Notes and references

  1. John Gruchy, the eldest son, died without surviving issue. His name is linked in Jersey, with that of others, to a legendary luring ashore of a Spanish ship, with the loss of many lives. A curse by a drowning woman is said to have covered good farmland in the west of St Brelade, in sand-dunes. In fact, geologists have established that these dunes considerably pre-date John! Furthermore, neither he nor any of his fellow conspirators bore St Brelade surnames. Legends, though, do often bear some element of fact. Perhaps he was a well-known smuggler, whose activities were thus exaggerated?
  2. Living, of age, in 1549
  3. François was the eldest son in a case heard before the Royal Court in 1588
  4. The Armorial of Jersey, 189, erroneously calls him "Rev. Francis Grochie", probably confusing him with one of his clergyman cousins
  5. Vingtenier des Augrès, 1626
  6. Vingtenier des Augrès, 1647-65
  7. One of the leaders of the Trinity uprising in 1769; unsuccessful candidate for Jurat, 1769
  8. Charles Bisson was the great-nephew of Elizabeth Bisson, above
  9. Son of the Rector of Grouville
  10. Married twice, with issue in St John
  11. Vincent had no surviving issue. A case before the Cour d`Héritage in 1566 names his elder brother and principal heir as Lucas Gruchy and the other brothers as Sire Jean, Olivier and Pierre. This clarifies to which generation Pierre belongs
  12. Partage, dated 1610, (R.P.3/126), of the inheritance of Jean Gruchy, son of Pierre, between Jean Gruchy, or Grochy, elder son, and his co-heirs, Pierre Gruchy, Matthieu Gruchy and Philippe Gruchy, "all children of the said Jean and of Marie, his wife, daughter of Jean Coutance"
  13. The eldest son in the 1658 `partage` of "Philippe Gruchy fils Jean"
  14. From Philippe Gruchy is descended the Gruchy family of Champs Clairs, Trinity
  15. Marthe Gruchy, missed in some Gruchy genealogies, features with her brothers Jean, Pierre, Matthieu and Philippe in the partage of their father`s and grandparents` inheritances, which were dealt with at the same time [R.P.3/126 (1610)], although she and Philippe were still under the guardianship of Olivier Coutanche, a maternal relative. Apart from an income in rentes, significantly Marthe inherited 2 vergées 14 perches and 16 pieds in Le Clos de Lemprière. When she sold this in 1622 to Jean Gruchy fils François, it was as the wife of Jean Bisson, fils Leonard
  16. Regent of St Anastase 1592-5; Chaplain at Mont Orgueil, 1614
  17. Partage, dated 1610, (R.P.3/95), of the inheritance of Pierre Gruchy and of Katherine, his wife, between Jean Grochie, elder son of the late Jean Gruchy, who was the elder son of Pierre and of his said wife, Olivier Gruchy, younger son of the said Pierre, and Guillemette Gruchy, widow of Jean Dutot, daughter of the said Pierre and his wife. The land involved, Messervy comments, seems to be near Trinity Manor
  18. James was a sermenté in 1515, appearing before, and assisting, the Crown Commissioners. His name appears as "de Gruchy". This was probably correct, in his case and that of his father, Rauff, as this abbreviated form of an already long-established Jersey surname, had only just come into use. He had issue, which included a son, Andrée. From a legal transaction in 1525, we see James (sic) owned land in Trinity, as well as in St John, in which latter parish, he had descendants
  19. Descendants in St John
