de Gruchy 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.

  101. Thomas and Elizabeth disappeared from Jersey records in the 1780s. It is believed that they moved to New Brunswick and had there a further child, named Thomas. It is possible that this Thomas de Gruchy (1802-1849) was born of a second marriage of his father or that there is a missing generation in Canada, born about 1780. The parish registers of Grande Anse were destroyed, with the original church, by fire in the 1890s. The surname de Gruchy at this time was almost entirely limited to Jersey and to Jersey expatriates. In France the surname Gruchy was common in and around Normandy, having been borne by villagers from the various hamlets of the name, but the only de Gruchys or de Grouchys have been the small number of persons belonging to the noble family that originally owned these hamlets. The New Brunswick de Gruchys, living on the coast and initially employed in the fisheries, are seen to be inevitably from Jersey. The genealogy above is the research of Gerald Poirier of Grande Anse, New Brunswick, and is recorded here provisionally. All church ceremonies mentioned in this section of the genealogy took place in New Brunswick unless otherwise stated and are mostly from Grande Anse, from newspaper sources, censuses and random gleanings prior to the 1890s fire
  102. Sailor, drowned
  103. Widow, further marriage in 1850 to François Godin
  104. Of Laprairie, farmer, 1861. The gap between his parents` 1829 marriage and his 1838 birth suggests there may be children missing from the record
  105. Living 1881, as were his siblings
  106. Construction overseer. He oversaw the construction of many churches in New Brunswick and the reconstruction of that of Grande Anse
  107. Drowned, Cap Tourmentine
