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

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

Its meaning is literally of the road, which according to Balleine could mean simply that the family lived near a road, at a time when roads were not as plentiful as they are now.

De Rue is believed to have a different derivation, and is essentially a Jersey name, whereas de La Rue is more common in Guernsey. We show the two families separately.

Early records

The surname De La Rue can be traced back in the Channel Islands to the 12th century in a letter in which Richard De La Rue, son of William is named as a holder of land in Fief Le Comte in the parish of Castel, Guernsey[1].

The name can also be found in the Extente of 1274, and there are two people of this name mentioned in the Assize Roll of 1309: Ralph De La Rue of Torteval, and Peter De La Rue junior of St Saviours, Guernsey who was convicted of digging a hole in the King's Highway.

The most notable Guernseyman to bear this surname was Thomas De La Rue, the printer who founded the international company that bears his name.

The family is also found in Jersey from the 19th century onwards.

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
