Descendants of Louis d'Avoine
TreeIcon.png


This family appears to originate in the Manche department of Normandy and to have divided in the first generation in Jersey when some of the family emigrated to Canada.

Although several online trees show Louis Davoine as being born in Jersey and marrying Elizabeth Gruchy in Trinity in 1790, we can find no record of either his baptism or marriage. We believe that Louis came to Jersey from France, possibly from Quettreville in Normandy. The names given to two of their children suggest a very strong French influence

Elizabeth Gruchy arrived in Canada with two children Marie and Josue on 3 July 1807, having come via Cork in Ireland. Her husband's name was given variously as Louis Avoine or Louis D'Avoine, but there is no record of Louis going to Canada. His profession was said to be a navigator.

Elizabeth Gruchy died in Cap St-Ignace, Quebec in 1830. Her daughter Marie died in Quebec City in 1810 shortly after giving birth to a son at the age of 17. Josue, a shoemaker, married Marie Genevieve Vezina and had 12 children, but there is no record of him after his last daughter was born in 1838. There is a suggestion that he tried to return to Jersey in 1838 to visit his relatives but never arrived. He was declared dead 13 years later.

The tree was added to the site in 2016 and reviewed in 2018
