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.

Notes and References

  1. The genealogy in the first four generations, and the previous two generations Descendants of Raulet Le Geyt - 2, is the published research of the late Jersey genealogist, the Rev J A Messervy (ABSJ V, 230-250). Messervy, in commom with most other early 20th century researchers, regrettably omitted his sources. At this date, prior to many of the earlier surviving church registers and to the start of the Land Registry (Registre Public) in 1602, researchers in Jersey, such as Messervy, used the records of the Cour d`Héritage, Cour de Câtel and the Cour du Samedi, among which will be the sources relating to this and the above Le Geyt tree. A date of birth, without a church record, will have been derived from these court records or the Land Registry, which frequently mention a person having come of age, which in Jersey was at the age of 20. An approximate date of death is derived from a division in court of a person`s real estate, which indicates their death
  2. St Helier death record found
  3. Godel?
  4. Fils Jean, fils Jean
  5. Richard Le Geyt and his brother Pierre fils Jean, fils Jean had as godparents Noé Godel and Richard Godley (Godel?)
  6. Settled in Trinity. The Land Registry has the following: RP 12/198 (1642) François Le Sueur sells to Philippe Le Geyt, son of Jean, Le Clos du Brun in the parish of Trinity and partly in St Helier, on the Fiefs of Mélèches and Dièlament. Also RP 13/74 (1646) Philippe Bisson, son of Michel, sold to Philippe Le Geyt, son of Jean and of Elizabeth Sarre, his wife, Le Clos de La Messe, indicating foundations of a previous structure, such as a mill, in Trinity, on the Fief des Augrès, for the price of 3 Quartiers, annual wheat rente
  7. Described usually, in records, as "Philippe Rauvet junior", from the surname of this Le Geyt family, used intermittently, Le Geyt dit Rauvet and Rauvet dit Le Geyt
  8. Josué's christening, in 1664, reads "Josué fils Philippe Rauvet", an example of the rather slack clerical use of alias surnames in the 17th century. Le Geyt dit Rauvet, Rauvet dit Le Geyt, or even merely Rauvet, were commonplace and interchangeable
  9. Resettled in St Helier
  10. Jeanne Le Geyt dit Rauvet buried at St Helier, 6 August 1753, was the last mention in official records of this surname linked to Le Geyt
  11. Died without issue: RP 27/67 (1700) Philippe Le Geyt, Jeanne Le Geyt and Elizabeth Le Geyt, authorised by her husband, Jean Le Breton, the said Jeanne and Elizabeth being daughters of the late Nicolas Le Geyt and the said Philippe and Nicolas Le Geyt, being sons of the late Philippe Le Geyt and of the deceased Elizabeth de la Haye, his wife; the said Philippe junior and the said Jeanne and Elizabeth, all three being tenants of the inheritance of Jean Buesnel, son of Clement, sell to Jean Alexandre, son of Jean, the house that belonged to the said Elizabeth de la Haye, in Croiserie, Trinity. A family sale of inherited real estate, such as this, could not exclude Jeanne and Elizabeth`s elder brother, Jean (generation 6), without mentioning the reason, unless he had died by then without issue. Note a) Jeanne would marry, a year afterwards, Hugh Richardson; b) Elizabeth`s husband, Jean Le Breton, is again mentioned as being Jean in R.P.27/68, yet erroneously as "Philippe" Le Breton in R.P. 27/76
  12. Settled in Trinity. The Land Registry has the following: R.P. 14/370 (1651) Me Hugh Lemprière, in right of Elizabeth Le Breton, daughter of Jean, son of Pierre, sells to Thomas Le Geyt, son of Jean, Le Clos de La Messe to the west of the house of Susanne Le Breton, in Trinity, Fief des Augrès. Also, R.P. 15/4 (1652) Susanne Le Breton, wife of Daniel Bisson, sells to Thomas Le Geyt, son of Jean, [further] land. R.P. 20/298 (1673) Collette Le Sueur, daughter of Philippe sells to Thomas Le Geyt, son of Jean, Le Clos de Romeril, in Trinity, on the above fief. Again, R.P. 17/83 (1655) Susanne Le Sueur, wife of Thomas Le Geyt, sells to Philippe Le Boutillier, son of Jean, son of Philippe, rente to be collected on the property of her elder brother. Susannee Le Sueur and her siblings `partage` (divide) their parental inheritance, as recorded in 1652 (R.P. 15/64), her siblings being Matthieu, with Philippe, Mabel (wife of Nicolas Le Quesne) and Elizabeth (wife of Philippe Gallichan)
  13. Godparents: Matthieu Le Sueur and his wife [Marie Beaucamp]
  14. Godparents: "Thomas Le Geyt, grand-père et la femme de Moise Cabot, grande-mère"
  15. His godfather was Elie Le Geyt (his uncle
  16. Cour d`Héritage (16/01/1734): "Grace Le Geyt, fille et seule héritière de feu Elie Le Geyt, qui était fils ainé [dudit] Thomas Le Geyt"
  17. R.P.29/201 (1714) Thomas Le Geyt, son of Thomas, sells to François Le Geyt, his son, his house and land, including Le Clos de Romeril, in Trinity, Fief des Augrès, near the house of Elie Bisson
  18. Veuve
  19. Elie Le Geyt, who was described in 1750, in Volume 36 of the Cour du Câtel as "Elie Le Geyt dit Rauvet, fils François", was a Mariner. His death is thus described (translated) in the Trinity Register (March 1759): "Elie Le Geyt, Jean du Feu son of Benjamin, Clement Jeune jr., Charles Nicolle son of Jean and Thomas Godfray son of Philippe--these last five burials came about as a result of deaths aboard two privateers which were engulfed by the St Aubin`s [Bay] by a great storm ("tempest") which struck during the night of the 9th to the 10th of the said month. They perished [on the rocks] at Elizabeth Castle, where several others perished with them": Trinity Register, 11/03/1759. The St Brelade Burials` Register adds further detail, namely that nearly 60 men perished and that the two vessels were in St Aubin`s Roads ready to sail when the storm struck. They dragged their anchors and were wrecked on the rocks at Elizabeth Castle. The St Brelade dead were named as Moise Dumaresq son of William, Jean Horman son of Jean, Jean de Carteret and Philippe Le Feuvre dit Filliastre son of Jean. These accounts are of particular interest as they indicate how, on a small island, a disaster such as the above would affect the entire community
  20. Le Riolet dit L`Hermitte: an old surname, found in St Saviour in the late 16th century; it has long been extinct in the Island but survives in England, among the descendants of an 18th century Jerseyman, who settled in Middlesex [Burke`s Landed Gentry, (various editions) and Walford`s County Families of the United Kingdom, (1897), 617; inter alia]. Elizabeth was one of the last of her surname in Jersey. It survived, however, as a Christian name. Elizabeth`s grand-daughter, Jeanne Le Geyt, wife of Captain Elias de Gruchy, must have encouraged her own daughter, Lydia Jane de Gruchy, wife of W.J. Ogier, Ecrivain, to pass the name to a son of hers, hence the middle name of the future advocate and German internee, Léonce L`Hermitte Ogier, (q.v.)
  21. Master mariner
  22. Formerly of Alderney; Upholsterer
  23. Mariner, died at Rio de Janeiro: Memorial Inscription, Green Street, St Helier, which records the deaths of others among his siblings
  24. Of Laurel Lands, Maufant; Master Mariner
  25. Master mariner in the employment of Messrs Orange and Briard. Master of `Amicus` (1862-1864) and of the full-rigged 655 ton ship `Fort Regent` (1864-1868)
  26. Master Mariner
  27. OV; of 1, Queen's Rd, St Helier; MRCS, LRCP (London)
  28. Captain, Cheshire Regiment Regiment
  29. OV; of HM Colonial Service, Tanganyika
  30. OV; Commander, RN
  31. OV; no issue
  32. OV; Lieutenant, RN; settled in Esquimalt, British Columbia after WW2, [Turk, Marion, The Quiet Adventurers in Canada, (Detroit: Harlo, 1979), 337. However, he died in 2000 at Bodmin District, Cornwall

