Record Search


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

This name probably originates with the Teutonic personal name Godebeald. It is not found in France, although there are names such as 'Godes', 'Godet' and 'Godey' which may be synonymous.

Early records

Roger Godel was in 1180 the King`s minister in Jersey of the Ministerium de Groceio (de Grouchy), one of the three districts into which the Island was then divided for administration and the collection of Crown revenues. His family will have given their name to the Fiefs of La Godelière, in the north of the parish of St Helier, and ès Godeaux in the south of Trinity. The former had passed into the hands of the Payn family by the early 14th century, whilst the latter was evidently still owned by the family in the early 16th century, Clement Godel having then been the seigneur. The surname Godel is also found in the Assize Roll of 1309 and Drouet, son of the above Clement Godel, can be found listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550.

Collette Godel was born in Jersey abaout 1580 and married Edmond Falle in 1600

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
