Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Beuzeval family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Beuzeval, 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 family originated in the commune of Beuzeval in the Calvados department of Normandy. The commune was renamed Houlgate in 1905 as this area of the commune dominated the original small agricultural hamlet.

Probably the first Beuzeval to move to Jersey was Louis Pierre Michel Beuzeval (1822-1869). This was likely to have been before 1848, because he married his French wife, Henriette Elisa Mivier in St Helier, Jersey, and their only son Louis Simon Beuzeval was born in 1948 in Charente Maritime. Henriette died in 1849 but Louis must have returned to Jersey, where he died in 1869. Neither his son nor his grandchildren settled in Jersey, although they visited him in the island and one granddaughter is known to have worked there for a season. See tree below.

It is probable that the first family to settle and have children in Jersey was led by Aimable Beuzeval, born in France in about 1820. He was accompanied by his wife Colombe Virginie, who was also born in France in about 1820. Census returns suggest that they were accompanied by three sons, Aimable, Francis Alcide and Pierre, all of whom married in Jersey and raised large families. See tree below.

The family was well-established by the end of the 20th century, with ten different households. It is possible that the first members were agricultural workers, although these tended to originate from Brittany rather than Normandy.

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. 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.
