the Channel Islands branch.....Jersey, Rozel Manor.  
Been meaning to update in here for some time, life speeds ahead so fast.

One family branch on my father's side goes back a long long way, to the Channel Islands and prior to that France. That branch arrived in Australia around 1850. Due to the weird inheritance laws and suchlike in the Channel Islands, we no longer have claim to the manor (below). Looks more like a castle to me!. (well there would need to be a lot of people in line before us expiring before we could lay claim to it.) I like day dreaming about being Lady of the Manor.

Anyhow, I've done a few posts about Rozel Manor before, but they should be more rightly here.

Here are the links though will eventually re do them in this journal.

Rozel Manor
My ancestors were the Seignuer's of Rozel for many years. They held Rozel Manor and Longueville Manor from 1246-1329. My ancestors were Drogo de Barentyne and his sons Drew and John de Barentyne, the latter who were very notorious Lords and villians. I was wondering who your ancestors were and what your fathers line was?

Re: Rozel Manor
Ah you were there before us...

In 1534, Rozel, its manor and dependencies, devolved upon Catherine Lempriere, Lady of Rozel, who married Dominic Perrin, a member of a
Guernsey family (The family of Perrin was formerly one of rank (Jurats) and influence in Guernsey), whose descendants became seigneurs of Rozel for four generations. The fief was then sold to Sir Philip de Carteret by Abraham Perrin, in 1625, and after a tenure of the estate of some years by this former family, it was sold to a member of the house of Corbet.

Re: Rozel Manor
Yes, by that time my family was settled primarily in Oxfordshire and Lincolnshire as well as London. I am, regrettably, not that familiar with the regions of France. Did your French ancestors come from Normandy?
