‘Of the West’ in burial entries
« on: Tuesday 23 November 21 10:55 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

According to Jerripedia, Clement Noel was buried in St. Martin on the 5th of March 1814 and was ‘of the West’. His wife Elizabeth was buried there on the 4th of August 1804, recorded as the wife of Clement ‘of the West’. Does anyone know what this might mean? I know there was a West regiment of the Jersey militia, but St. Martin is in the east of the island.

I’d greatly appreciate any help!

St Martin is on the East of the island. Just means he came from the other side of the island!!

That’s what I thought ;D there’s no records for a Clement Noel outside of St. Martin though.
