Record Search


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

The name is derived from the baptismal name Nicolas. The family has been established in Jersey and Guernsey for many centuries.

Early records

This is a large Jersey family of long standing, one branch of which has been in Jersey since the 13th century or earlier. A distinct family arrived from England in the 15th century. John Nichol was Master Warder of Mont Orgueil and Bailiff in 1494. His descendants adopted the local spelling.

The Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains 11 Nicolles.

  • Guillotine Nicolle was born in Jersey in 1410
  • In 1331 Colin held land in Saint Martin and Saint Mary and Thomas held land in Saint Brelade;

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

This family has no connection with the ancient Seigneurs of Longueville, of the same name, but appears to have existed in the island from the period of the disjunction of the Channel Islands from the Duchy of Normandy.

In 1331, Colin Nicolle held two bouvees of land in the Parish of Saint Martin, and one in that of Saint Mary, while Thomas Nicolle held a bouvee in Saint Brelade, as appears by the Extente of that year.

The name is found, too, at a remote period in Guernsey, one of the earliest Bailiffs of that island being of this family. Hence springs the branch of Nicol of Penrose, county Cornwall, as appears by Lysons, and also by a pedigree of the Cornish section exemplified in the Harleian MSS., No. 1051.

The original branch of this house, so long settled in its ancestral Parish of Saint Martin, and co-representing most of the influential families of the island, is there represented by Edwin Henry Nicolle, eldest surviving son of the late Frederick Nicolle, surgeon; a younger branch, descended from a member of the parent stock, who settled in Grouville, and whose descendants were subsequently located for several generations in the Parish of Saint John, is represented by Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Nicolle (pictured), of Midvale, Saint Helier.

All our Nicolle trees were reviewed in 2019 and, although some questionable relationships were confirmed, and others amended, there still remains more doubt and discussion over some Nicolle trees than those of any other family. Inconsistencies undoubtedly remain to be corrected

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
