This family name, which is still present in Jersey today, can be found in island records as far back as the early 14th century, but there is unlikely to be any link between the two

Record Search


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

Le Mière was the doctor. The word is a variant of Le Mire, old French for a doctor or surgeon

Early records

The name appears in the Assize Roll of 1309

  • Guille Le Mière was born in Jersey about 1479 and married Perrine Messervy
  • Guille Le Miere (1500- ) St Saviour was the son of Guille (1472- ) possibly the same as above.

There are baptism records for Le Miere from 1656 onwards, but it has proved impossible to trace the later records to these early families and we believe that the male lines of the family probably died out in Jersey and further Le Mieres came to the island from Normandy, where the name is very common, in the 19th century.

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.
