Record Search


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

Origin of Surname

This essentially Norman surname is said to be derived from baille + hache, referring to a man who carried a hatchet, or an axe, but it might also refer specifically to an executioner

Early records

The name is recorded in the Extente of 1331. It was known in England as early as 1154.

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

This family is of high antiquity in Normandy, where its members were Seigneurs of Rauville, Biesville, Longueval, La Corderie, etc. The Norman stem is traced from Raoul de Baillehache, living near Caen in 1305, where the name is and has been variously spelt, Ballehache, de Bellehache, de Bailhache, de Baillhache, de Balliehache, and de Baillehache.

The Jersey family had been long settled in the parish of Saint Lawrence, where it had held offices of trust, and whence branches afterwards migrated to the parishes of St Ouen and St Helier. Its members were merchants of celebrity before and during the reign of Charles I and II. Clement Bailhache, who died in 1819, was a Jurat of the Royal Court.

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.
