Alexandre 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 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. Fouageur of Trinity, 1579-82. For his probable parents, see Descendants of Jean Alexandre - 4 The forename Leonard was comparatively rare in Jersey at this time. He was the only Leonard Alexandre. As such, he did not need distinguishing from any namesake in legal documents, by the addition of a father`s name. Leonard, in common with Regnauld Alexandre and his son Richard, of the above family, faced difficulties with the then-affluent Trinity Le Boutilliers. In 1573 he had bought part of the inheritance of François Le Boutillier, son of Collas. By 1585 Jean Le Boutillier son of Philippe had acquired "all or part of the inheritance" of Leonard. This was doubtless the same Jean Le Boutillier, son of Philippe who, in 1607 was purchasing assets from Richard Alexandre- RP 2/132. Regnauld, Leonard and Richard Alexandre were not the only Alexandres entangled at that time with the Le Boutilliers. On 22 September 1597, there appeared before the Cour d`Héritage, featuring on the same page of the court rolls as Leonard Alexandre, Servais Alexandre. He had sold part of his inheritance to Philippe Le Boutillier, son of Jean. Leonard had sold, as above, to Jean Le Boutillier, son of Philippe, what was, in this new action, clearly stated as "part" of his inheritance. What had given rise to the 1597 action was that the Le Boutilliers had apparently conducted these purchases, "whether of land or rentes" without involving Gilles Lemprière, Seigneur du Fieu Noble de la Trinité, on whose fief the Alexandre land was situated. It would seem likely that these later transactions involving Alexandres and Le Boutilliers were the result of an earlier dispute, probably with regard to a shared inheritance that had been unsatisfactorily divided. The dispute probably arose in Regnauld Alexandre`s generation, being continued - or resolved in the only way possible - by what seem to have been his three sons
  2. RP 2/343 (1609) La maison et messuage qui furent à Leonard Alexandre et à Jeanne, sa femme
  3. Mentioned in his daughter's marriage record as having died by 1615. Philippe is mentioned as the son of Leonard in several legal documents, such as RP 2/285 (1608)
  4. RP 3/33 (1609)
  5. Fouageur of Trinity, 1630. His forename was also that used by the descendants of Jean Alexandre of Trinity, above. The property of Regnauld`s branch of the Trinity Alexandres was that now called Beaulieu in the Vingtaine of Rozel. The house was largely rebuilt in the early 19th century
  6. The family name of the bride is unclear in the Trinity register. Deeds clarify that it is Filleul and also give her parents
  7. RP 7/142 (1625). Regnauld and his wife were still living in 1651. RP 14/376 (1651): Regnauld Alexandre fils Philippe et Magdaleine Filleul, sa femme constitueront Josué Alexandre, leur fils, leur procureur"
  8. Josué, at the time of making his will of personalty, dated 23 September 1691, had only one surviving son, who had thus no need of being named, by whom Josué had an elder grandson, to whom he left his bed. Josué's son, Clément, had such a family. This is important as it establishes that his son Jean had predeceased him and was not the Jean Alexandre who, in 1704, married Jeanne [Le] Gallais, going on to father with her a family in the south of Trinity. This Jean Alexandre was a part of the Grouville family, which had settled in the mid-17th century in Mont au Prêtre, St Helier, as attested by his children`s godparents` names. This family was represented in the mid-19th century by the heirs of Jean Le Breton and Betty, nee Alexandre
  9. Of Les Vaux, St Martin
  10. Philippe Le Cornu, son of Philippe, son of Isaac lived in the vicinity of St Ouen's church. His land lay partly on the Fief Haubert and partly on that of St Hilaire
  11. Grandparents of Abraham de Gruchy, merchant and founder of A de Gruchy and Co
