Record Search


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

Mattingley is a village in Hampshire and the surname is said to have originated there, possibly in the family of the Lords of the Manor.

The village is first recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as 'Matinlege', which broadly translates as 'the home of Matta people', an early English tribe who inhabited the area. An alternative suggestion for the derivation of the name is 'the farm where maedere was grown', maedere being a crop from which a red dye was extracted for use in dyeing clothes.

The Surname Database website offers these alternatives and says that the first record of the name spelt 'Mattingley' was the marriage of Anne Mattingley in 1596.

Early records

Mattingley was known in Jersey at least 40 years before this because Richard Mattingley was the first of four members of his family to be elected Constable of St Clement in 1556. He was probably the father of the Richard Mattingley who is at the head of the family tree which is linked below, because this Richard was only 18 at the time.

It is unlikely that the Richard who was Constable was the first of his family to arrive in Jersey, but they cannot have been established for long because there is no mention of the name in the Extente of 1528, or any of the earlier documents which are a source of information for the establishment of early Jersey families. Charles Stevens' list of Jersey surnames finds no earlier reference before 1526, and suggests no alternative spellings for the name.

Constables

In addition to Richard Mattingley, his descendants Jean (1615), Jean (1632) and Clement (1725) were all elected Constable of St Clement.

The family appears to have died out in St Clement in the mid-18th century, but branches were established in Grouville, and later in Trinity, plus a single family in St Saviour. There are no church records in any parish after 1878, and no baptisms beyond 1828, suggesting that the family died out completely in the island in the 19th century.

A detailed online family history shows that there are still Mattingley families in England today, but only takes the family tree back to the 18th century, and makes no reference to the Jersey branch of the family.

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
