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 www.jerripediabmd.net. 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.

  12. Of Coburg House - unmarried
  13. Born at La Pièce Mauger, which his family had owned for many generations, Thomas (a younger son) became the owner of Le Câtel, Rue de la Falaise, Trinity, where he farmed. Unfortunately, he was unable to keep this property and was subsequently tenant of Le Ménage, Rozel, which he nicknamed `Le Ménage du Tâcher`, meaning the household of many tasks! Whether indolent or unlucky, history repeated itself, as Thomas also lost the tenancy. Finally, he lived near St Martin`s Church, farming two small fields and working part-time as a carpenter. Unsurprisingly, all of his sons sought a career away from the land, mostly at sea!

Philippe had gone to sea as a "Boy" in 1852, aboard Royal George, owned and captained by the family`s close neighbour, Jean de Gruchy of La Ville Machon, Trinity. He then served aboard Arcana and Sophia, both Jersey vessels, becoming by 1854 an Ordinary Seaman. He was then a member of the crew of Foreign-going United Kingdom-owned ships, until 1861. He gained his Only Mate`s Certificate on the 21/02/1865, becoming Mate aboard two Jersey ships, Whydah and the de Gruchy, Renouf and Clement-owned Circassian. From 1866 to 1867, he was Mate of the London vessel, Maid of Honour. On the 10th October 1867, he gained his Master`s Certificate. He was drowned at sea in 1869
  27. The Reverend Messervy`s Notice sur la Famille de Gruchy,(1920), mentions Jean as having died without issue. The `partage` (R.P. 396/126) of the inheritance of his sister, Marguerite Elizabeth de Gruchy (1851-1925), who died without issue, confirms that he, his brothers Philippe and Charles, had all died without heirs

  33. Master Mariner, then Inspector of Foreign Cattle. J. Jean could find few details of his sea-going career, Jersey Sailing Ships (Phillimore, 1982), 136, but this was perhaps a result of de Gruchy having been a London Master before returning to Jersey. He was from 1865-1866 Ship`s Carpenter aboard the Jersey-owned Ocean Queen. From 1866 to 1870, he served aboard the London vessel Ernestine, firstly as an Able Seaman and then as Third Mate. He gained his Second Mate`s Certificate on the 26/05/1870, his First Mate`s Certificate on the 8th December 1871 and finally, his Master`s Certificate (No. 92715) on the 16th April 1874.
