Descendants of Noel Gouffini

This family came to Jersey from Brittany. We spent a considerable amount of time in 2017 checking a submitted tree and are still not fully confident in what is shown.

Researching the lineage is complicated by the number of Jean Francois who appear to be shown as Francois Jean in some records, and Jean Francois or Jean Marie, who are just shown as Jean.

Jean Marie's (Gen 2) first wife appears to have died, possibly in childbirth, in 1876, but his first child by his second wife was born in the same year, which is puzzling. We previously showed Jean Francois and Francois Jean, at generation 2, as the same person, married twice, supported by online tree information, but it is now clear from Census returns that they were different people.

Francois Jean was living with his family in Trinity in 1911, and Jean Francois was living in St Martin. We believe that all these Gouffinis have a common ancestor in Noel Gouffini. We have found the wedding record for Jean Marie to Esther Norman, which shows that he was born in Tresignol, Cotes d'Armor, Brittany, the son of Noel, but his name is spelt Goufinic and Tresignol does not appear to have ever existed. Our research has not been helped by the fact that the French Geneanet database holds no records for this name.

The only Gouffinis in the site are those from Jersey's 1901 census

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.
