Descendants of Collas du Feu
TreeIcon.png


This tree was added to the site in 2011 and reviewed in 2018, when further details were added. The upper part of the tree has been revised since then, with details added by Guy Dixon, in 2021. Future research in the Jersey Land Registry and Court Rolls, should enable further 16th and 17th century du Feus and their descendants to be placed within either this branch of the Trinity family, Descendants of Richard du Feu or Descendants of Nicolas du Feu. The tree will almost certainly be extended into the 15th century. Descendants of Collas du Feu - 2 is another copy of part of the tree from a different source. The descendancy there is a little suspicious.

Given the importance of the family in Jersey and the fact that there are nearly 800 births and baptisms in our database, the coverage of some of the du Feu family trees is less than satisfactory and these will be reviewed in 2021.

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. Collas (or Nicolas) du Feu was probably the man of this name described in 1603 as the eldest son of an earlier Lucas du Feu. In a partage of the latter`s inheritance in that year, Nicolas, the ainé, divided land and rentes with his two sisters, represented by their husbands. These were Nicolas Grandin, as guardian of his children, on behalf of Servaise du Feu, his wife, and Jean Le Riche, on behalf of Marguerite du Feu, his wife. The latter received rentes and the former a field named La Pieche de Hubat (Hubert). The elder son, Nicolas would have been born in about 1550, as was Collas (Nicolas) at the head of this tree, who were probably one and the same, and the father, Lucas du Feu, would have been born circa 1520: L/C/166/A2/1 (1603), at the Jersey Archive
  2. Named with her children in a partage dated 19 September 1640: L/C/47/A/175, at the Jersey Archive
  3. Lucas du Feu, fils Collas, owed the Crown annually 3 cabots of wheat for the heirs of John Vaultiquier, as recorded in the 1607 Extente. Nicolas du Feu also owed a loaf and a hen for the same in that Extente. The latter was almost certainly Lucas` brother, as this charge was payable by Lucas` son, Richard, in the Extente of 1668. These charges may have arisen from a purchase of land from the heirs of John Vaultiquier by Lucas du Feu and his likely brother, Nicolas
  4. Richard was recorded in the Extente of 1668 as paying the Crown annually the above charges. His Will of personalty, dated 18/01/1674, in which he describes himself as "Richard du Feu fils Lucas", mentions Elie du Feu, his uncle and a field the testator had reclaimed from the latter`s inheritance by way of retraite, Elie having sold it to Elie de Gruchy. This field was Le Clos du Charbon. Marie de Gruchy, who watched over and assisted Richard during his illness, received a couple of sheep and two lambs. A brother-in-law mentioned was Nicolas Messervy, who will have married Richard`s sister
  5. Nicolas du Feu`s baptism was not recorded but the contracts below show that he was the son of Richard du Feu
  6. L/C/227/174/5 (August 1719) at Jersey Archive: Aaron Le Breton fils François of one part and Nicolas du Feu, fils Richard, and Marie Le Breton, his wife, only daughter of the aforesaid Aaron Le Breton, of the other party. Also L/C/227/A4/7 (1729) Nicolas du Feu fils Richard and Philippe Vaudin fils Michel, regarding a 3 1/2 vergee field on the Fief of Petit Rozel. Nicolas du Feu, in right of his wife, inherited the fine property, Les Ifs, in the Vingtaine of Croiserie
  7. Engraved upon a stone on the north elevation of Les Ifs is: 17 RDF 35. Another stone bore the initials and date: RDF 1746 EG, to commemorate Richard and his wife, Elizabeth Gruchy
