Record Search


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

Orange has nothing to do with the fruit, which was unknown in Europe when surnames were formed. The word was a personal name and a place-name long before it was applied to the exotic fruit, which Portuguese merchants introduced in the 15th century. Orange was a female name.

The Surname Database has this expanded version of the name's possible origins:

"Recorded as Orange, Oran, Orans, Orringe, Orring, Orrin and possibly others, this unusual surname can be described as both English and French, with possibly a dash of Dutch. It originates from places called Orange in France, of which the most famous was the region near Lyon, from which the House of Orange, the royal family of the Netherlands, and the original Comptes d'Orange were the land owners. They were dispossessed in the religious wars of the 16th to 18th century. The surname was first introduced into England by one of the followers of William, Duke of Normandy, in 1066 - William de Orange. After a preliminary appearance in the Domesday Book of 1086, no further recordings of the surname are to be found until two centuries later in 1296, when John Orrenge of Sussex is so recorded.
"There was a female personal name variously spelt as Orengia and Orenge, which may have has influence on the surname."

In addition to the principality on the Rhone, there were Oranges nearer Jersey: a Chateau d'Orange on the Couesnon, the river which divides Normandy from Brittany, a Port d'Orange in the Bay of Quiberon, and a Prairie d'Orange at La Gohanniere in Calvados.

Early records

In 1130 Pierre, son of Didier, gave his Guernsey property to the monks of Mont St Michel "with the consent of Ozanne, his wife, and Orange, his daughter". In the Close Rolls of 1274 we hear of an Orengia Vautier in Jersey.

William Orange is recorded in the Assize Roll of 1309 as a juror for the parish of Saint Brelade, the parish where the family lived for centuries.

Arms

As borne by George Orange: Or, a bugle-hom, stringed and virolled, gules. Quartering : Per chevron, gi;les and or ; in chief two mullets, argent, a crescent for difference, for Pipon : Gules, a sand-glass, surmounted of a cross patee-fitcht-e, argent, between six mullets, in pale, or, for Renouf : and Azure, a fleur-de-lis, or ; on a chief, argent, a lion, passant, guardant, gules, for Le Brocq.

Crest: A bugle-horn, as in the arms.

Motto: What God wylls.

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
