Record Search

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

This is a west of France variant of Augé and Augier, which come from the Germanic Adalgari. Adal = ‘noble’ and gari = ‘lance’: clearly an important soldier.

The name is much more common in Guernsey than it is in Jersey.

Early records

The surname Ogier can be traced in Guernsey back to a deed which states that Michel Ogier des parties de Normandie was living in the Vale, Guernsey in 1511.

The origin of the surname may be from the legend of Ogier the Dane who was reputed to be the son of Geoffrey, King of Denmark in the 9th Century.
