Descendants of Clement Bisson

The research behind this and related trees was finally found in 2018 to be completely incorrect. The tree will be deleted in due course, but for the time being we are leaving it here together with the original notes below.

There seem to be more problems with Bisson trees starting with a Clement than with most of the remaining 3,000 or so Bissons born in Jersey put together. We are working on trying to untangle the knots in Bisson ancestries in the 18th centuries, but meanwhile we felt that this submitted tree should be included, with our comments.

It conflicts with our existing tree, which seems to fit much better with parish church records. The submitted tree is very confused at generation 4, showing two simultaneous marriages for Clement (1816- ) with children appearing under both. We are satisfied that this Clement was only married once and have shown those children who we believe are correctly linked to the marriage.

Clement at the head of the tree was probably born in 1736 in St Peter, the son of Jean and an unknown wife. There is no record of his marriage to Marie Anne Raymond. The birth record for Clement Bisson, born in St Peter in 1788/9 shows his mother to be Marie William. A St Saviour register entry shows them married there in 1788.

Another tree shows Clement at generation 1 born in Quebec, Canada in 1740 and marrying Marie Anne Raymond, before coming to Jersey where their son Clement was born in 1788. We can find no record of a Clement Bisson being born in St Brelade at this time.

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.
