Descendants of Nicholas Guerdain

This tree was one of the earliest added to the site in 2010.

There is much confusion about the early members of the Guerdain family who may have been present in Jersey as early as 1430

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.

This lineage is recorded:

  • 1 Nicholas Guerdain (1430- ) m Jennette Gruchy (1434- )
    • 2 Perrin Guerdain (1462- ) m Perrotte (1467- )
      • 3 Basilia Guerdain (1490- ) m Philippe Le Boutillier of Trinity

Perrin (1490- ) who was the father of Michelle (1520- ) who married Jean Le Breton may have been the son of Perrin above

  • Le Quesne and Dixon's book The de Gruchys of Jersey shows a marriage between Jeanette (abt 1470- ) and Nicolas Guerdain. Jeanette is the sister of Robin, born 1465, who is in turn the son of Matthieu (1435- ) and Marguerite Poingdestre. No other Jeanette is shown in the book.

However this lineage is also recorded:

  • 1 Nicholas Guerdain (1516- ) of St Martin m Jeanette de Gruchy (1520- )
    • 2 Denis Guerdain (1542- ) Trinity
    • 2 Michel Guerdain (1549- ) m Catherine Coutanche (1552-1621) d of Romyen
      • 3 Michel Guerdain (1567-1600) m Martha Stocall (1567- ) d of Aaron and Pauline Bertram
        • 4 Pauline Guerdain (1599-1654) m Noe Noel
    • 2 Perrin Guerdain (1551- )
    • 2 Miss Guerdain (1553- )

In some references Nicholas's wife is shown as Jeannette Gruchy but it seems likely that she was a de Gruchy and that the Nicholas Guerdain shown in these two lineages is one and the same person, and that the truth about his dates lies somewhere between the two.
