Descendants of Francois Du Val

This tree was added to the site in 2012 and reviewed in 2018. Further research in 2020 questioned the accuracy of the middle of the tree.

Francois (1773-1773) in generation 5 was not the son of Philippe and Susanne Le Rossignol, but of Jean and Marie Piton, and we have not been able to confirm that he had a twin brother Francois. The second Francois in this generation (1776-1776) is now believed to have survived to adulthood and married.

The other children in generation 5 do belong to Philippe and Susanne. There was some suspicion that Philippe was the son of another Philippe, but that has now been disproved, and we believe that the ancestry shown here is accurate.

A new tree - Descendants of Philippe Duval - has been added showing the now discredited alternative view of the ancestors and descendants of Philippe, and this tree has been expanded to show the descendant line identified from his son Francois

A further review of Du Val trees in 2021 resulted in the move of a descendant branch from Philip and Jane Scott at generation 6 from Descendants of Jean du Val to this tree

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. Does not belong here
  2. No record found
  3. Did not die in infancy as previously believed, but appears to have married either Elizabeth Gruchy or Elizabeth de Gruchy. The identity of Francois' wife is a mystery. There is no record of his marrying, but there are baptism records for the four children shown below, all of them showing Elizabeth de Gruchy as mother in our database. However, a check in the parish registers reveals that the mother is named as Elizabeth Gruchy in the 1817 baptism record of Anne, and de Gruchy in the other three baptism records. The only Elizabeth de Gruchy born in 1770 married Philippe Alexandre, and died still married to him in 1807. There is no burial record for an Elizabeth, nee Gruchy, around this time. Only one online tree purports to show a marriage between Francois and Elizabeth, naming her as de Gruchy (1770-1817). However, the ancestry shown for Elizabeth is so full of errors that no reliance can be placed on the tree
