Record Search


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

The name literally means 'from the place', although which place is not entirely clear. It was probably as simple as 'living near the town square' or in a small hamlet. It is a name found throughout France.

The name is not found in the 14th century assize rolls and extentes nor the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550, but there is a record in the island in 1576.

The early family had not died out when another de La Place family arrived in Jersey as religious refugees from France in the 17th century (see below).

Jean de la Place (b abt 1635) married Sara Bisson of St Lawrence (b abt 1639)

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

The insular founder of this family was the Reverend Pierre De La Place, a member of the ancient and honourable family of this name, of the province of Angouleme. He, with his wife, fled from France on account of his religious opinions, and settled in the parish of St Ouen, as appears by a formal document given by the Bailly, Philip De Carteret, and a quorum of Jurats, to the Rev Elias De La Place, son of Peter, as a proof of his descent. This deed is dated 1 October 1641.

Elias De La Place became possessed of the fiefs of Anneville, Everat, and Lempriere, by purchase, from his Majesty's Commissioners, in 1649. These fiefs are held by Knight's service, and owe the maintenance of a horseman equipped and ready for service, with arms and other requisites, at all times when the enemy shall assail or be near the island; these fiefs are also to remain impartable in the male, or colateral, line for ever.

The estates were afterwards held by Philip De Carteret, Bailly of Jersey, by his marriage with Mary De La Place, Lady of Anneville, the last member of the elder branch of the family, a most estimable person, who, as says the Parish Register, "fut regrette du peuple, de ses tenants, et des pauvres, auxquels elle faisoit beaucoup d'aumoines."

Branches of the family, now extinct, are represented by the families of Le Hardy and Le Maistre of St Ouen.

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

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
