Record Search

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

A possible derivation for the Ramier surname is the modern French ramier meaning a wood-pigeon or dove, as in the English surname `Dove.` Ramié, however, may be derived from the French ramie meaning a grass-cloth plant - perhaps a name for those who grew it.

Early records

Ramier first appeared in St Helier in 1766 with the baptism of Jean, son of Claude and Sara Bruton, who were married in St Martin earlier in the year. Ramié, which appears to be a separate family, was much later, appearing in St Helier in 1825, with the marriage of Charles François Ramié to Anne Le Brocq of St Peter. Their descendants are featured below.
