Record Search


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

The name is almost certainly French, but our French sources have failed to reveal any suggestion for the derivation of the name. Taking a literal translation of modern French, the name could suggest 'the missing one' or 'the forgotten one'.

Early records

The Le Manquais family has been present in Jersey since the early 16th century. Edmond Le Manquais was born in 1510 and married a Miss Baudains in 1534. The earliest church record is that of the baptism of Collas Le Manquais, son of another Collas, in St Brelade in 1560. One of the two - it is not known which - was buried in 1562.

The earliest available family tree starts from Pierre Le Manquais, married in 1705, but his baptism does not appear in church records. It is possible that he was the son of another Pierre, son of Pierre, son of Jean, son of Pierre, son of Jehan, but it has not yet been possible to prove this descendancy and create a family tree from the early church records.

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
