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

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. The bearer of a most unusual Christian name in the Le Geyt family, this Rogier Le Geyt was almost certainly the man whose name features in the La Haule Contracts as living in 1522, namely Rogier Le Geyt dit Le Maillier (son of Janyn), who was of the same generation and location. Indeed, the descendants of the Rogier Le Geyt who features on this page, lived less than 100 metres away from the Le Geyts dit Le Maillier, who lived at La Grande Rue du Mont à L`Abbé, at what is today called "Chestnut Farm." Rogier`s family land also adjoined that of the other Le Geyts. It should be noted that with these `alias` surnames, the `alias` appears and disappears regularly in court and church records and could also vary, as one origin of these names was to differentiate between one branch and another of the same family. Rogier Le Geyt`s branch of the family lived at the property later called Sunningdale, and now Uplands situated on the above road. He probably married twice, as shown above, which would account for the form of his descendants` 16th century surname, whereas he remained, after 1522, merely "Le Geyt"
  2. Messervy researched the Le Geyts dit Maret. In doing so, he believed Catherine had died without issue. She is now known to have had issue, which can be seen above
  3. There were several actions before the Cour d`Héritage (henceforth written "CH") regarding Jean Le Feuvre`s wife and children; these started in 1525, so he must have died about then. At first Matthieu Le Geyt dit Le Maillier was the children`s meneur (guardian), which tends to confirm the parentage and origin of the children`s grandfather, Rogier Le Geyt. By 1533, Jacques Le Geyt was the guardian. The children had descendants, as shown
  4. Before the court in 1587 [CH 5/153], was "Pierre Le Geyt, fils Jacques, fils Rogier" standing for his immediate family against (translated) "Jean Homar, in right of his mother and Charles Briard, in right of his wife, [these being] daughters of Catherine Le Geyt, daughter of the said Rogier, regarding the [latter`s] inheritance"
  5. Of age by 1533, regarding the guardianship of his sister Catherine`s children, in 1536 [CH] he was required to recognize Collas Le Geyt as being of his immediate blood, to share in their mutual paternal inheritance. It appears from the CH (1540) that he was "Sergent," St Helier. From the CH (November 1547), we find that his wife was a relative of Sire Guillaume Le Feuvre, priest
  6. "Pierre Le Geyt, fils Jacques, fils Rogier", in the case in 1587, above. His partage mentions two sons, Jacques and Jean
  7. Engraved on Sunningdale, Mont à L'Abbé: "ILG MH 1678". This was not for Jacques and his wife, but for his son Jean Le Geyt and his mother. Jacques, one of the Sermentés for the Extente of 1668, had died shortly after that work
  8. Greffier and Jurat; Seigneur of the Fief ès Cras. Marie Hue was the grand-daughter of Hugh de Soulemont and Jeanne Le Geyt dit Le Maillier. Furthermore her sister, Jeanne Hue, married in 1658 Noé Le Geyt (dit Le Maillier) of La Chasse, Maufant
  9. Of London (1685)
  10. Grandparents of Charles Le Marinel, Constable of St Helier, 1782-1785)
  11. Former Catholic priests, at the time of the Protestant Reformation, had the option to marry, as did Martin Luther
  12. A land transaction by way of partage was recorded in 1578, [La Haule Contracts] : "Jeanne Le Geyt, wife of Clement Coulomp, only daughter and heiress of Nicolas (the Collas of 1536) Le Geyt, son of Rogier and of Rauline his wife, daughter of John Helles, sells to Jacques Maret alias Le Geyt, principal heir of Rogier Le Geyt, her part of the inheritance"
