Descendants of Jean Dorey


We have some reservations about the accuracy of the earlier generations of this submitted tree.

There is a record of a marriage in Trinity in 1714 of Thomas Dorey and Marguerite Falle. If they were the parents of Josue at generation 3, Thomas could not have been the son of Jean Dorey and Elizabeth Vaudin. There are clearly some records missing from the Trinity register.

It seems strange that if Thomas and Marguerite were married in 1714, their first child would have been born 14 years later, followed by four more over the next 15 years. However, if the Thomas shown in the tree was the father of the first child shown in the Trinity baptism register - Jean (1728- ) - with parents Thomas and Marguerite Falle, he would have been only 17 at the time. We believe that there must have been two Thomas Doreys married to different Marguerite Falles. We have left the first two generations, as submitted, but ignored the other children of Thomas and Marguerite.

There is also a big question mark over Dorothy Margaret Dorey (1890- ). Her baptism record shows her parents as Thomas and Marguerite Louisa Dorey. But other records suggest that Thomas married for a second time in 1878 and had children by his second wife Gertrude Giffard. We have been unable to resolve this anomaly

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 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.
