Record Search

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

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.

New records

From August 2020 we have started adding records from non-Anglican churches, and this process will continue as more records, held by Jersey Archive, are digitised and indexed. Our database now includes buttons enabling a search within registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These records will automatically appear within the results of any search made from this page.

Origins of surname

We have no information on the derivation of this name, but believe that, like 'Brevet', it may have been a diminuitive of bref, a term applied to a man of short stature.

Early records

The first member of the family to arrive in Jersey was Cosme Brevint, a clergyman and Hueguenot refugee.