  12. Master mariner, privateer captain and merchant. He was the owner in 1753 of the brig Gratitude and commanded between 1756 and 1758 the privateers Union and Revenge. A ship he owned in his own right is recorded as arriving in 1757 from Southampton with a cargo of barley - J Jean Jersey Sailing Ships,. Jean records Alexandre as a privateer captain 1756-1763, supplying the dates of that particular war, rather than of Alexandre's career, as the latter died, perhaps from injuries received in action, in 1758. His Letter of Marque, one of the earliest surviving in Jersey, is dated 4 June 1756 and is reproduced in A C Saunders' Jersey in the 18th and 19th Centuries, This book describes the Revenge as being of 30 tons, with four cannons, six swivel guns and 30 men. Mention is then made that on 27 July 1756, Captain Alexandre captured a prize worth £10,000 "and later on several others"
  13. Of Bloomfield, son of Jean Alexandre, her cousin
  14. Godparents were Josué Alexandre, Grandpere and Marie Messervy Grandemere
  15. She married second Hugh Dupont of Vieux Ménage, Dénonciateur of the Royal Court, 1785-90
  16. Of Vieux Ménage, Maufant. The sale of Susanne`s paternal property is recorded in RP 89/167 (1799) Susanne Alexandre fille et seule héritière de feu Me Charles Alexandre and femme de Mons Hugh Dupont bailla...une maison Beaulieu...present Mse Susanne Le Gros, veuve en premières noces dudit Me Charles Alexandre. Fields that were named in the contract include Les Parquets and Le Clos à Brébis. The price of the property was 44 Quartiers 3 cabots in wheat rente. The purchaser, Philippe Du Pont, brother of Hugh, then sold the property in 1800 to Elie Stark son of Jean, who in his turn sold it in 1832 to Edmond Le Cornu, who sold it in 1834 to his brother-in-law, George [Philippe] Le Brun, in which family it still remains. For many years, between the remarriage of Susanne Le Gros, widow of the last Charles Alexandre, and 1834, Beaulieu was either let or unoccupied, as a contract in the possession of the Le Brun family mentions it as being in a ruinous state, necessitating considerable repairs and rebuilding
  17. George Nicolle is shown as the owner (in right of his wife) of Vieux Ménage, St Saviour, on Godfray's Map of Jersey, (1848). Their initials and date: GNC SDP 1826 are engraved on the property
  18. In 1811 Philippe Le Ruez, Captain (Militia Batteries), bought Les Ruettes, St John, (the property of the late Miss Jean Arthur), where Sophie Rachel`s herb garden can still be seen
  19. Settled in St Saviour
  20. Of Longfields, Rozel
  21. The will of her sister Jeanne, widow of Jean Le Boeuf, dated 7 September 1844, when she was aged 86, and proved on 1 October 1844, mentions Susanne as still living. A burial of Susanne Alexandre in St Saviour, where she lived, aged 68, does, however, seem to match her age
  22. Of Don Street and Belmont Road, with a property at Commercial Buildings; builder and builders' merchant. Their Don Street home, that had the builder`s yard behind it, is now called Westaway Chambers. Hidden now by the words "Westaway Chambers", is an engraved stone bearing the Westaways` initials: "?NW : AALX" with a date. They were the parents of Julia Westaway (1820-1901), philanthropist and founder of Le Don Westaway and of John Nathaniel Westaway (1812-1870) merchant and Seigneur of the Fief ès Débénaires. He died in 1870 with the loss of the Normandy, declining a lifeboat seat while women and children were still aboard. His monument overlooks St Helier Harbour, at the foot of Mount Bingham
  23. Parents of Thomas de Gruchy, master mariner and privateer owner, 1793-1825
  24. RP 33/119 (1723) reads: Jean Alexandre fils puiné de Clément Alexandre et de Jeanne Le Cornu, sa femme, héritier en partie à la succession collateralle de Jeanne Alexandre, sa soeur deffunte, bailla à Josué Alexandre, fils ainé
  25. Buried as Marie Cabot, widow of Jean Alexandre - a clerical error
  26. Of Rozel Vingtaine
  27. Initials and date engraved at Bloomfield, Victoria Village: CALX 1820. A case before the CH (1795) established that Charles was the elder son of Jean Alexandre and Anne Le Maistre, with younger siblings Jean and Philippe
  28. Buried as femme de Charles Alexandre
  29. Privateer captain and merchant
  30. Buried as Charles Alexandre jnr. A Trinity memorial records his age as 23
  31. Procureur du Bien Public, Trinity, 1816
  32. RP 111/144 names her father and two brothers, Pierre and Matthieu