  34. Died an infant
  35. OV; died in Truro, Cornwall with no issue
  36. Mariner; died at San Salvador, Brazil
  37. Pilot, Merchant Service. He was, on his death in 1873 aged 85, described in the Chroniques de Jersey as the "doyen of Freemasons in Jersey, 58 years a Freemason"
  38. Master Mariner in the Honduras trade. The latter was a lucrative trade in mahogany, mostly conducted at this date by the Jersey merchant firm, A. de Ste Croix, and by their captains. He was latterly described as having been a "Merchant", at the time of his son Philippe`s marriage (1866)
  39. George Le Geyt took his second wife to sea with him; two of their children were born in the Bay of Honduras. He may therefore also have taken to sea his first wife, Elizabeth Roissier. This could account for the absence of any Jersey burial entry relating to her
  40. R.P. 285/252
  41. Census entries from St Helier tell us that George Henry and his sister, Anne, were born in the "Bay of Honduras". He inherited `Belize House`, 13, Great Union Road, St Helier: R.P.224/91 (1861), which gives an approximate date of death for his father. On the marriage certificate of George Henry`s son Samuel (1888), the father is described as "Independent, deceased". Absent from most censuses and not featuring in local lists of Master Mariners, George Henry was probably employed either ashore, in the Canadian fisheries, or before the mast, as a mariner. His own property was divided between his two sons in 1884, indicating his approximate date of death. His wife, Bertha, was described in the `partage` as being a widow. She was letting furnished apartments in most censuses, which was no doubt the source of her husband having been described as "Independent"
  42. A clerk in 1888 and 1894, he was in 1901 the Licensed Victualler of the British Hotel, in Beaumont, St Peter. He moved to England where he was a commercial clerk in 1911, working for a Fruit and Potato Merchant. He died in the Scunthorpe district, Lincolnshire
  43. Of West End Hotel, Great Union Road, Grocer and Publican
  44. Matilda and George Henry filled in the 1911 Census Return that they had been married 10 years, but were without children
  45. Bertha Emma Le Geyt was no doubt named after her grandmother, Bertha Isabella Frederica Le Geyt, née Ogilvie. She might equally have been the daughter, not of George Henry, but of his brother Samuel; the register did not name the parents. However, Samuel`s wife, in the 1911 Census of Crosby, near Scunthorpe, stated that they had had four children, three were living and one dead. These are all accounted for. Bertha Emma died of consumption, aged 1 year 4 1/2 months
  46. Of 11, Colomberie, St Helier; Grocer (Le Geyt Bros.). He served in WW1 in the Royal Jersey Garrison Battalion
  47. Air Hostess in the 1950s. Hers was the last generation of the Le Geyt dit Rauvet family to be born in the Island, that family now being extinct in Jersey

