Descendants of Jean Giffard

The Giffard family was established in Jersey as early as the 16th century, although other branches moved from France much later. The birthplace and date of the Jean Giffard at the head of this tree are unknown, although he does appear to be a Jerseyman and to have married a Jerseywoman. Their son Jean is shown in the St Saviour marriage register to have been born in Waterford, Ireland, although he married in Jersey in 1787 and died there.

Edward Jean Giffard (gen 4) moved to Guernsey where he became a printer and newspaper editor