  33. 1851 Census, Trinity: solicitor`s clerk and landed proprietor (1872)
  34. Merchant (1872)
  35. Deputy Inspector-General, Medical Department, Natal, South Africa
  36. Lieutenant de Cavalerie Polonaise. Two memorial inscriptions at Trinity feature members of this immediate Alexandre family, including that of Jeanne Marie, showing her husband`s armorial bearings
  37. Master mariner and privateer owner
  38. Of Clos Durell, Trinity
  39. RP 93/111 show Jean, who was alive in 1800, to have died by 1801. He had settled in St Helier and is likely to have been the Jean, a Charles Robin and Company master mariner, (1790-2)
  40. Lived in St Saviour 1789-96, and then in Augrès, Trinity; Sergeant in the Militia (1815)
  41. Sister of Abraham de Gruchy, above
  42. Farmer of 20 acres, 1851. The Alexandre seafaring tradition continued in the Blampied family. Of Charles and Elizabeth`s five sons, four were mariners, two of whom were masters. Captain Frederick Alexandre Blampied (1858-1900) had the misfortune to hit rocks off La Corbière in 1900, when master of the Rossgull. He died in the shipwreck. It has been suggested that their son Jean Blampied, was a master mariner from the age of 14, according to the UK and Ireland Masters` and Mates` Certificates, which provide his year of birth, 1819. This cannot possible be the same person if his parents married in 1809
  43. Master mariner
  44. Master mariner (1821-33) and ship owner, as Alexandre and Company, engaged in the carrying trade for the Canadian cod fisheries. He and his ship were lost on a voyage from Pernambuco to Newfoundland, 1833, with the entire crew (Jersey Shipping Register, 1835)
  45. She married second, Jean Hacquoil
  46. Living 1858; mariner

  49. This marriage supplied from family information, as are details of William John Alexandre`s family in Australia
  50. Settled at Castlemaine, Victoria
  51. Of Mont à L`Abbé, Jersey, farmer. His widow was declared bankrupt on 15 September 1851
  52. Currier
  53. All the children of Jean Alexandre and Marie Coutanche were adversely affected by their parents` insolvency. Elizabeth is mentioned in the Décret (1851)
  54. Described in bankruptcy hearings as fils ainé. He appears to have left the Island not long afterwards
  55. His memorial inscription, St Helier, records that he was "52 years a resident of the USA and served with active interest throughout the Civil War, 1861-1866"; Died at St Helier on a visit to his native Island
  56. 1851 Census, Grouville: landed proprietor and farmer at Profonde Arène, Fonds de Longueville
  57. Master mariner (-1833-) and ship owner; Captain RMIJ. Following the death at sea of his brother Philippe, he continued the latter`s Alexandre and Company. His first vessel was the 93-ton schooner, Alexander, built for him by Deslandes. Two years afterwards he went into partnership with John Carré, as Carré and Alexandre (1835-1852), ship owners, owning a total of eight vessels in the carrying trade associated with Gaspé and Newfoundland. In retirement he lived at Rouge Bouillon and was a Militia captain. A benefactor of La Société Jersiaise, he presented them with an ancient, engraved, Egyptian marble pillar, the procurement of which was the source of much debate within the family. For details as to his business character, see Abraham de Gruchy. He and his immediate family were buried at Old Mont à L`Abbé Cemetery
  58. Charles was brought up for the sea. He was awarded his first mate`s certificate on 23 May 1854, but died three years later, at Weymouth
  59. He was probably the enfant de Philippe Alexandre buried on 15 July 1807 at Trinity
  60. Philippe Alexandre m 3 (1823, Tr) Magdeleine Rachel Dorey
  61. Living 1841-51 in Grouville with her sister and brother-in-law, Philippe Journeaux
  62. Of Le Hurel, Croiserie. Bought from his maternal kinsman, Philippe Cabot, son of Jean, RP 48/58 (1763), with two fields, RP 47/214 (1763), formerly belonging to the vendor`s uncle, another Philippe Cabot. This Philippe Alexandre was in 1769 both farmer and shoemaker (ABSJ X111, 69]. On 28 September 1769, Alexandre was among those supporting Thomas James Gruchy and other leaders of the Trinity Revolt. This had arisen from discontent and suspicion of the small, inter-related 'junta', led by the Lemprières, that virtually ruled the Island at this time. Alleged manipulation of corn prices had been a `last straw`. At a meeting of the Royal Court on 25 January 1770, orders were given for the arrest of the ringleaders, among whom he was named and duly arrested, although little actually came of it, due to the influence of those appointed to examine the populace`s various grievances, which led to reform
