Help! Grellier - Huguenots in Jersey
« on: Thursday 22 September 11 14:57 BST (UK) »
I am researching a family surnamed 'Grellier' who were Huguenots from Montcoutant in France.

There are references to a branch of this family living in Jersey in the early to mid 18th century and I'm wondering if they may be a missing link.

My assumption is that they lived in St Helier, though I am not certain of this. I would be very grateful if anyone would be willing to check for the following people in the christening records for that place:

1. Perine Grellier b c1725? daughter of James Grellier (she was married in London 1745)
2. Henry Grellier b c1730 (died London 1819 age 89)
3. Peter Paul Grellier b c1732 son of ?? (died in London 1804 age 72)
4. Jane Grellier b c1733 ?? sister of Peter Paul
5. Mary Grellier b c1735 sister of Peter Paul (died in London 1816 age 81)

- The will of Gabriel Grellier of London (dated 1740) mentions relatives James Grellier and Aimee widow of Paul Grellier both resident in Jersey.

If the records are indexed and there are not too many entries could I ask if a complete list be provided -assuming there are Grelliers in St Helier of course!

Any help in this matter is deeply appreciated.

John

The parish records have all been transcribed and are indexed alphabetically so even if the aren't in St Helier it shouldn't be difficult to find them,  if they are there.

There are later Grelliers listed on the Jersey Archive site, www.jerseyheritagetrust.jeron.je

Thank you for the information jerseylily. I have seen the information on the later Grelliers, but it is those from the 18th century that I am interested in.

Having re-read the will of Gabriel Grellier as referred to in my original posting I can see that the widow of Paul Grellier is in fact 'Janne' and not 'Aimee' as I first though.

'Thank you' in advance  to anyone willing to check these for me!

Dear John2o2o,

  I am a 5x great grandaughter of Peter Paul Grellier b. 1732, and brother to Jane and Mary. I don't know whether or not I can be of any assistance. E-mail me if you wish at (*).

Don't know if this is relevant. I found a Grellier listed as married to a Le Rossignol in https://www.theislandwiki.org/index.php/Descendants_of_Augustin_Le_Rossignol_(1564)

I'm new here and can't figure out how to reply to specific post. This is regarding John's inquiry on the Grellier's above. Jane Grellier from St.Helier, married to Jean Berteau, was my 3rd great grandmother. A sketch of her is in the Jersey Heritage museum, done by her son, Thomas Berteau around 1847. I don't have her birthdate, but may have been around late 1700's.
