Record Search


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

There are two villages named Ste Croix in Normandy, from either of which the family may have come to Jersey.

Early records

The name is not found in the 13th century assize rolls and extentes but two references can be found in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550.

  • Noel de Ste Croix (b abt 1494) in Surville, Jersey, was the father of Symone (b abt 1520), who married Edmond Le Gallais.
  • Jean de Ste Croix (b abt 1508) in St Helier, married Rogiere Falle.
  • Noe de Ste Croix (1594-1627) married Marie Poingdestre.

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

This family has been settled in the island from a very early date, for in a confirmation of lands to the monks of St Mary of Bellozanne by King John in 1200, the name of Robert De Sancta Cruce is mentioned as a trustee.

One branch of this house, still holding land on the fief of Bellozanne, on an estate known as the "Pied du Cotil", is now represented by the eldest son of the late Gautieu De Ste Croix, and by Francois-Gautier De St. Croix, who with Durell Lerrier, also represent the distinguished Norman family of De Gascoing, Seigneurs of several important and extensive fiefs in that Duchy.

Another branch is represented by Philip De Ste Croix, Jurat of the Royal Court of Jersey, son of the late Aaron De Ste Croix, who was also a Jurat. His Brother, Francis De Ste Croix, married Amelia, daughter of the late Charles D'Auvergne, of Guernsey, and is thus connected with some of the most distinguished families of that island.

Arms

(As borne by Francis-Gautier De Ste Croix) Argent, a lion rampant, sable : quartering, Argent, three spear-heads radiating from the fesse point, between as many mullets of six points, pierced, gules, for De Gascoing ; and Azure, a griffin, segreant, or, for Louvel. Impaling, gules, on a mount, vert, two lions, rampant, supporting a tower, argent, for Kelly.

Crest. A dexter arm, embowed in armour, ppr, holding in the hand a cross passion.

Another : A cubit arm, vested, holding a plain cross.

Motto: In Deo confido.

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.
