Genealogy family Baudouin: Go to links on this page:
Families: de St Ouen d'Ernemont

The families Audcent and Pinot de Moira descend from the family Baudouin de Boissey and their Genealogy as known at the present time appears below.  I also include a Genealogy of the family Baudouin de Boleil who are not related, however a correspondant Sue has asked if I would place it on this page, in the hope that some present descendants would be able to add to it or contact her.   dba


GENEALOGY of the familyArms of the family Baudouin de Boissey
BAUDOUIN de Boissey alias Boisset, BAUDOIN de Boleil appears later

Seigneurs de BASSET (or BOISSET), DE LA GUENSSUE, DU PREY in Normandie, generalite de Rouen, confirmed in their nobility 1/9/1667 or 1669.
3426. - (FRANCE. Alias : Baudouin de Basset). - D'argt a la croix de sab. cantonnee aux 1 et 4 d'une croix de Malte d'az., aux 2 et 3 d'une tente de gue.

I place here the limited knowledge I have of the family Baudouin de Boissey, together with that of another family Baudouin, with the hope that it will encourage others to pass on the information in their possession for the benefit of descendants generally.  I am concerned that so many Genealogy web-pages restrict their knowledge to display their own direct lines, and in many cases you have to find the information person by person.  I do encourage those interested in Genealogy to be more open and to make their information more accessible.

BAUDOUIN (d'Ernemont et de Boissay near Ernemont-sur-Buchy)

This research undertaken by cousin is preliminary, and confirmation of the assumptions indicated would be much appreciated.  Does anyone have or know of a registered family Genealogy of Baudouin?  Alexander has discovered that the Baudouin family held the title d'Ernemont before it was passed to Jacques de St Ouen.  We know that d'Ernemont is d'ERNEMONT-SUR-BUCHY, and close by is a hamlet called BOISSAY to which this title refers.

2. Mathieu BAUDOUIN, advocat au Parlement, was godfather on the 19/11/1585 to Jacques 2nd of name DE ST OUEN, son of Jacques de St Ouen and his wife Anne Baudouin de Boissay, it is likely that he was either a paternal uncle or more probably one of her brothers, perhaps even a first cousin.

This is  based on the Genealogy Sue found, she would like any cousins, descendants etc. or others with knowledge to advise her of their lines, corrections or addtiions.  If wish to contact her email Sue at and pass a copy to me for information, so that I can update the page, I have added bits and pieces from the Internet where these are available, though Sue has warned me that many genealogies in America are suspect with numerous errors.  If you see any do please inform me.
