Nell ! .... you're doing double duty for me ... thank you !  :D

All my Groizards and Muels seem to have wonderful names  :)

I'm still not sure ... sorry to sound so blah !!!!!  I'll have to check back further maybe the 1851 would give his siblings ... maybe I can match up with them !

I just realised Nell that David did this for me a few years ago and I guess I never pursued anything further !

Funny that they've just popped up again !!

Hi Groizard and welcome to RootsChat !

Sorry I've been tardy answering your reply but this is the first time I've been on for a while !!  :-\

I'd love to know if this family is part of my Groizard family ... though I imagine the name Groizard is not uncommon there !

The Groizard you mentioned was my greatgrandfathers younger brother.  Jersey islanders usually see themselves as English more than french hence him joining the British Army. Though he may not have been living in jersey when he signed up.

The surname Groizard has links with the Isle de Groix which is off the coast of France, near the city of Lorient
