy has been subject to regular review by site editors and checked against Jersey church records. Trees including French ancestry have also been checked as far as possible against French primary records. It is not always possible to carry out such checks on sections of trees with United Kingdom and/or colonial content

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.

Notes and references

  1. Examples are Jean Alexandre of St Brelade (c1540- ), whose unnamed wife had issue Marie (1574) and Sebastien Alexandre, baptised in 1572, who married in 1598 Marie Coulomb. They had issue Pierre (1599), Edouard (1604), Nicolas (1606) and Denise (1610-1654), who married in 1635, Jean Ficquet. Also born in about 1540, was Thomas Alexandre of St Brelade, who married in 1570 Marie Rose. They had issue Pierre (1571), Jeanne (1575) and Thomas Alexandre (1582), who married in 1606, Marguerite, daughter of Pierre Vaudin. They were perhaps the parents of Josias Alexandre, son of Thomas, who was born in 1611
  2. Constable of St Brelade, 1527--1537-1538
  3. His sisters were probably his seniors in age
  4. RP 11/137 (1634) gives her surname as Le Brun. Langton has “Le Cornu”, no doubt a transcription error
  5. Martin de Gruchy manuscript law notebook
  6. Buried as “Mr Brelade Alexandre”
  7. Buried as “Mons. Pierre Alexandre”
  8. Drowned in the Atlantic: Alfred S. Pipon, Genealogies of the Families Pipon, (Jersey: Dingle and Nel, 1986), 108
  9. Godfather: Pierre Le Brun
  10. Officier du Connétable, 1591
  11. Vingtenier des Quennevais, 1650-1693
  12. His 1st cousin
  13. “Mr Jean Alexandre”, on burial in 1794
  14. Of Les Ormes, Quennevais. First Printer in Jersey, 1785; Constable`s Officer, 1787
  15. His first cousin
  16. Landowner and Country Banker, the latter commencing in 1817, underwritten by Mr Jean Le Brocq [La Fontaine] and Francois Alexandre [his maternal 1st cousin]. Their St Helier paying agent was Mr Jean Syvret, Broad Street. The bank, as McCammon records, was initially known as St Peter`s Jersey Bank. By 1835, it was Le Coin Bank, with Francis Alexandre now as secretary. The latter`s sister, Henrietta, having married Alexander Low of Le Coin, St Brelade, no doubt accounted for the new name. Matthieu was a Lieutenant, S.W. (5th) Regiment, RJM, with effect from 1812, and Vingtenier of Quennevais. He was drowned, aged 65 years and 2 months on the 9th March, together with Mr Thomas Poingdestre, who was no doubt a relative, and buried in St Brelade`s cemetery: Respectively, Almanac, Constitutionel (1821); A.L.T. McCammon, Currencies of the Anglo-Norman Isles, 216; St Brelade`s parish register (1841)
  17. Formerly of Les Ormes, St Brelade, and then of The Oaks, St Peter; Lieutenant, RJM, with effect from 1817, and promoted to the rank of Captain in 1834; Shipowner (1828-1849, retaining shares in shipping in 1851) and Banker (1841-1873), also Freeholder and Farmer of 18 acres (1851)
  18. Master Mariner. His baptism has not yet been found, but he features unambiguously as a son, together with the rest of the family in the 1851 census, and in that of 1861 as brother of Matthew George Alexandre. In 1871, he was a Lodger with his said brother`s maternal relative, William Falle, at Malorey Manor. He was issued with a Master`s Certificate of Competency at Jersey on February 17th 1851 and his Board of Trade Master`s Certificate on May 17th that year, at Liverpool, having served 9 years as apprentice, seaman and Mate. His vessels included the Jersey schooner-brigs Renard (142 tons) and Don (130 tons), owned by his father
  19. Banker`s and Shipowner`s Clerk (1851) then, on marriage in 1857, Merchant, “of Pillgwenlly, [near Newport] Wales (late of Jersey).” In 1861, he was a Farmer of 12 acres at Hawkmount, Le Coin, St Brelade. He appears to have suffered financially, not unsurprisingly, as a result of Jersey`s bank crashes in 1873, the year his father terminated his own banking activities. He and his wife were living at Brockagh, Beaumont, in 1891, the National Probate Calendar recording in 1894 probate to his two daughters in the sum of £865
  20. Merchant
  21. Gentleman, of the Falle property now named “Daisy Farm,” adjoining Matthew George Alexandre`s former home, The Oaks
  22. She died without issue, as did her elder brother
  23. Of La Patrimoine, St Lawrence, [Oil] Merchant and Dry Salter in London, as was his father. He was a widower by 1861. His sister Sarah married John Le Cronier, MD
  24. Master Mariner
  25. Schoolmaster
  26. Ecrivain (solicitor) of the Royal Court
  27. Ensign, RJM (1863). No issue
  28. Of The Oaks, St Peter
  29. Landowner
  30. For his godparents, see notes
  31. No issue
  32. Inspecteur des Chemins, Quennevais
  33. Godparents: Mr Matthieu Alexandre, grandfather, and Anne Robichon
  34. Her 1st cousin
  35. Of Quennevais; Lieutenant, S. W. (5th) Regiment of Militia
  36. Landowner and Banker, the latter in conjunction with his 1st cousin, Matthieu Alexandre
  37. Merchant
  38. Settled on his wife`s property in St Brelade; Deputy for St Brelade, 1893
  39. No issue
  40. No issue
  41. Of La Maison du Coin, St Brelade, formerly Surgeon, H.M. 5th Regiment, Medical Inspector-General, RJM and Deputy in the States for St Brelade. Issue of this marriage included Augusta Low, the wife of the Revd. George John Le Maistre, MA, Incumbent of St Aubin, and Harriet Helen Low, the wife of Major Drake
  42. Marie`s baptismal entry has not been found. However, she and her husband presented for baptism in 1762 their daughter, Marie de Lecq. Her godparents were Jean Dallain of St Peter and Elizabeth Alexandre, who was described as being the child`s “Aunt.” Marie Alexandre, herself, described as “wife of Francois de Lecq” was in 1781 godmother of George Francis Alexandre, son of the printer, Matthieu Alexandre, and of his wife Anne, nee Alexandre, who was Marie`s niece
  43. Named as Brelade Becquet in Langton`s Alexandre genealogy; however, 8/252 names him as Francois. They had issue Brelade Becquet and his sister Catherine, wife of Nicolas Gervaise
  44. Godmother of Brelade, son of Brelade Alexandre, in 1572
  45. Rector of St Brelade, 1554-1565; 1571-1572
  46. Mariner; probably originally a privateer, but found guilty of piracy on 18th January 1550/1: Cour de Catel. He was sentenced to be hung, as were his co-accused, Bernabey Le Quesne and John Wyte. The sentence was carried out upon the latter two but Alexandre was reprieved “for certain considerations of justice.” Being a son of the former Constable (Mayor) of St Brelade and having two brothers who were local priests, may have benefitted him
