Descendants of Pierre Renouf


This tree, which can be found in the Jersey Archive as part of a set of trees related to the d'Authreau family, and was added to the site in 2013, is a match for Descendants of Pierre Renouf (1579) which was one of the first trees added to Jerripedia in 2010. However, the two trees differ in important respects.

The new tree shows Pierre (gen 1) as the son of Jean Renouf rather than another Pierre, and this is confirmed by the St Saviour baptism register.

Pierre (1675- ) is shown here as marrying Apoline Chevalier, whereas the earlier tree shows a marriage to Jeanne Luce, with different children.

We were previously reluctant to say categorically which of the two trees was the more accurate, but suggested that this version, which is a significantly larger and longer tree, is the better one to follow.

However, we were sent a third suggested descendancy in 2016, and this suggests that Pierre (gen 1) was the son of another Pierre, and that his father was Jean, born in Guernsey in 1546, and married there to Girette Navetel in 1575. That tree is included as Descendants of Jean Renouf of Guernsey.

Once again, we are unable to be certain about which of the three trees is most likely to be correct, but we have to say that we now lean towards the first and third, which agree on early generations, apart from the spelling of some names

Some details have not been added to this tree, which is no longer being updated, but can be found in the other trees

Update 2021 - We have been sent another tree which shows a completely different ancestry for Pierre (gen 6) who married Elizabeth Romeril in St Lawrence in 1739. That tree shows Pierre descended from a Guernsey family, but not the same is the existing Descendants of Jean Renouf of Guernsey. We are unable to say categorically which of the differing views about the ancestry of Pierre (gen 3) is correct and have added the new tree - Descendants of James Renouf - while undertaking further research. Any assistance which researchers into these early Renouf generations are able to offer will be most welcome

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.
