Note on Husband: Jean D'AVOINE - shared note

1. The godparents of Jean are given as 'Ch. Bisson & Ph. Bisson & Marie Bisson'.


2. In the 1841 Census, he is described as John D'Avoine, aged 36, a Shoemaker. He and his family are living in Trinty Parish, Vingtaine of La Croiserie, a house somewhere between Clos du Nel and Grand Maison. (There is currently (2002) a house called Grand Maison in La Rue de la Croiserie, but I can't identify Clos du Nel.)


3. In Hugh Godfrey's map of 1849, the D'Avoines are living at La Forge in the Rondin Vingtaine of Trinity parish. There is still a house called La Forge in Rue es Picots near Trnity parish church (see 2002 Jersey Almanac).


4. In the 1851 census his name reverts to Jean and he is a Pig Butcher. His family are still living in Trinity parish, Le Rondin Vingtaine. The researcher at la Societe Jersiaise gives the address as Vert Pigeon, La Rue Verte. (Now La Rue Verte is a turning just round the corner from La Forge - but the 1861 census lists a place called Vert Pignion which appears to be in Rue es Picots itself, two doors away from La Forge. Is this the same place ? )


5. In the 1861 census he is Jean D'Avoine, Labourer, with the family again at La Forge in Le Rondin.


6. At the time of the 1871 census, he is John again, now 'formerly basket-maker'. He and his wife Jane are still living in Trinity parish, in 'Mrs Cabot's cottage', but all their children have moved away. Mrs Cabots cottage again appears to be somewhere close to the junction of Rue es Picots and La Rue Verte. Jean no longer appears in the 1881 census.


7. There is a curious record in Trinity parish of the burial of 'Jeanne Machon, age 41, wife of Jean Davoine' on December 24, 1833. Was Jeanne Machon the first wife of Jean D'Avoine ? It seems slightly unlikely since she would have been 13 year's older than him. But I have no record of any other Jean D'Avoine whose wife she might have been.

Note on Wife: Jeanne LE SUEUR - shared note



1. In the 1841 she is described as Jane D'Avoine, age 35. In all later censuses she is Jane D'Avoine.


2. In the 1881 census, Jane is still alive and living with her son John and his family. She does not appear in the 1891 census.
