Record Search


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

Found in Normandy today this name was originally a medieval baptismal name from the Germanic Bertald, previously Berhtwald, a combination of berht (brilliant) and wald (strong). The original holder of the name must have been quite a guy! Although the spelling Bertaux is more common in France today, it is said to have originated as an error.

Early records

There is a record in Normandy of a Guillermus Bertaut in 1332. Our original set of family trees (see below) suggested that four different members of the family (perhaps brothers) came to Jersey in the second half of the 17th century, perhaps as Huguenot refugees, but a decade or two before the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. An unknown Bertaut widow features in the list of abjurations for 1687.

However, the name is found in the island much earlier. Church records show that the family was already established in the early 17th century when a number of Bertauts were born around 1620-30, probably all in St Lawrence.

The following Bertauts can be identified on the 1646 St Lawrence Manifeste des Etats: Raulin, Jean, Abraham, Michel, and M Bertault (Matthieu?).

The family goes back even further, however, and was recorded in St Lawrence in 1530, and with the spelling variation Bertault on a number of occasions in the 16th century in St Lawrence and St Peter

Family trees


This first group of trees are the original ones posted to the site in 2013. Although changes have been made over the years, few additions have been made and recently significant errors have been identified. The second group of trees below was supplied in 2020 by Bertaut researcher James Brannan, together with extensive notes. The first group are being retained at least until it is possible to carry out a further check on the variations from the new trees. Researchers are advised, however, that all the information they need on the Bertaut (and spelling variations such as Berteau) family in Jersey is likely to be found in the second group of trees

New Bertaut/Berteau trees added in 2020, as supplied by James Brannan

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
