Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Baal family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Baal, 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.

Origin of surname

This name is common in various spellings throughout Europe, although not in Normandy. It is of pre 7th century Olde French origins, coming from the word "baud" meaning "joyful", was given probably as a nickname for a "lusty and swaggering youth". There is some confusion with the German and Anglo-Saxon "Baldo", a personal name which means "bold". It can be argued that the meanings are essentially the same, and it is likely that in most countries of Europe it is not possible to isolate the precise origins.

There is a different suggestion for the origin of the name in Charles Stevens' Comprehensive list of Jersey surnames; that it comes from La Baasle, a town in Normandy, but we can find no trace of such a place.

Early Jersey records

The earliest Jersey church record is for the marriage of Jeremie Baal to Elizabeth Machon in St Clement on 6 September 1601. There are 85 baptism records, starting in 1612 with Jean, the son of Jean Baal

Variations

  • Baal
  • Ball (although there is some confusion between this spelling and Baal in Jersey records, it is unlikely that they are actually the same family)

Tips

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

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.
