Descendants of Robert Keeping
TreeIcon.png


This family came to Jersey from Hampshire. We have checked the tree against Jersey records and, wherever possible, earlier generations in Hampshire. It has taken several hours to unravel an inordinately complicated tree, which was supported by some online trees which have glaring errors.

It is probable that the Michael Keeping who married Charlotte Ninnim in 1841 is the same person who married Ester Nancy Pallot in 1855, but some of his children in the submitted tree have been shown born to both wives. We have assumed that if he was married first to Charlotte Ninnim, and then to Esther Pallot in 1855, any children born before 1855 must have belonged to Charlotte. By the 1861 census Esther is shown as Michael's wife, and the five children who must have been born to Charlotte, are in Michael and Esther's household.

Michael's son Lewis Michael Ninnim Keeping is even more complicated. It is suggested that he was married twice and had three children from each marriage which overlap. The family return in the 1881 Jersey census shows Lewis and Emma living in St Helier with children born in Jersey and London, and with Lewis' brother John, probably Philip John. By the 1891 census Emma has disappeared and Lewis has a new wife, Harriet, 14 years younger than him, and too young to be the mother of any of his children.

To add to all the confusion there is another tree at Ancestry which suggests that the five children shown as born to Michael and Charlotte Ninnim were not their children at all, but the children of Robert Keeping, also of Boldre, Hampshire, and Elizabeth Peckham. Because the children were born in St Brelade, the parish birth index does not identify who their parents were, but there is no sign of the family of Robert and Elizabeth in the 1861 census, which, as we have said above, shows the five children as belonging to Michael Keeping.

Further research on a second Keeping tree has shown that the two Keeping men, Michael and John, who moved to Jersey from the Ringwood and Boldre districts of Hampshire in the 1840s, were brothers. Other trees we have found online take this one further back and show both brothers. But we still have concerns about the accuracy of some of our sources, so rather than rewrite this tree to extend it further back, we have created links between the two trees.

Some sources show Robert Keeping at the head of the tree marrying twice and having six children by Joan Peke, but David, at generation 2, by second wife Mary Rumball. However, we have now established that Mary Rumbold was Robert's first wife, and that she died five months after their marriage and had no children.

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 www.jerripediabmd.net. 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.
