Descendants of Daniel Brohier


This Jerripedia family tree was first added to the site in 2016. It was reviewed in 2018 and 2021. It was submitted by a user and has been cross-checked against church and parish records.

There was a problem concerning the marriages of Cyrus Brohier at generation 3. As far as we have been able to ascertain, there was only ever one Cyrus living in Jersey at this time and he married both Marie Tapin and Elizabeth de Carteret. However, the transcription of the St Saviour marriage register shows the marriage to Marie on 20 February 1698/99 and the marriage to Elizabeth on 18 October 1698/99.

Under the Julien calendar there was no such date as 18 October 1698/99 (only dates in January-March were shown with both years), and February 1698 fell after October 1698. The way the dates were transcribed made it impossible to determine which marriage came first, but either way the dates do not tie in with the dates shown for Cyrus' children in the baptism register.

This shows two children by Marie Tapin born in 1700 and 1702 and two by Elizabeth de Carteret born in 1712 and 1715. This suggests that the marriage date shown for Elizabeth is wrong, and that has been confirmed (2018) by reference to the original registers. Marie Tapin died in 1710, which, together with the baptism records, is consistent with a second marriage to Elizabeth in about 1711, which is what we have now discovered, and justifies what was previously shown in the tree.

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
