Descendants of Jean Renouf


This tree, which starts in Guernsey, should be read in conjunction with Descendants of Pierre Renouf (1579) and Descendants of Pierre Renouf son of Jean which have been on Jerripedia for some time. All three trees follow essentially the same lineage and we now believe that Descendants of Pierre Renouf (1579) and this new tree are more accurate in the earlier generations.

This tree, as submitted, shows three marriages for Pierre at generation 2, but the dates for the children of those marriages do not make sense in relation to the supposed order of marriages, so we are only showing the marriage to Susanne Mourant, and the two children supported by Jersey baptism records. It should be noted that we have not been able to find a baptism record for Pierre (1643- ) at generation 3.

Although it tends to support the sequence of three Pierres at generations 2-4, which has previously been in doubt, the tree, which appears to have been largely copied from some online of dubious accuracy, also includes a second marriage for Jean (1705- ) which we have omitted because one child overlaps those born to his first wife, and the other is of an impossible date.

A further review in 2021 revealed further complications. There is considerable disagreement about the parents of Pierre, at generation 6, who married Elizabeth Romeril. This tree suggests that he was born in Jersey, but other researchers claim that he was born in Guernsey. He and Elizabeth were certainly married in St Lawrence in 1739. Because the new information differs so markedly from existing trees we have introduced yet another - Descendants of James Renouf. It will take a considerable amount of work to unravel the tangles in our early Renouf trees and we would welcome help from anyone who has researched these generations

Renouf family page and links to other trees

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.
