Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Notes and references

  1. In September 1655, Hugh de Gruchy bought a house from Edouard Bisson. The location is not clear but neighbours were mentioned, Le Blancq and Le Montais, which suggests St Ouen [Registre Public]. In 1684 Hugh bought land on the Fief St Helière, St Ouen, which fief is in the immediate vicinity of St Ouen`s Church, confirming the above location
  2. Officier des Vraicqs, Havre de La Crabière, (also called Le Havre du Sud), St Ouen, 1709 [Cour de Samedi, 1707/9]. This official was responsible for ensuring vraicq (seaweed) was cut and harvested in his area (Le Havre du Sud) at the correct times, settling also disputes involving cutting and harvesting boundaries. Seaweed was a valuable commodity in Jersey, being a fertiliser rich in nutrients. In May 1706, Jean brought an action before the Cour d`Héritage as the elder son of Hugh de Gruchy (so Philippe (1663- ) will have died by then without issue), Hugh being described as a younger son of Matthieu senior and of Jeanne Aubin, his wife, against Michel, eldest son of the late Matthieu de Gruchy, who was eldest son of the said Matthieu senior, for his share of their inheritance. This establishes the parentage of Jean`s father, Hugh. Actions such as these are most useful, as they identify relationships sometimes missed in Church records
  3. A partage dated 18th January 1759 names François, eldest son of Jean Biguerel and the late Anne de Gruchy, his wife, as the principal heir of the late Pierre de Gruchy, who will thus have died without issue, as will Anne`s brother, Jean François de Gruchy. The co-heiresses were Sara de Gruchy, wife of Abraham Le Gallais (whose baptism does not feature in the parish register) and Elizabeth de Gruchy (whose baptism is featured)
  4. A Huelin baptism in St Ouen mentions Pierre de Gruchy, a godparent, as being "du Coin". In 1752, Pierre paid 104 Livres tournois (old French currency then in use in Jersey) to obtain the St Ouen parish tithes
  5. Philippe bought the parish tithes in 1772 and in 1773
