    My historic family of VALPY have connections to the De Carteret’s of Jersey.
    According to my and other researchers I am a 5th cousin of Capt Phillip De Carteret the navigator. I have always wondered why there seems to be no public recognition of this
    gentleman, a statue or something in a public place.
    I am a firm believer that had he been better equipted by the Royal Navy with a
    more seaworthy vessel he may have gone on after discovering Pitcairn Island and found
    New Zealand & Australia before Capt James Cook.

    I am a desendant of John Thomas Catrett (Carteret), born 1784 in the Carolina Territory (North Carolina, USA) today.

    Hi, researching family tree and have got as far as Guilliame (Guy) de Carteret (First Lord of the Manoir de Carteret). This plaque is interesting but where did the information come from? In medieval history and hunting, a L’Oiseleur is a very highly skilled falconer who rides with the hunt, and as such would have the ear of the Duke.

      Dear Heather,
      Thank you for contacting Le Cercle De Carteret.
      I would be interested to know about your research.
      What name did you start with? Was your Mum, or Grandmother a De Carteret? Or maybe you have male relatives with the surname De Carteret.

      As I would be interested in the links you have followed to the point you arrive at where the De Carteret’s start.
      You mention a plaque, is it the one on the Chapel of St Loise in Carteret, Normandy?
      Yes, I agree with the true information on Guilliame De Carteret, we do know he was indeed the Falconer for William the Conquerer.
      Look forward to hearing your answers.
      Best Wishes
      Jennifer Thomas (nee De Carteret) in Guernsey, Channel Islands (Secretary for Le Cercle De Carteret)
