Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the De La Haye family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of De La Haye, 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 family probably came from La Haye du Puits, opposite Rozel on the French coast, or from La Haye Pesnel near Granville, or perhaps both. The name may be further derived from the old French haie meaning a hedge or enclosure.

It is a common name with several variants in Normandy. There is a record of Isenbardus de la Haia in 1050, Robertus de Haia in 1107 (he was founder of Bexgrove Priory in Sussex in 1123 and came from La Haye du Puits), Radulphus de Haia in 1257, Nicholas de Haya in 1198 and Gillebert de la Haie in 1261.

Early records

This is one of the oldest surnames in Jersey, found in the Short Inquisition of 1274

The de la Hayes in Jersey probably came direct from France but there was a prominent family of the name in Lincolnshire in the 12th century, descended from the Dukes of Normandy. The earliest de la Haye in this line, Richard, was born in La Haye du Puits.

The name was introduced to England after the Norman conquest. Ranulf de Lahaia appears in 1199, in the "Records of the Abbey of Colchester", Essex, during the reign of King Henry 1.

  • John de la Haye, born in Jersey about 1530, married Marguerite Le Breton, and their daughter Peronelle married Rogier Le Breton.

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.
