Descendants of Philippe Jean


Jean of La Ville au Neveu

This tree which is incomplete may, nevertheless, be of interest to readers. It may also enable others to build upon it. It formed part of a study by Guy Dixon of families and their land in this part of St Ouen. As usual, early dates must be seen as approximate

Jean 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.

Notes and references

  1. Date of partage
  2. RP2/169; also L/C/89/A/47 (1607) at Jersey Archive. In the latter, Helier de Carteret, gent. and Jean Le Cras, son of Jacques, were the tenants après décret (principal creditors) of Jean Jean. As such, they sold a costil in St Mary, on the Fief au Vesque, to Matthieu Jean, presumably returning it to the family. There is, however, a risk of ambiguity, as Matthieu either married twice or had a namesake, who died at about the same date. A Matthieu Jean married Collette Guillaume, daughter of Yves. This Matthieu was mentioned on 25th June 1613 in the Actes du Colloque de Jersey, 1577-1614, being the acts of the Island`s ecclesiastical assembly, for his and his daughter Rachel Jean`s absence from church, together with Clement Perchard. The excuse was that it was the vraicing season! The partage of his inheritance among his and Collette`s children is recorded in RP9/258 (May 1632) and a sale by one to another is recorded in RP10/370 (1636). The issue of Matthieu and Collette were Matthieu, the eldest son, Philippe, Judith, widow of Thomas Le Rossignol, Elizabeth, wife of Guillaume Hamon, the above Rachel, wife of Thomas Neho and Marie. The names Matthieu and Philippe are those featured on this tree. Research is ongoing
  3. Matthieu Jean was described at the time of his father's death as Matthieu Jean junr. (1632). He was buried as Matthieu Jean senr. (1663). He was of age in 1603 and was a tenant of the Fief des Vingt Livres
  4. Thomas Jean was described as fils ainé in his father's partage (1664)
  5. Langton's Miscellany, at La Société Jersiaise
  6. Philippe's godparents were his uncle by marriage and aunt, respectively, Pierre Grault of Ville au Neveu, St Ouen, and Mabel Jean, his wife. Philippe sold on 29 October 1686 land in the Val de Lecq, Fief des Vingt Livres, St Ouen and partly on the Fief au Vesque, St Mary, to Jean de Carteret: L/C/47/A/296, at the Jersey Archive. He is described as “Philippe Jean, fils Thomas, fils Matthieu”
  7. Thomas Jean was described as (translated), “son of Philippe, son of Thomas, son of Matthieu” in a deed dated 1713, by which he registered a right of access to Le Clos de Gratien by Thomas Le Cornu's land: L/C/65/B10/8, at the Jersey Archive. Le Clos de Gratien is situated to the south of Bampton Farm, in La Ville au Neveu. He married and had descendants, including a great-grandson, Philippe Jean (1775-1843), a former captain in the 21st North British Fusiliers, having previously been an officer of the Suffolk Fusiliers, Captain and Adjutant, Jersey Militia, and Paymaster, 96th Foot Regiment. He had served both at home and abroad, latterly in Tasmania and India. He died at sea, returning from India to the United Kingdom: see CIFHS Journal 133 (Vol. ix, 2012)
  8. Godparents: Matthieu Jean junr. [uncle] and Jeanne Robin, wife of Matthieu Jean, Jeanne Robin being the child`s grandmother
  9. Esther Jean is usefully described in the register as "daughter of Thomas, son of Matthieu". She had as godfather, Thomas Le Maistre of St Brelade
  10. Described on baptism as Sara Jean “fille Matthieu, fils Matthieu”, Sara had as godparents her uncle and aunt, Thomas Jean, son of Matthieu, and his wife
  11. Described on baptism as Elizabeth Jean “fille Matthieu jnr”, she had as godparents Thomas Jean fils Matthieu and Mabel Jean
  12. Samuel Jean, on burial, was described as being of La Ville au Neveu
  13. One of two ambiguous Jean Jeans, son of Jean, this Jean had as godparents Matthieu Jean, grandfather, and Judith Robert. The Jersey Land Registry and other sources are needed to clarify the relationship
  14. Philippe Jean, described as fils 2e nay (second-born son) in his father`s partage of inheritance. Of Les Camps Pellez, St Ouen. The record continues dans lequel clos ... la maison dudit Philippe Jean est bastie', which being roughly translated is 'in which field, the house of the said Philippe Jean is [now] built”: RP 9/422. Les Camps Pellez or Pelles are, as they sound, fields that have been `pealed` or cleared, having had stumps and scrub removed. There is a cluster of these, situated to the south and a little to the east and west, of the above Bampton Farm, the former being a late 19th century name. This was, most likely, previously the home of Philippe Jean. See Stevens, Arthur and Stevens, Jersey Place Names, 1, 403
  15. Godparents: Jean Jean, fils Philippe, and his wife
  16. Jean Jean, son of Philippe, described as “Jean Jean du Camps Pellez m Rachel Perier”
  17. Thomasse is usefully described in the church register as "daughter of Jean, son of Philippe"
  18. Philippe Jean du Camp Pellez, marrying in the 1650s, was probably the son of the first Philippe of that address
  19. Possible son
