Record Search


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

New records

From August 2020 we have started adding records from non-Anglican churches, and this process will continue as more records, held by Jersey Archive, are digitised and indexed. Our database now includes buttons enabling a search within registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These records will automatically appear within the results of any search made from this page.

Origin of Surname

Malet comes from the Old French maleit, accursed. The first Malet may have been excommunicated, or he may have seemed dogged by misfortune.

Spelt Mallet, the name is very common today in Normandy, and records there show Turstinus Malet (1079), Tostinus Malet (1109), [1] Robertus Malet (1220) and Malet de Altifago (1337).

Early records

The name of Pierre Mallet of St Lawrence appears in the Short Inquisition of 1274 and that of Olivier Malet of Grouville in the Extente of that year. In 1515 Sire Thomas Mallet was Dean of Jersey. Maistre Anthony Mallet and Jehan (or Johan) Mallet are included in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550. Julian Mallet was also living in the 16th century. In common with Thomas Mallet, the Dean of Jersey, he is one of the very few Mallets whom it has not been possible to identify genealogically. He did, however, have a son Richard, a man in his majority in 1607, with interests in St Saviour.

Isabella Mallet (b abt 1475 in Grouville), the daughter of John Mallet, married Jean Payn of St Martin.

In addition to indigenous Jersey Mallets and those featured on trees shown below, there were, in the 19th century, two English Mallet settlers and one from Normandy, who married in Jersey and had families. One only of these settlers, being one of those from England, had male issue. The great majority of Mallets living today in Jersey are therefore of indigenous stock.

The family has given to the Island a Bailiff, four Jurats, two of whom have held the office of Lieutenant-Bailiff, and five Constables. In the ecclesiastical realm, there has been a Mallet Dean of Jersey, a Vice-Dean, and three rectors. Sire Paul Mallet, although not known to have been a rector was, in the early 16th century, a priest.

Businesses

Gladys Mallet and Philip Grandin in the Central Market

These pictures were sent to us by the current owner, a descendant of the original purchaser in 1900, of a pocket watch which was not the work of Jersey silversmith, jeweller and watch and clock maker, Walter Mallett, but was made by Rotherham and Sons, of Coventry, and engraved at their factory with the retailer's name. Similar Rotherham watches have the retailer’s name and location engraved in the same way, along with the serial number. Walter Mallett, whose possible relationship to John (adverts above) is uncertain, was in business from 1884-1917, probably largely as a retailer. We have not been able to establish where his shop was.

Family album

A postcard sent to Miss Elvina Mallet at La Rocque in 1909. Elvina was born in 1884, the daughter of farmer George and his wife Ann, nee Le Rougetel. The family lived at Summer Field, La Rocque, where George farmed 10 acres. He and Ann were married in St Helier in 1877. They had four other daughters in addition to Elvina: Annie, Ada, Lilian and Georgette. At the time of the 1891 census Elvina was living with her grandparents, Charles and Lydie Le Rougetel, at 58 Beach Road, along with her 87-year-old great-grandfather Edouard Le Rougetel, who had previously been a farmer, also at Grouville. It is possible that he previously owned Summer Field, but that is not clear from census returns. In 1891 Elvina's elder sisters Annie and Ada were living with George and Ann at La Rocque. We believe that George was baptised George Winter Mallet and was the son of La Rocque fisherman Charles Mallet and his wife Marie, nee Le Gros

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. 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.

New records

Since August 2020 we have added several thousand new records from the registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These will appear in date order within a general search of the records and are also individually searchable within the database search form
