Descendants of Jean Le Capelain


This is the family tree of the renowned Jersey artist John Le Capelain, born in London in 1812 to Jersey parents.

The Jean at the head of this tree, which was added to the site in 2014 and updated several times since, was previously shown in Descendants of Etienne Le Cappelain as the son of Huguenot refugee, who settled in St Peter. Although Etienne had a son Jean, born in Jersey in 1703, we now believe that he was not the Jean at the head of this tree, and that this Jean was probably born in France and arrived separately in Jersey, where he married Magdeleine Mallet in St Helier in 1730.

It is also quite likely that whereas Etienne's family name was spelt 'Le Cappelain', the Jean in this tree, or certainly his descendants, used the spelling 'Le Capelain'.

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

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.
