Origins of surname
This is a most unusual family. It was present in Jersey from the early 14th century until the mid-19th, but then appears to have died out. There were 158 family baptisms in the period from 1540 to 1834, 148 burials and 30 marriages, the great majority of them in St Saviour. We have been unable to find any trace of the name outside Jersey. There is also no mention of the name in any of our usual sources for the origin of surnames.
The first Le Tubelin in Jersey family records was Lunaire, who is recorded as the father of three children baptised in St Saviour between 1540 and 1559. But Charles Stevens, author of our Comprehensive list of Jersey surnames indicates that the name was present as early as 1309, suggesting that it was mentioned in the Assize Roll of that year. It was certainly mentioned in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550: ffrances, Guillaume, Lunaire and Philippe all feature in that document.

In Jersey Archive catalogue (L/F/57/3), there is a mention of a Drouet Le Tubelin, who must have been born sometime late in the 15th century, and his son Michiel. The entry is dated 28 October 1535:

The Le Tubelin family was closely associated with the Ahiers in the 17th century. Descendants of Lucas Ahier - 2 shows that between 1604 and 1615 three Ahier men married Le Tubelins, and there was a fourth such marriage in 1675. The association goes back further to 1600, when Jacques Le Tubelin married Marie Ahier.

The church record links above will open in a new tab in your browser and generate the most up-to-date list of each set of records from our database. These lists replace earlier Family page baptism lists, which were not regularly updated. They have the added advantage that they produce a chronological listing for the family name in all parishes, so you do not have to search through A-Z indexes, parish by parish.
We have included some important spelling variants on some family pages, but it may be worth searching for records for a different spelling variant. Think of searching for variants with or without a prefix, such as Le or De. To search for further variants, or for any other family name, just click on the appropriate link below for the first letter of the family name, and a new tab will open, giving you the option to choose baptism, marriage or burial records. You will then see a list of available names for that type of record and you can select any name from that list. That will display all records of the chosen type for that family name, and you can narrow the search by adding a given name, selecting a parish or setting start and end dates in the form you will see above. You can also change the family name, or search for a partial name if you are not certain of the spelling
Since August 2020 we have added several thousand new records from the registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These will appear in date order within a general search of the records and are also individually searchable within the database search form
