Origin of Surname

Historian the Rev George Balleine says that The du Heaumes probably came from the Pays de Houime, south of Falaise in Normandy.

However, Heaume and Heaulme are well-known names from the Mayenne region of France, derived from a maker of heaumes (casks) and several places in the centre of France bear the name. Heaume is modern French for helmet, which might also be a source for the family name.

Early records

The name is not found found in the early Assize Rolls and Extentes but the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains two du Heaumes.

The birth of a Thomas du Heaume is recorded in 1478. He was the father of Perinne (abt 1500) who married Guillaume Le Rossignol of St Ouen.

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

The date of the first settlement of this family in the island has not been ascertained. Its eldest branch possessed lands in the parish of St Ouen, where, becoming extinct, it is now represented by John-Daniel Chevalier, who possesses, among other objects of vertu formerly belonging to the family, an antique tortoise-shell brooch, upon which are carved its armorial bearings.

A junior branch has long been settled at Les Augerez, in the parish of St Peter, and is represented by the Rev. William Duheaume, Rector of Trinity.

Arms: Cheeky, argent and vert, on a bend of the first, a leopard's head, cabossed, between two annidets, sable; a canton ermine. Crest: A dexter hand issuant from clouds, holding a sprig of three roses, all ppr.

A review of these trees in 2018, including the addition of a new tree, has revealed that there is still some way to go in assembling trees which cover over 500 du Heaume baptisms and the family will be further reviewed in 2019

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
