Descendants of Nicholas Guerdain

This tree was one of the earliest added to the site in 2010.

There is much confusion about the early members of the Guerdain family who may have been present in Jersey as early as 1430

This lineage is recorded:

  • 1 Nicholas Guerdain (1430- ) m Jennette Gruchy (1434- )
    • 2 Perrin Guerdain (1462- ) m Perrotte (1467- )
      • 3 Basilia Guerdain (1490- ) m Philippe Le Boutillier of Trinity

Perrin (1490- ) who was the father of Michelle (1520- ) who married Jean Le Breton may have been the son of Perrin above

  • Le Quesne and Dixon's book The de Gruchys of Jersey shows a marriage between Jeanette (abt 1470- ) and Nicolas Guerdain. Jeanette is the sister of Robin, born 1465, who is in turn the son of Matthieu (1435- ) and Marguerite Poingdestre. No other Jeanette is shown in the book.

However this lineage is also recorded:

  • 1 Nicholas Guerdain (1516- ) of St Martin m Jeanette de Gruchy (1520- )
    • 2 Denis Guerdain (1542- ) Trinity
    • 2 Michel Guerdain (1549- ) m Catherine Coutanche (1552-1621) d of Romyen
      • 3 Michel Guerdain (1567-1600) m Martha Stocall (1567- ) d of Aaron and Pauline Bertram
        • 4 Pauline Guerdain (1599-1654) m Noe Noel
    • 2 Perrin Guerdain (1551- )
    • 2 Miss Guerdain (1553- )

In some references Nicholas's wife is shown as Jeannette Gruchy but it seems likely that she was a de Gruchy and that the Nicholas Guerdain shown in these two lineages is one and the same person, and that the truth about his dates lies somewhere between the two.
