Record Search


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

Gibaut is old French for a billhook, although how that became a surname is difficult to imagine.

Early records

The name appears in the Extente of 1528 and Jean, Philipot, Johan, Sire Louys and Piers are mentioned in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550.

Jean Gibaut (see link to family tree below) was born in St John about 1506 and married Marguerite Sarre, daughter of Simon and Catherine Larbalestier. Sire Louys Gibaut (1534- ) and Edouard Gibaut (1530 -) were their sons, and Marie Gibaut (1536- ) their daughter

Louis Gibaut was born in St Lawrence about 1575 and died there before 1619. He married Marguerite Balleine, daughter of Pierre and Marie Robin.

Catherine Gibaut was born in St Lawrence about 1504 and was the daughter of Jean (1478- ). She married Jean du Parcq and they had a son Guillaume

Catherine Gibaut was born in St Lawrence in 1595, the daughter of Nicolas and Catherine Le Brocq. They also had a daughter Mauricette (1588- )

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

Emigrating at the commencement of the 15th century from Flanders, this family settled in the parish of St Lawrence, where its representative still lives. Nicholas Gihaut, or Gyhault, as the name was then spelt, was Rector of the parish of St Saviour so early as 1497. Louis Gybault was Vice-Dean of Jersey in 1514. And a namesake and collateral relative, another Louis Gybault, possessed the living of St Clement in 1567.

From this ecclesiastic, who was born about 1530, the existing family of the name directly descend. Its chief representatives are Abraham Gibaut, of La Vallée, Colonel Moses Gibaut, Philip Gibaut, Constable of St John, and Moses Gibaut, of Mainland. The junior branch descended from a second son of the Rev Louis Gybault, of St Clement, is extinct.

The estate of La Vallée, in the parish of St Lawrence, comprised at one period four hundred vergées of land, and has been held by the ancestors of its present possessor for at least 450 years. The house, perhaps one of the most antique in the island, still stands, being now used as an outhouse.

Two parishes

Nearly 400 of the 492 Gibaut baptisms in Jersey were in the parishes of St Lawrence (225) and Trinity (160). What is currently a mystery to us is that only one burial is recorded in the transcription of the Trinity register, although there must have others. Most of the family trees below are for the St Lawrence branch of the family. We are working to establish more trees for the Trinity branch, which was the older of the two.

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
