The tree throws up a very interesting family story. At first we believed that Francis George Bisson Le Cras at Generation 5 might not fit into this tree at all. He was born on 7 December 1846 and baptised in St Helier on the 20th. He was baptised Bisson and the register shows him as the illegitimate son of Mary Bisson. His father is shown as Le Cras, but his forename is illegible, although it looks more like Pierre than Philippe.

This suggests three possibilities. The first is that Mary Bisson was not married and named a Le Cras as father of her child. The second is that she was a widow and that her husband, a Le Cras, had died before her child was born. The third, and although probably the most unlikely, which does appear to be the case with Mary's child, is that the father was another Le Cras, possibly a close relative of her late husband.

The record of the marriage of Francis to Sarah Eastman in 1866 seems to confirm his position. He was named as Francis Bisson Le Cras, son of mariner Philip Le Cras. Census returns also show him as part of Mary's household with siblings Philip John and Henry Charles in 1851. There is no mention of Mary's husband. As a mariner he might have been at sea, but if Mary was already a widow when Francis George was born in 1846, that would also explain her husband's absence from the census. It is interesting that Francis George, at the age of four, was described in the census return as a scholar and pauper.

However, the picture is further complicated by the presence of a burial record for Philippe Le Cras in St Helier on 11 June 1845. He is shown aged 39 years and three months and a mariner. There are no other similar burials at the time so this must have been Mary's husband. But he died 18 months before the birth of Francis George, so he could not possibly have been his father.

Philippe had a younger brother Pierre, so was he the father of Francis George, and named as such on his baptism record. Whoever his father was, Francis George took the surname Le Cras, and passed it on to his children and their descendants. See family page for photographs
