    Notes 
    • "All baptismal names were French, and in Guernsey this appears to have been a French-speaking family, though they may well have been bilingual. ( Elizabeth WINDSOR's aunt, Mary WINDSOR, and sister, Jeanne WINDSOR, both married Englishmen, as did Jean LELACHEUR's sister, Marie. They all continued to live in St. Peter Port. All the names appear to have been immediately anglicized once they came to P.E.I. Jean became John, (in many records, John, Sr.,), his son, Jean Windsor, became John the Younger; Henriette became Harriet; Elizee became Elisha; and Barthelemi became Bartholomew." [3]
