De Jersey, Le Quesne, De Carteret and others.
What began as a conversation with my grandmother Joy (nee de Jersey) O’Brien, about 40 years ago and continuous research from then, I have finished (if we ever finish family research) writing a 4 volume book on my ancestors from Normandy and the Channel Islands. These lineages came about from the emigration of Charles de Jersey [son of Peter & Sophia (Nee Fisher) de Jersey, of Mon Plaisir, Guernsey, later London] and Charlotte Golding [daughter of John and Ann Spencer (Nee Dawson) Golding of London], who landed in NSW in 1853c. Subequent to their marriage in NSW, the spent a period of time in New Zealand they eventually settled in Tasmania.
Without the assistance of Brian de Jersey of Guernsey, I would never have been able to untangle the tangled relationships of the de Jersey Clan world wide from its beginnings in about 1400. Thank you so much Brian. Other people around the world, have so selflesly shared their photos, stories and data, of our incredible family of both the de Jersey, Lequesne and de Carteret families - world wide.
I have just received a quote for the de Jersey and others stories and photos book I have written.
It is extremely expensive to print as it is 2,750 A4 pages, and it has to be bound into 4 hard bound volumes!!!
The research investigates our De Jersey ancestors, divided into the different lineages: Toilette line and the other lines; Mon Plaisir line (our line); The Le Quesne and de Carteret Line ancestors; the Australian de Jerseys and the Tasmanian de Jerseys.
Then there are also chapters on my Golding; Burnett and Stewart ancestors.
If any of you are interested let me know ASAP.

Hello All; Attached is a photo for which I have no name. Based on the clothes I suspect he may be one of the sons of John (b. 1855) and Charlotte Perree, so late 1800's early 1900's? If anyone out there recognizes the photo, I would sure appreciate hearing from you. ... See MoreSee Less
