Descendants of Pierre Amiraux


This Jerripedia family tree was first added to the site in 2016. It was submitted in limited form by a user and we have tried to expand it, using Jersey church records and by reference to online trees. However, we are far from confident in the results, mainly because of considerable confusion in online trees between the various Pierre Amiraux. We have tried to limit the confusion by eliminating those elements of the various trees which we are unable to confirm. See the family page for a more detailed analysis of this confusing descendancy

We revisited the tree in 2018 and added some details, but the difficulties recorded before remain unresolved

Amiraux 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. Silversmith and privateer captain. The 1772 date of death previously featured here, has to be for the wrong Pierre. This Pierre is shown as having issue by his second wife in 1779
  2. Banker, probably initially with his father, Pierre Amiraux, as Amiraux & Co., of the Vieux Marché. They were trading between 1797-1815- , as the Jersey Bank (Est. 1797). It became Amiraux, Le Breton & Co. Matthieu`s signature can be seen on one of the bank`s surviving £1 notes, dated 21 January 1815: A.L.T. McCammon, Currencies of the Anglo-Norman Isles, (London: Spink & Son), 216. Matthieu was also Receiver-General, 1823-1852
  3. Seigneur of Samares; Lieutenant-Colonel in the Militia. The marriage was recorded again in St Helier in 1831, for reasons which are unclear. Jacques Jean was then shown as James John
  4. Godmother in 1793 to her niece, Marie Ingouville and in 1797 to the latter`s sister, Elizabeth
