Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Mahaut family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Mahaut, 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 is a name common in the Manche department of Normandy and further north in Nord, Pas de Calais and Belgium. It is derived from a personal name which is the male equivalent of Mathilde.

Early records

The family name appears to have disappeared from Jersey twice. It is first found in church records in the 1630s, although the name is found in the island spelt Mahaud as early as 1309. There were two families in the 1630s, one in St Ouen and the other in St Lawrence. It is probable that they had a common ancestor, but there is no documentary evidence to support that belief.

The last St Ouen birth was in 1680, and the last male births registered were in St Lawrence and Trinity, where a branch had become established, both in 1727. By the early 19th century the name appears to have died out, but it reappeared later in the century with the arrival of Jean Aimable Mahaut and his wife Anne Henriette Quenault from France, followed by Alphonse Hyppolyte Mahaut and his wife Marie Louise Le Mortellec (or Le Maitre), who first settled in Guernsey.

Although both couples raised families in Jersey, there appear to be no surviving descendants today.

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
