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

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.

Origin of Surname

This name, although it undoubtedly came to Jersey from France, is of pre-7th century German origin. The first spelling was as the forename "Hugo" meaning "heart or mind", and this spelling is found in the Domesday Book of 1086. The personal name was highly popular throughout Europe in medieval times, and can be found under various spellings as a surname in most European countries.

Early records

This surname appears in early 14th century documents in Jersey and Sire Jean and Johan are listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

The first baptisms appear in the St Saviour register in 1546.

Family album

This photograph was taken somewhere in New South Wales, Australia, and shows the descendants of the 12 children of Peter Hughes/Pierre Hue born in 1815 in St Helier. Peter was an able seaman on many ships. He died in 1883 in NSW and his wife may be in the picture, because she died in 1903 and this picture could have been taken in about 1895.
