Note on Husband: John ALEXANDRE - shared note

1. I have been in touch with Jenny Joyce from Australia, whose husband is a descendant of John Alexandre and Mary Ann D'Avoine. She has considerable information on the Alexandre family, particularly the branch descended from their son John. Joyce may be contacted at

Note on Wife: Mary Ann D'AVOINE - shared note



1. Mary is aged 8 in the 1851 census, but does not appear as a d'Avoine in 1861.


2. There is a record of a marriage in the parish of St Brelade of a Mary A D'Avoine, age 20, born in Trinity, daughter of Jean, to John Alexandre (age 24, b.St Brelade, son of James). Unfortunately I failed to write down the date of the marriage. This is the only 'Mary A D'Avoine' in the system, so I am attaching the record to her. Fortunately, it seems to match up well with a record in the 1881 census of a family of John and Mary Alexandre in St Helier, with 3 children Lydia, John and Mary.
