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.

Notes and references

  1. Of The Yews, St Peter, grandson of Jean Le Brocq, Sermenté, St Ouen, (1668 Extente) and great-great-grandson of Matthieu, Constable of St Ouen (-1552-81) and (1592-95)
  2. Of The Yews, Merchant, purchasing between 1708-1747, 46 vergées of farmland
  3. Merchant and Farmer
  4. Jacques Balleine`s mother, Elizabeth Le Brocq, was one of the co-heiresses of the Le Brocqs of St Aubin, who had been, from 1595, notable Wine merchants and shipowners, trading with France and Southampton
  5. Of The Yews, Farmer and Merchant. His family business is first described in detail in (Anon.) A Summer Stroll through the Islands of Jersey and Guernsey, (Jersey: De Fries, 1809), 110: "We have now to mention Le Brocque`s (sic) shop in St Peter`s, which forms a complete magazine or DEPOT, of almost every article in domestic use, from the most expensive wines, to all the inferior minutiae of household consumption." In addition to the mentioned wines, the other articles "in domestic use" will have been groceries and chandlery. Judging from newspaper advertisements, they were also seedsmen, who stocked fruit trees and saplings, probably giving to the adjoining Rue des Sapins, where they had land, its name. This particular William Le Brocq, however, seems to have farmed the 46 vergées, leaving his brother Jean Le Brocq to run the business
  6. Of La Hougue, St Peter
  7. Founder in 1822 of "Wm. Le Brocq junr. & Co." of Jersey and Nova Scotia, Shipowners in the Canadian maritime fisheries. In 1823, he added to his commercial activities a Linen & Woollen Drapery business in St Helier, run from Halkett House, a former Government House, which stood at the junction of King Street and Halkett Place. Inheriting in 1828, The Yews, its farm and business, he dissolved in February 1829 the paternal business and sold in 1831 the house and farm to his younger brother, Philippe who, like their father, wished only to farm. He had bought in 1829 the former de La Garde property in Gorey, where he then settled. The dissolving of the Le Brocq partnership at The Yews, as advertised on the 21st February 1829 in the Chronique de Jersey, corrects the view previously expressed by this writer in ABSJ, (2014), 280-281, that the business may have remained in the family`s hands, albeit under local managers, until 1851
  8. Living then at Arichat, Nova Scotia, daughter of the adjutant of a regiment stationed nearby
  9. Wine Merchant at the junction of King Street and Pitt Street, Lieut, RJM
  10. Formerly of St Lawrence, Southampton, Mercer, where he married in September 1796: Marriage License Allegation; Universal British Directory, 1793-1798. Catherine Shawford`s date of birth in Ireland, has been calculated from her being of full age at the time of the 1796 Marriage License Allegation, which is within four years of her age as given in the 1841 St Helier Census. Her age as given at death, which differed by ten years, was perhaps a clerical error, as it would have meant a marriage at the age of fourteen or fifteen
  11. This couple emigrated to Australia, with issue born there
  12. Of Diélament Manor, Capt RJM
  13. Emigrated in 1852 to Australia, with Edmund Henry Collas, the brother-in-law of his sister Charlotte: Empire, (Sydney NSW: 1850-1875), featuring a passenger list, dated 7/8/1852, of those arriving from London, on the 900 ton ship Saracen. The list includes Edmund Hy. Collas and, next in the list, "D. Le Brog" (sic). Douglas is said to have been successful in the Ballarat goldfields, returning to Jersey on inheriting his late father`s house and land at Gorey
