Record Search


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

Balleine, the French word for 'whalebelly', may have been an insulting nickname, reported Jersey historian the Rev George Balleine (see below) in his booklet on the origin of Jersey surnames. The derivation may have been from a man who played Jonah in a miracle play; or perhaps in local terms it was more simply a man from La Baleine south of Coutances

Early records

This family settled in Jersey at a very early period, probably from France.

As recorded in the Extente of 1331, Philip Balein was a member of the jury empanelled to ascertain the King's dues in the parish of St John.

John de la Balleine, possibly born in Jersey in 1310, was a crossbowman at Mont Orgueil Castle in 1337. Some researchers claim that he was the founder of the family in Jersey, but, if so, he cannot have been born there, and he would not have been French. The truth is that there is no documentary evidence surrounding the arrival of the Balleines in Jersey, and although John de la Balleine is shown at the head of the group of trees below, with a birth date of c1425, it is doubtful that he was the father of Thomyn at Generation 2 in the main tree.

Arms : Argent, a lion rampant sable, armed and langued gules.

Family trees


The set of trees below starts with a common source in the first tree, and links from one tree to another are included. There is some overlap with the two trees above, which are from a separate source. An error has been identified in the last tree in this set, which has now been corrected, but this has caused us to institute further checks on other trees in the set.

The following two trees follow essentially the same lineage. The second tree starts a generation earlier and includes more branches

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.
