Record Search


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

Fauvel means tawny; so it may be a name for someone with tawny hair. It also means a fallow deer, so it may be an animal nickname. And there is a third possibility. One of the favourite tales of the Middle Ages was the Roman de Fauvel, the story of a chestnut horse which tricked everybody; so the name was often given to an artful dodger.

The spelling Fauvel is most common in Normandy, with Fauveaux and Fauvelle found in Picardy.

Early records

The name is long established in Jersey, appearing in the Assize Roll of 1309. The Fauvel family first appears in Jersey records in Grouville and St Clement in the east of the island in the early 17th century, but the name is found in records as early as 1299.

This was a large family and 465 baptisms are recorded in church records up to 1842.

  • Johan Fauvel is listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550
  • Richard Fauvel was born in Grouville about 1572 and married Suzanne Amy, the daughter of Francois Amy and Marie Lempriere, in 1596.
  • Michel Fauvel (1668-1748) m Sara de Quetteville (1668- ) d of Jean and Sara Dumaresq. They had a daughter Anne (1706- ) who married Philippe Messervy (1707- )

  • Richard Fauvel (1572- ) m Susanne Amy d of Francois and Marie Lempriere

Family photographs

The 1908 St Brelade marriage of farmer Philip Fauvel, son of clerk Philip, and Harriet Vivian Mourant, daughter of Farmer Philip, was clearly a grand affair. But how did the couple know each other? Philip jnr's grandmother was also a Mourant, but there does not appear to have been any relationship between her and his bride. Bride and groom were both from St Lawrence families, but Philip was born in Wellington, New Zealand. His father emigrated with his brother Francis, in his early 20s, and married Martha Ellen Earl (1853-1909) in 1874. They had six daughters before Philip was born in Wellington in 1886. Philippe snr's mother Ann, nee Mourant, followed her two sons to New Zealand after the death of their father in 1883. Although there does not appear to have been a family relationship between Ann and Harriet Mourant, it appears that Philip jnr must have returned to Jersey to marry and then gone back to New Zealand with his new wife, because their first daughter, Vivian Harriet, was born there in Eketahuna, where they made their home, in 1912. She was followed by Richard in 1913, Mavis in 1915, Marjorie Clara in 1916, Keith Mourant in 1919 and Louisa Ellen. Philip died in Wellington in 1975 at the age of 89. He was serving in the New Zealand Army Reserve in 1916-1917, when he was described as a horse worker

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
