Descendants of Jean Langlois


This tree was added to the site in 2011. It was reviewed in 2022 by [[[Mike Bisson]] and considerable detail added

Mike noted that he had to rely on US records for the descendants of Philippe/Philip English and although there are some 900 trees at Ancetry following this descent, they are wildly inaccurate and could not be relied on. He decided not to continue the branch beyond the mid-18th century

Langlois family page and links to other trees

In common with the majority of our trees, this descendancy has been subject to regular review by site editors and checked against Jersey church records. Trees including French ancestry have also been checked as far as possible against French primary records. It is not always possible to carry out such checks on sections of trees with United Kingdom and/or colonial content

Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Notes and references

  1. A large number of online trees show Jean married to Joan Tyler, or Joan Comly, supposedly born in 1630. This would mean that she had her first child at the age of 11 and four more before she was 21. She is also shown as coming from England, which also makes her a most unlikely wife for Jean
  2. Died Salem
  3. Baptism not found
  4. Emigrated to Salem in the USA, where he changed his name to Philip English and became a successful businessman, only to be caught up in the witch trials. Baptised 30 June 1651: Godparents Philippe de Carteret, Seigneur of St Ouen, and his wife
  5. Many online trees - there are over 900 at Ancestry for this family - show William marrying Mary Draper and living until 1761. This William actually died in infancy and it was the second William to be given the name who married and had a family with Mary Draper
