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.

  6. William was previously thought to have been the "W. de Gruchy," listed by John Jean in Jersey Sailing Ships, as a Master mariner in 1844. However, his comparatively early date of decease, now discovered, aged 26, amends this. He had no issue: see Décret of his brother Jean

  16. Jersey`s best-known Silversmith and Clockmaker. In the 1841 St Helier census, there was recorded living with him, his cousin Esther de Gruchy (1778-1869), described as a servant. She was in fact believed to have been his housekeeper and companion. The principal heir of Thomas was his nephew, the silversmith Jean Le Gallais. The latter`s descendants Roy, in a female line, have to this day in Canada two matching portraits, stated for more than a century and a half, to be those of Thomas de Gruchy and his wife. As it was frequently the custom to portray a sitter with an object denoting their occupation or favorite pastime, in this instance holding a silver container, the identity of de Gruchy went unchallenged. However, he never married. Nevertheless, the accompanying portrait of the supposed wife may well have been that of his housekeeper and companion, Esther de Gruchy: see also Descendants of Jean Le Gallais and Francoise Boivin
