Record Search


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

Origins of surname

This name, which is common throughout France, is derived from the personal name Vaillant, meaning 'valiant' and 'strong', which in turn comes from the Latin name Valentius.

Early records

The name is found in Jersey church records as early as 1653, when Jean, son of Jean, was baptised in St Peter, but it would be another 140 years before another baptism is found. Philippe, son of Marie La Gerche, and an unnamed father, was baptised in the same parish in 1797.

The line which is found in Jersey today probably started with the baptism of Ann, daughter of Philippe and Marguerite Le Sueur, in St Helier in 1828. Philippe almost certainly came from the north of Brittany, where the name is very common; possibly from the commune of Plounez in Cotes d'Armor. Another family (see tree below) came from Saint Caradec in Cotes d'Armor.

Family album

The Dutertre family in Canada. Ann Marie Le Vaillant, born in St Helier in 1894, is second from the left, standing next to her husband, Joseph Marie Dutertre (1885-1922), with his mother Catherine Gallais seated in the centre, his brothers Jean Louis and Francois. Catherine was born in Plaintel, Brittany in 1846 and married Pierre Marie Dutertre (1842-1892) in his birth town, St Brandan, in 1871. They moved to Jersey that year and their son Pierre, and daughters Marie Rose and Angelina were born in St Lawrence, St Clement and Grouville, respectively. The family then returned to St Brandan, where Jean Louis, Francois, Jeanne and Joseph were born, before returning to Jersey in the late 1880s. Pierre Marie died in St Clement in 1892, and Catherine married for a second time to Pierre Lucas. But Catherine left with her children for Canada in 1904 and was living there in 1911, when Pierre Lucas died in Jersey. She went to the USA in 1918, but returned to Jersey some time later and died there in 1930

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
