Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, 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.

  46. Jersey pioneer in Gaspé. Charles Robin will have assisted as a boy in his parents` chandlery shop in St Aubin, as chandlery stores were to become a major part of his later business model. He went to the Canadian coast in 1766, initially to work as an agent for his brother`s firm at Cape Breton Island. He adopted from the start, when dealing with indigenous, non-Jersey, fishermen, the `truck system of credit` used for generations by the Hudson Bay Company in its dealings with Indian fur trappers. This involved bringing in to remote areas, far from shops and banks, items such as clothing, sea-boots and groceries as well as general chandlery items. These were made available, not for cash, which was in short supply in these regions, but against the cost of the fish that would be caught by the men in the forthcoming season. The local fishermen were thus likely to begin each season in debt to the company, working part of the summer merely to clear their accounts. This worked well for the merchants, who decided upon the cost of items for sale in their stores, as well as valuing the fish caught, when presented to them for purchase. There were usually few competitors and nowhere else for the fishermen to shop. The system was not without its critics. Charles Robin expanded the business northwards, towards Baie des Chaleurs, in Gaspé, establishing numerous fishing stations, or posts, as they were called in Canada, most of them with their own such stores. In 1783, he founded his own firm, incorporating much of the territory in which he had previously set up posts, and employing, for the first time, a shipwright to construct and repair vessels. In 1800, he owned four such vessels and in 1820, seven ships. In the following years, the fleet doubled in size, despite the founder having died unmarried in 1824, as he had as successore two of his three nephews. In 1874, the fleet consisted of twenty-nine vessels, operating from numerous posts and trading worldwide. The fleet reached the pinacle of expansion in 1882, when thirty-three ships were owned. Early rivals, the Janvrins, had retired from the fisheries and shipowning in 1842, whilst later rivals, Philip Nicolle & Co., had largely withdrawn from Newfoundland, where their interests lay, in 1863. Charles Robin`s successors then took over, in 1879, Jersey`s Commercial Bank, thus following a time-honoured path from shipping to banking. The Robin firm survived the Jersey bank crashes of 1886 [see Abraham_de_Gruchy's_successors] by means of a merger with another Jersey firm, J. & E. Collas, and was trading well into the 20th century: David Lee, The Robins in Gaspé, 1766-1825, (Ontario: Fitzhenry & Whiteside, 1984), 13, 14, 15, 17, 42, 43, 63, 99, inter alia; Almanach du Constitutionnel, (1820) 89, and Almanach de la Nouvelle Chronique, (1875, revised to 11/1874), 103, 106, 108.
