Matthieu Le Geyt 1777-1849 poet

Matthew Le Geyt was the first poet to publish in Jèrriais following the introduction of printing. The earliest dated piece of his writing comes from 1795. He was from St Helier, but he must also have lived in Trinity, where he was a Vingtenier.

He was the son of Matthieu and Marie Dumaresq.
