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

Origins of surname
Fromage is French for cheese, so the name was probably given to someone who made or sold cheese. The name is found throughout France in a variety of spellings. Fromage is the spelling found in Jersey, and Fromage or Fromagé is the form commonly found in the Normandy departments closest to Jersey - Manche and Calvados.
Other variants shown below are not found in Jersey.
It is also noted that the name may have been given to a round plot of land, or a large round anthill, and thence to someone living nearby.
The name, which is still present today, has never been common in Jersey since it arrived in the 1870s. There were only four births registered up to 1920, and these were in St Lawrence (2), St Martin and Trinity.