  51. Of Guernsey, Jeweller
  52. Of 2, Queen Street, St Helier, Jeweller; unsuccessful candidate in an election for Jurat. Philippe prospered greatly, latterly owning Nos. 2, 4 and 6, Queen Street; Khartoum House, Plaisance Road, a house on St Saviour`s Road, bought by his father (Reg. Pub. 224/91) from Philippe`s uncle, Elie Le Geyt, which he inherited in 1861, and many other properties. His business was continued for a short time by his son-in-law, John Fouracre Cutler. By 1925, however, the Goldsmith`s Alliance was conducting business from 2, Queen Street, which later became Assinder`s. Philippe Le Geyt also bred poultry. His grandson in Australia, Herbert Le Geyt, had a a medal "won by P. Le Geyt", presented by the Aylesbury Food Co. Ltd. and a large silver pitcher presented in 1895 by John Le B. Chevalier, President of the Jersey Poultry and Ornithological Society, presumably to the same P. Le Geyt. Philippe`s Will was dated 24/10/1919
  53. Clarissa inherited in 1921 from her father Nos. 2, 4 and 6, Queen Street and 5, Beach Road

  61. "Soldier". There were three Trinity Jeanne Le Geyts who married at this period. They married Michel Amy (1734, Tr), William Bradshaw (1745, St Mt) and Philippe Le Cronier (1749, Tr). The three Jeanne Le Geyts were baptised (1714, St S), fille Abraham (dit Le Maillier; he being of Tr), (1715, Tr) fille François and (1726, Tr) fille Jean. The first of these Jeannes, on godparent evidence, married Michel Amy. Jeanne, who married Philippe Le Cronier had eleven children, the last baptised in 1772, so could not have been she who was baptised in 1715. The latter therefore married William Bradshaw
  62. "Veuve"
  63. Privateer Captain
  64. Settled in St Helier and died before 1730
  65. Registre Public 75/117; no issue

  67. These twins died prematurely
  68. No issue
  69. Settled in St Helier
  70. Godfather: Abraham Hérault, a Jurat and former Greffier, after whom this Abraham was evidently named. Hérault was probably a friend of the well-connected Sarre family. Note: The use for three generations in this branch of the Le Geyts dit Rauvet, of the Christian name Abraham, must not lead to their being confused with the bearers of the name Abraham in the Le Geyt dit Le Maillier family. The latter received the Christian name, quite separately, from an early 17th century uncle, Abraham Perrin, (q.v.)
  71. Settled in St Saviour. The St Martin marriage entry for Jacques usefully reads: "29/03/1671 Jacques Le Geyt, fils Abraham et Genette Le Breton, sa femme, de St Helier..."
  72. Settled in St Helier
  73. Lived in St John
  74. Godparents: Jean Le Geyt and his wife, of St Helier; Jean brother of the said Nicolas [the father]
