Record Search


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

Origins of surname

Bordon was the French name for a pilgrim's staff, so the name was probably first given to a pilgrim. There are, however, several other explanations for the derivation of the name, which is most common as Bourdon in the French departments bordering the English Channel, including Normandy, where it remains common today.

Anther references suggests that bordon was the name for a cross between a horse and a donkey, and that in this context it was applied to an illegitimate child.

Further, in Normandy the name is said to derive from the old French bordon for a buzzing insect, or for a musical wind instrument in the shape of a serpent which was used in churches to accompany a chant. Perhaps the name was given to someone who played the instrument, or to murmured, making a similar sound to the bordon.

Early records

The family name is on record in Jersey in various spellings from the early 14th through to the mid-16th century. The first baptism record is in St Clement, where the majority of the family lived, in 1624.

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.
