Descendants of Nicolas Poingdestre


This tree was added by Mike Bisson in 2023 from church records

Poingdestre family page and links to other trees

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.

Notes and references

  1. We have not been able to identify Nicolas' parents. There was a Nicolas born in Grouville in 1772, the son of Nicolas and Elizabeth Valpy, but he is believed to have married Jeanne Grandin in Grouville in 1793. They had seven children between 1794 and 1807, so Jeanne Journeaux could not have been Nicolas' second wife. Online trees almost exclusively show Nicolas, born in 1801, as the son of Nicolas and Jeanne Grandin, but that is wrong. He was definitely baptised in Grouville on 26 July 1801, the son of Nicolas and Jeanne Journeaux, as shown in this tree
  2. Shown in different records as Jeanne or Jeanneton
  3. Birth recorded in Grouville but no baptism record found. Possibly Methodist baptism
  4. Baptised on 20 February 1860, the illegitimate daughter of Jane Poingdestre
  5. Birth recorded in Grouville but no baptism record. Served in Royal Navy in Great War. Family group portrait on Poingdestre family page
  6. Twin
  7. Twin
  8. Entered the RN College Greenwich in 1925, passing out as a cadet in 1927. Killed while serving off Malta when his destroyer struck a British mine
  9. Birth recorded in Grouville but no baptism record
  10. Birth recorded in Grouville but no baptism record
