Record Search

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

Voisin is French for neighbour.

Early records

The family is well established in Jersey and best known for Voisin's department store. The proprietors of this family business, founded in 1837, and all the other Voisins in the island, are believed to descend from Louis Voisin, who emigrated to the island as a religious refugee with his son and grandson around 1690 (see tree below).
