Descendants of Jean Le Geyt
TreeIcon.png


Maufant branch of Le Geyt dit Le Maillier

This tree was added to the site in 2019 by Guy Dixon. It was researched with those of most other Le Geyt families, prior to a talk delivered on 29 April 1996 to the Channel Islands Family History Society, entitled The Le Geyts of Jersey. At that time, post-1842 births, marriages and deaths were not readily available, so 19th century dates of birth, on this tree, were necessarily estimated from ages given in census returns. The most up to date census record then available was that of 1891

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 www.jerripediabmd.net. 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. Of La Guillaumerie, Maufant
  2. See R.P.29/260 (1716) for Jeanne Bertram`s siblings. They were Elizabeth Bertram (1680- ), wife of Clement Le Bourdon, Felice Bertram (1683- ), wife of François Pirouet and Marie Bertram (1687- ), wife of Matthieu de Gruchy. Three other children predeceased their parents. Cousins in Grouville included members of the Payn family who feature as Bertram godparents, Thomas Payn having married in 1615 Susanne, daughter of Jacques Bertram and Jeanne Le Febvre. Thomas Payn`s son, Thomas junior, is mentioned in this context in the 1668 Extente. Engraved on the Maufant property of Jean Le Geyt and Jeanne Bertram is: "ILG.IBT 1718"
  3. Of La Guillaumerie, Maufant
  4. Marguerite Estur was a sister of the Reverend Philippe Estur (1695-1719) and of Edouard Estur, Constable of St Saviour: ABSJ, V, 224-225. Her maternal uncle was the Reverend Philippe Falle M.A., Historian of Jersey
  5. Jean Le Geyt featured in what was to be the second of three major economic setbacks to hit the Le Geyts dit Le Maillier, albeit not all in the same branch. Facing insolvency in 1799, on the 17th October he sold his home, La Guillaumerie, and all his land, totalling 30 vergées, to Edouard Falle, son of Edouard, son of Philippe [R.P.88/231]. The decision to do so seems to have been precipitous, as none of his sons had been apprenticed to trades or trained in any skills; indeed, his eldest son had only married four months before! Jean, himself, must have taken it badly or was already ill, as he died four months afterwards. Falle`s 19th century descendant in a female line, Le Cornu, then built a new and larger house, of Victorian character, 200 metres north of the old house. This bore the name of the older house but, to distinguish one from the other, was called La Guillaumerie Farm. The older house had probably received its name in the 19th century from the road, La Rue de la Guillaumerie, which passed inbetween these properties and what was doubtless the actual Guillaume property, La Vieille Guillaumerie, on the east side of the road. It should be noted though, that in the 1799 sale of Jean Le Geyt`s house and land, the former was described as his "Maison de Gallie", having retained the name, it is believed, of a tenant living in 1671, when the house was mentioned in an Appairiement as belonging to Abraham Le Geyt but described as his "Maison de Gallie". The fine old house, with its decorated carved lintels and chamfers, was to become, under English ownership, the quaintly named "Guillaumerie Cottage"
  6. Richard Falle of St Martin was probably baptised there in 1729, the son of Richard Falle and Rachel Jennes, his wife
  7. Lived variously in St Martin, St Saviour and Grouville

Jean thus finally received an inheritance. Jean was in 1849 a "Seaman", aged 36, who had first went to sea in the rating "Boy" in 1825. His declared date of birth was May 1813 at St Saviour, Jersey. He had, in fact, added a year to his age--not uncommon in sailors--as he was really born there in May 1814. He was 5 foot 7 inches tall, with brown hair and blue eyes. A distinguishing Mark was a "Ship," presumably tattooed, on his right arm: Britain: Merchant Seamen 1835-1851, at www.findmypast.com. His and his wife`s absence from all future censuses, suggests they may have left the Island

The three who had died will have included Mary`s youngest, Alfred Charles, who was absent from the family by the time of the 1901 census. The eldest, also called Alfred, shown in the 1881 census, but not on the tree above, was aged 7 to Henry William`s 6 years of age in 1881.
