Descendants of Jacques Denize


There are several Denize records missing from the St Lawrence registers. We have assembled this tree in an attempt to show the descendancy of the family which owned and lived in Le Manoir du Fief es Neveux for some 600 years. Some generations are based on datestones on the property, others have been estimated where no records exist.

We believe that Jean Denize at generation 4 must have married for a second time. The St Lawrence baptism register shows three children of Jean and Marie de Ste Croix. Then there are several children naming just Jean as father after Marie's death in 1684. There is no record of the baptism of Jourdain at generation 5, but, if as is suggested in more than one history of the property, the manor passed from father to son through many generations, we believe that he must have been a child of Jean and a second wife. In the absence of further confirmation we have omitted any possible full siblings from this tree.

Those generations definitely linked to the manor by datestones or other histories are shown in red.

The Jean Esnouf Denise who had his own datestone erected at the manor in 1932 is a direct descendant of Jourdain and Marie at generation 7, but we have been unable to establish who his parents (and possibly grandparents) were in the generation(s) between.

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.
