Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Romeril family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Romeril, 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 surname is found in over 70 known spellings including Roman, Romain, Roma, Romao, Romeo, Romero, Romeril, Romanet, Romilly, Romanski and Romero, to give just a few of the forms. It is recorded in almost every European country.

In general there are two origins, the first being that the name identifies a former citizen of Rome, but as the only place that most people had ever heard of outside their own country was Rome, this surname also became a description for all Italians!

Secondly the religious revival of the Middle Ages and the Crusades to free the Holy Land created a major boost for any name associated with centres of Christianity. Rome being the centre of Christianity, the name was even given to people who had been to Rome on a pilgrimage.

Early records

Bearers of this surname have been residing in Jersey from at least 1440, mostly in the northern parish of St John. Anthony Romeril is listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

Baptism records show that the family was established in St Saviour in the middle of the 16th century, and then in St Helier and Trinity, before spreading throughout the island. The following records predate church registers.

  • Leonard Romeril was born in Jersey about 1500 and married Jeannette Le Boutillier of Trinity, with which parish he was subsequently associated. He died in 1570
  • Francoise Romeril was born in St Saviour about 1536 and married Guyon Ahier
  • Servaise Romeril was born in Jersey about 1572 and married Vincent Marett
  • John Romeril was born in St John about 1574 and married Jane
  • Susanne Romeril was born in Jersey about 1576 and married Jean Pinel
  • Perrenelle Romeril was born in St John about 1584 and married Mathieu Romeril

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