  63. There is engraved at Le Hurel: PAL ERN 1764
  64. Settled in St Lawrence, 1782, at Coin Hâtain. The marriage register mentions that his wife was of St Lawrence and that Philippe was of Trinity
  65. Mariner, named after Moise de Ste Croix, his godfather
  66. A godfather was Aaron de Ste Croix
  67. Lived in St Helier. His will of personalty is dated 20 February 1801 and proved on 15 December 1810. Elizabeth Hocquard is called ma bien aimée épouse
  68. Veuve Jean
  69. Elizabeth`s St Helier baptism names her godfather as the merchant Nicolas Fiott
  70. Buried as Sally Alexandre, femme Charles Sohier
  71. Charles Sohier had as godparents on 14 December 1788 his eldest brother, "Pierre Sohier" and Marie Salmon, who married in 1790. The godparents featured in the next generation, that of Charles and Sara`s children (Sohier), are worthy of note in order to strengthen the case for both of the Alexandre/Sohier marriage placements. Among them were those of Jane in 1811: Douce Gaudin (widow of the first cousin of Sara`s late father, Jean Alexandre); those of Sally in 1818: Jean Alexandre, Oncle, et Marie Sohier and the godmother of Julie Jane Sohier in 1820: Jeanne Elizabeth Hocquard, (a member of her late grandmother`s family)
  72. On his marriage to Marie Sohier, he is described as Mons, a rank in Jersey that denotes some wealth or position. His son James` 1842 marriage entry states that Jean was an ecrivain, solicitor, which agrees with this rank. In later years the family experienced a dramatic downturn in fortune. Jean does not feature in either the 1841 or 1851 censuses, so had probably died by then. In that of 1851, St Helier, Marie Sohier was a widow
  73. Marie`s godparents were Pierre Sohier, grandpère et Marie Salmon, grandemère
  74. Elizabeth Sohier, tante was one of the godparents of Jean Alexandre
  75. Ann Elizabeth was in 1851 assisting her aunt, Jane Sohier, a lodging house keeper, of 17 Bond Street, and was herself in 1871 a lodging house keeper, with Sohier cousins, at Val Plaisant. She was unmarried
  76. Of Francis Street, St Helier, then of 15 Old St John`s Road, baker
  77. Present at his father's death
  78. Emigrated to Australia, 1886
  79. Emigrated to Australia, 1886
  80. The two William Alexandres, here and above, apart from their 11 month age gap, are distinguishable by their mothers' names, Marie and Elizabeth, being given in their respective birth records. Both mothers were, in 1851, general servants, perhaps working with or for their Sohier relatives, in their lodging house
  81. Settled in St Helier. His daughter Nancy`s second marriage entry (1853), gives his occupation as ropemaker
  82. Rachel`s sister, Nancy Alexandre, was a godparent in 1821 of her son, John Philips. In 1834, on the baptism of her son, Charles Philips, Nancy was again a godparent, albeit more formally described as Anne Alexandre, together with her husband, Thomas Malcott (represented by John Philips)
  83. Their marriage entry, St Saviour, gives her parish as Trinity, his as St Saviour. She was buried in St Helier, predeceasing her husband, who later remarried
  84. He was, in 1815, "en mer", (Military Census). He was doubtless at this date a mariner
  85. Issue: Jenny Rachel Chevalier (1820-1823)
  86. Builder, of Petite Augrès, Trinity, in 1851. A Constable's Officer in 1841, he was later a housebuilder, of Town Mills, St Helier
  87. Carpenter
  88. Cooper
  89. Carpenter
  90. Elie Alexandre of Oak Shade Lodge, Petite Augrès, was a shoemaker in 1861
  91. Shoemaker, living at home, 1861. An Elie Alexandre (Elie or his father) of Petite Augrès was a Trinity ratepayer, 1878
  92. Dressmaker, 1861-81, living at home, (in 1881, alone), unmarried. Many of this family varied, sometimes considerably, their ages as given in censuses.
