Record Search


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

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 is a west of France variant of Augé and Augier, which come from the Germanic Adalgari. Adal = ‘noble’ and gari = ‘lance’: clearly an important soldier.

The name is more common in Guernsey than it is in Jersey.

Early records

The surname Ogier can be traced in Guernsey back to a deed which states that Michel Ogier des parties de Normandie was living in the Vale, Guernsey in 1511.

The origin of the surname may be from the legend of Ogier the Dane who was reputed to be the son of Geoffrey, King of Denmark in the 9th Century.

Burial records

Family album

Leonce Ogier, born on 15 June 1881, was a partner in the law firm Larbalestier and Ogier. On 12 February 1943 German police searched the family home and found a map on which Leonce’s son, Richard, had been marking fortifications. Leonce and Richard were arrested and interrogated before being shipped to Paris for further questioning by the Gestapo, and then to Fresnes prison.

At this point it was suspected that Richard was suffering from a brain tumor, and he was admitted to the hospital. Leonce stood trial and was sentenced, but the case was so weak that he was pardoned by the military commander of Paris and sent back to Jersey. Richard remained in Paris in the hospital, where he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. No treatment was possible, but he stayed there until his repatriation to London in November 1944.

When Leonce returned to Jersey on 24 May 1943 he became a popular icon. This was difficult for the occupiers to accept, and it played a major part in his being deported again around 10 July 1943.

What nobody knew at the time was that he was suffering from cancer of the intestines. The symptoms went unnoticed among a generally emaciated population. The severe physical and psychological stress of the journey to Biberach triggered rapid deterioration, and upon arrival he was immediately admitted to the camp hospital. He seemed unaware of the seriousness of his condition and thought that he had a cold. But he died on 1 August 1943, barely two weeks after his arrival in Biberach. His ashes were returned to Jersey and interred in St Saviour’s Cemetery

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.

New records

Since August 2020 we have added several thousand new records from the registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These will appear in date order within a general search of the records and are also individually searchable within the database search form
