    enthralling! Just discovered my late ex-husband (and thus two sons) are descended from rachel torode who married jean le page. Love to know more

      Many thanks for adding this information. You are very welcome to add any more details that you have concerning the descendants of Jean and Rachel Le Page. Richard Barton

        Hi Keith, No, I don’t know a thing about them apart from the marriage. But were the ever Jews or Jewish? My mother in law was convinced her fathers family were, ie via his mother Caterette/Catherine/Harriet..

        I would think it highly unlikely that any of these people were Jewish. There may have been a small mediaeval community on the island but they would have left long before the Reformation. Brian was fascinated by Judaism so he would have picked up upon it straight away if it existed. His research would have been largely sourced from the island’s church registers – i.e. baptisms, weddings, burials. With every good wish Richard Barton.

    I am curious to know if Elsie Maud, born 1900, daughter of George William Torode and Mary Ann nee Torode married Wilfred Heaume who had two sons, Ernest Heaume and Eric Heaume?

    • Richard Barton
      March 16, 2016

      Yes, she was Brian’s half aunt. I will send you full details in an email attachment. Richard Barton

        I love the photos that you have added of Elsie Marie and her husband Wilfred. You even have a photo of them holding my brother David.

    Hi there, Brian sent me all information relating to my direct ancestry I am currently writing a book for my immediate family, so sad to hear of Brian’s passing, I was wondering who holds the information now?

      Dear Michael, Good to hear from you. You are welcome to use or even add information, as appropriate, to what is published here. The result of Brian’s research is available on this blog site but I do have all of his written notes etc. With kind regards Richard (Barton)

    My 9th great grand parents were Colas Torode & Philipine Noel. I follow the same family line as Brian Torode for my 8th, 7th & 6th grand parents. My 5th were Charles & Marie Robert. My grand parents were Dunstan/Dorey.

      Thank you so much for leaving a comment as Brian would have been delighted to have heard from you. Do you live in Guernsey now?

      • Cathy

        My family moved from Guernsey to Canada in 1921. Brandon, Manitoba was where they lived until the early 1940’s. They moved to Toronto, where most of us still are. My dad was one of 11 children.

    My father was Donovan Torode. His father was Scott Torode. Scott’s father came from Guernsey and moved to South Africa . Anything on the South African Torodes?

    • Richard Barton
      March 14, 2018

      Brian never mentioned any South African Torodes but you are probably distant cousins.

    Hi Richard

    I am trying to trace my great grandmother Marie Torode who married Jean Breton and had several children including Henri Breton in 1710. Jean was from St Saviours. Jean died in 1737 and Marie in 1731.

    I have not been able to find their births or marriage.

    • Richard Barton
      August 18, 2018

      Hi Alison. Thanks for your enquiry. I will see if Brian’s notes offer any clues but it may take a few days to find them. Kindest regards Richard

      • Alison Mauger

        Thanks I appreciate that.

    This was so very interesting I’ve looked at this before but today I actually took more time to read our family history, I live in America now but my father and Aunt still reside in Guernsey my father is Dennis torode and my aunt is named Jean… Thank you for doing this

    Hi Richard

    We spoke a few years ago, I want to thankyou for all your work for Brian and keeping alive our geneology, I am currently working on compiling and investigating further, I was wondering if you would be able to send all the charts, it would be much appreciated, I would of course add any information that I can find

    Yay! This page helped me break through a brick wall on my family history. It appears my 4th Great-Grandmother, Rachel Torode (Daughter of William Torode and Rachel De La Rue) married Lorents Hamilton on 12 Jan 1804 in St. Peter Port, Guernsey.

    According to church records they lived and raised their family in Halden, Østfold, Norway, where their daughter, Elisabeth Jeanette Henriette Lorents, married Halvor Johansen.

    They have numerous documented descendants in Norway and the US. My Great-Great Grandmother, Rachel Helene Saxlund (Halvorsdotter/Johansen) emigrated to North Dakota, USA along with some of her grown children (she had 10).
    I still don’t know where Lorents Hamilton was from prior to their marriage.
    I am so pleased to find such a richly documented Guernsey heritage to explore.
    Thank you!
