An18Charles&ElizaBoudier.png
Charles Boudier (1854-1907) and Eliza Mary Ann, nee Rayner (1854-1932). This photograph was probably taken 3-4 years before Charles died at the age of 53 - he looks much older than that here. The connection of Charles and Eliza to Jersey has not been substantiated. A descendant has told us:'Charles' grandfather was Philippe Boudier (1786-1837). Philippe's sister Anne (1782-1806) married in London in 1803 but died three years later. Neither baptisms nor births for Philippe and Anne have been found in England, but their respective baptism dates match the children of Philippe Boudier and Anne Le Gresley in St Helier, Jersey. Although it seems very likely the London branch originates from Jersey, no proof has been found


Record Search


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

Boudier is a French occupational surname with Germanic roots meaning "Army Messenger".

Submitted by William Harry Boudier, Roseville, California (1941- ), family historian for the descendants of Estienne Boudier and his wife, Ann Payn, married in 1721 in Normandy, France. Emigrated to the island of Jersey as religious refugees and took the Oath of Allegiance to the British Crown on 4 October 1721. The Reverend John Boudier referred to below is the 3x great-grandfather of William.

Earliest records

Although there are web references to Jacques Boudier, married to Guellemine Aeher and living in Jersey in 1478, being the son of Jean Boudier, it is not clear what is the source of these references. If there were Boudiers in Jersey in the 15th century, their line seems to have died out, because the first recorded baptism is in 1722.

Variations

These two names have the same derivation but are probably distinct families in Jersey

  • Boudier
  • Boudet

From Payne's Armorial of Jersey

The family of Boudier is of remote antiquity in its native province of Normandy, where it had extensive landed possessions at Saint Malo, Coutances, and Villemer ; its various members having been Seigneurs of Soulle, St Giles, la Bissonaire, and of other fiefs in the neighbourhood. It was intimately connected with the Norman families of Lennier, Durand, Dupre, and Le Feuvre. One member of this family, Peter Francis Boudier, was Grand Prior of the Abbey of St Denis, and Superior-General of the Order of the Benedictines. A letter from Pope Clement XIV, addressed to this eminent ecclesiastic, is still extant in the family.

Various confirmations of arms have been made to the family; the earliest in 1396, and the latest in 1609. From this family was lineally descended, through Estienne Boudier, who settled in Jersey in the 18th century, the late Rev John Boudier, who was educated in France, then at Bury St Edmunds, and afterwards at Pembroke College, Oxford. He was successively Rector of St Ouen, Jersey, and of Grendon, Northamptonshire.

Arms : Or, on a pale azure, a crescent argent, between two mullets of the first. Crest : a crescent, argent. Motto : Dieu et la religion.

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

Starting in August 2020 we are adding 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
