Descendants of Benest Le Brocq

This tree is based on original research by the Rev J A Messervy, with subsequent amendment and additions by Guy Dixon. Early dates are very approximate and in some cases death dates correspond with last known living dates of the individual. The tree was further expanded in 2020 by Guy Dixon with the addition of a descent from Philippe (1646-1709) at generation 6

A further review in 2022, by Mike Bisson resulted in the addition of a four-generation descent from Jean (1775- ) at generation 10

Notes and references

  1. Dénonciateur of the Royal Court 1462
  2. Jurat and Lieutenant-Bailiff
  3. Procureur of St Ouen 1545; Constable of St Ouen -1552-81-1586; 1592-95
  4. Widow of Jean Hacquoil. Matthieu Le Brocq had no issue of this marriage
  5. Constable of St Ouen 1537-1542. This Jean (Johan) de Caen, who had married Guillemine Herivel, daughter of Nicolas, died in or about 1543. His elder son and principal heir was Jacques de Caen; Simon de Caen and other younger children received part of the inheritance
  6. Seigneur de Samarès, Jurat
  7. Rector of St Clement
  8. Principal heiress of her sister
  9. Seigneur du Fief ès Payns, Constable of St Ouen
  10. In a genealogy by the late Dr Frank Le Maistre, OBE, there was shown a mistaken, post-Reformation, descent for George. However, there was a lengthy action before the Cour d`Héritage, regarding the inheritance of Matthieu Le Brocq and of his two Syvret wives. No descendants of George were ever mentioned
  11. She married secondly Michel Dauvergne
  12. "Jean Le Brocq fs William," Sermenté for the Extente, 1668. He made his Will in 1669, within five months of his death, which may account for the ill man`s mark at the foot of the page, [D/Y//A/1/87, at the Jersey Archive]. His second son, named Jacques, was not previously known and though the genealogist Messervy knew there was a daughter, her name was unknown to him. This Will names her as Noémi, the wife of Elie Le Cornu. The testator was in 1661 godfather to their daughter, Jeanne Le Cornu. His son Jean, had predeceased him. One has the impression that his sons William and Philippe had already been benefited by their father, which might explain their names being absent
  13. "Matthieu Le Brocq de La Vilaise", buried 1695. Matthieu may have been previously married, prior to his 1651 marriage to Catherine de la Perrelle. The St Ouen`s Register has in 1640, the burial of Jacques Le Brocq fils Matthieu
  14. Jeanne Le Brocq, widow of Philippe de la Perrelle, made her Will in 1668, [D/Y/A/1/112, at the Jersey Archive]. She mentions numerous friends and relatives. Her eldest daughter, Catherine, wife of Matthieu Le Brocq, is mentioned, as are the testatrix`s grandchildren through Catherine. These were Jean, Jeanne, Matthieu and Philippe, the second and third of whom do not feature as having been christened in the St Ouen register. A witness was Elie Le Cornu, her son-in-law`s brother-in-law, whose family lived also at La Villaise
  15. Christened as "Jean fils de Matthieu Le Brocq, fils Jean" with godparents Jean Le Brocq, Grand-Père and Jeanne Le Brocq, femme de Philippe de la Perrelle, Grande-Mère. Buried as "Jean Le Brocq, fils Matthieu, de la Vilaise"
  16. Godfather: Matthieu Le Brocq, Grandfather, and his wife
  17. Godparents: Samuel du Heaume and his wife, who was Susanne Le Brocq, first cousin of the baby`s father. The younger Susanne was buried as "Susanne, daughter of the late Jean Le Brocq fils Matthieu, de la Villaise"
  18. "Fille feu Jean Le Brocq fils Mathieu", baptised 14th May 1693. Her godparents were Nicolas du Heaume and his wife
  19. Maternal first cousin of Jeanne Le Brocq, his wife
