Record Search


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

Bourgoise is a variation of Bourgeoise, the feminine variant of bourgeois and it is derived from the old French borjois, which had various meanings over the centuries - dependent of a seigneur, inhabitant of a town, freeman, member of the bourgeois society. Bourgeoise is found in the Calvados department and Bourgoise is more common in neighbouring Manche, across the water from Jersey.

Early records

Francois Louis Bourgeois married Madelaine Guilbert in St Helier in 1750. There are no records of any of their possible children but Pierre Salvan Bourgeois and Elizabeth Raoul had a daughter Marie Anne Elizabeth in 1751, and Jean Bourgoise and Elizabeth Laffoley had a son Jean in 1752. This Jean came from Guernsey and the marriage register of St Ouen suggests that his name was actually spelt Bourgaize.

There are also baptisms of daughters Jeanne (1774- ) and Elizabeth (1777- ) of Jean Bourguese and Anne Gallienne in St Ouen. This Jean was the son of Jean Bourgaize and Elizabeth Laffoley.

Aimable Bourgoise, head of the tree below, was born in Normandy in 1823 and moved to Jersey and married Esther Le Riche.

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
