Records in Jersey indicate John, son of Jacob was born in 1651 and Thomas in 1654.

There remains a possibility that Thomas, son of Jacob, was the Thomas found in Virginia and was George Poindexter I's nephew and not his son. It is also possible that Thomas, son of Jacob, died as a child and was therefore not part of the above gift. Another possible situation is that the nephew Thomas was coming to the colonies with his uncle.

Jacob POINGDESTRE had the following children:



John POINGDESTRE was born in 1651 in Isle of Jersey.



Thomas POINGDESTRE was born in 1654 in Isle of Jersey.



Marie POINGDESTRE was born (date unknown).