  20. "Fils 2e né" of Jean Le Brocq: Will of the latter, dated 1669. Jacques may either have married late in life or had Susanne by a second marriage. He and his unnamed wife were godparents to his sister Noémi`s daughter and namesake, Noémi, written as "Noémin", in 1659
  21. Buried as "Jean Le Brocq fs Jean, d`auprès de l`Eglise"
  22. Buried as "Marie, vve Jean Le Brocq, d`auprès du Temple" (Eglise)
  23. Presumably d`auprès de l`Eglise
  24. Buried in 1709 as "Philippe Le Brocq fils Jean, des Vaux"
  25. Marriage record not found, but Magdeleine Le Montais was buried on the 19/09/1720 as "veuve Philippe Le Brocq, des Vaux". Most of the grandchildren had Le Montais godparents
  26. Godparents: Jean Bailhache and Marguerite, wife of Jean Bailhache senior
  27. Of Les Vaux. The exact location of these "Vaux" was, from the christening of Marie Le Brocq, in 1715, at Grantez. One might suggest Les Vaux au Brocq [O.1734, 1735] below La Ville au Bas, where there is La Fontaine au Brocq, although this is just within Grande Cueillette, or the nearby Les Vaux Cuissin, which is within Grantez
  28. Of La Ville ès Neveus, St Ouen
  29. Baptised as "fille Philippe, fils Philippe, fils Jean, des Vaux, et de Jeanne Jean, sa femme." Godparents were Philippe Le Brocq and Magdaleine, sa femme-in fact, the grandparents
  30. Baptised as above. Godparents: Jean Le Montais of Grantez and Catherine Le Cornu, his wife
  31. Both Judith and her brother Jean, are described in the St Ouen register as children of "Philippe Le Brocq, des Vaux, et de Judith Baudet, sa femme"
  32. Marriage record: Son of Jean, son of Philippe
  33. Of Les Potirons, St Mary
  34. Of Les Potirons, St Mary
  35. Of Les Potirons, St Mary
  36. "Fils Philippe, fils Philippe, des Vaux et de Jeanne Jean, sa femme"
  37. Fille Philippe Le Brocq, fils Philippe, fils Jean, de Grantez et de Jeanne Jean, sa femme"
  38. Godparents: Jean Le Montais and his wife
  39. This marriage was recorded in both St Ouen and St Mary on the same day, the 20th November, the minister in the latter instance having been Philippe Le Couteur. The St Mary entry mentions L`Etacq as the groom`s address. Unfortunately, Marguerite is there recorded as Rachel, which belies mentions of her in legal documents. The couple had a son named Jean, "Jean junior" to his father`s "Jean senior"
  40. Died young. Seemingly, no other children are mentioned in the Registers as christened before the second William
  41. Drowned
  42. Founder of the business at The Yews, St Peter, 1680: Guy Dixon, A Brief History of The Yews, St Peter, in ABSJ (2014), 272-284
  43. Of Augerez, St Peter
  44. Of Grantez
  45. The 1708 Will of "Jean Le Brocq fils Philippe" mentions his wife Catherine Alexandre, but no children. His brother Philippe was a legatee, as was a nephew Jean, who was the testator`s godson and described as the son of [his late brother] William: D/Y/A/4/43 at the Jersey Archive
  46. Susanne Le Brocq, fille André, married secondly in 1722, Jacques Bailhache
  47. The Will of Jean Le Brocq, fils William, dated and proved in 1768, mentions his wife, his soeur de mère, being his half-sister on his mother`s side, named Judith Bailhache (1724-1798) and a niece named Marie Le Brocq, perhaps through Judith, if she had married a Le Brocq, although her burial entry only names her late father, Jacques Bailhache. The testator was of St Ouen; no children were mentioned. He appointed Charles Payn and Jean de la Perrelle as executors
  48. Noémi Le Brocq, wife of Elie Le Cornu, is mentioned in the Will of her father, Jean Le Brocq, dated 1669
  49. Of L'Etacq
  50. Their son Pierre, master mariner, died a prisoner on the Barbary Coast
  51. "D'auprès de L'Amiral, St Ouen
