Descendants of John Fenton

This family came to Jersey from Waterford in Ireland. When they arrived their surname was spelt Fenten, but it changed over generations to Fenton, with some church register entries and other documents showing Fentin and Fentum. Two members of generation 4 who served in the Middlesex Regiment in World War 1 were recorded as Fenton. Generations 3 and 4 spent some time in Guernsey at the beginning of the 20th century, but returned to Jersey
