Record Search

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

Origins of surname

Bienvenu is French for 'welcome', and was originally a baptismal name for a child which was particularly welcomed by the family. It developed into a surname

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Louisa Mary, a foundling, who would have been welcomed into the hospital, or poorhouse, and baptised there. Bienvenu was obviously not her family name, but she was clearly welcomed by the hospital staff. This is the only Church of England baptism of a Bienvenu child

Two distinct Bienvenu families came to Jersey from Ploeuc-sur-Lie in Brittany in the late 19th century. Although they would almost certainly have had a common ancestor in Cotes d'Armor, we have not been able to establish any link between the two trees below