  93. Dressmaker, 1861-71, living at home
  94. Blacksmith, 1861
  95. Philippe was a carpenter, of Honduras House, 16 Windsor Road, St Helier. He was still living in 1883
  96. Blacksmith and locksmith, of Susanna Cottage, Ann Street, St Helier, in 1870; also bell-hanger. He later lived at 9 Val Plaisant
  97. Captain employed by the Indo-China Steam Navigation Company in 1925; Master ss Waishing
  98. They lived at 9 Val Plaisant, St Helier
  99. Family source
  100. Ironmonger, of 38 Halkett Place, St Helier
  101. Her burial entry records that her two husbands, both of whom were St Helier men, were master mariners
  102. RP 35/80 (1727) Rachel Alexandre, fille puinée de feu Clément Alexandre et de deffunte Jeanne Le Cornu, sa femme, et femme de Jean Rouet
  103. Settled in St Saviour RP 11/40 (1636) "Noel Le Vavasseur dit Durell sold a house [etc] to Jean Alexandre son of Philippe." A condition of the sale was that the vendor would train "the son" of the purchaser in the trade of a tailor. The only son of Jean Alexandre was Amice. Jean Alexandre, son of Philippe and his younger siblings can be placed within this descent by RP 14/221 (1649): "Jean Alexandre fils puinée de Philippe Alexandre et de Collette Bellée, sa femme d`une partie, et Regnauld Alexandre, fils ainé dudit Philippe Alexandre et de Collette Bellée, d`autre. Elizabeth Alexandre femme de Jean Le Tubelin, Marie Alexandre femme d`Elie Le Maistre et Jeanne Alexandre femme de Philippe Vibert, filles dudit Philippe Alexandre et de Collette, sa femme"
  104. He was trained as a tailor, see above. In 1669 he sold his house in St Saviour, "contrée de Maufang", to Thomas Ahier (RP 19/115), and remained in St Martin, where he had lived for at least twelve years, probably since his marriage
  105. Anne Le Maistre was also co-heir of her brother, Philippe: RP 15/159 (1654), which mentions that Anne was already married to Amice Alexandre at this date
  106. Grandparents of Philippe Le Gallais, solicitor, later of La Moye, Jurat
  107. RP 33/106 (1723) "Rachel de Ste Croix tutrice of Marie Alexandre, third daughter of the late Jean Alexandre sells to Rachel Alexandre, elder daughter and principal heiress of the said defunct and wife of Philippe Maret. Jeanne Alexandre, second daughter of the late Jean Alexandre son of Amice and wife of Jean Le Gallais" Also, RP 38/131 (1736) "Marie Alexandre fille Jean, fils Amice, et femme de Jean Hébert demeurant en la ville de Canterbury..."
  108. RP 27/100 (1700)
  109. Probable daughter
  110. A possible younger sibling of Regnauld, Jean, Elizabeth, Jeanne and Marie was Marguerite Alexandre m (1620, St Mt) Jean Filleul. If so, she is likely to have died before the partage of 1657, RP 15/444, probably without surviving issue
