Origins of surname
The name, found variously in Jersey birth registrations as Cuirot and Le Cuirot, does not appear until the mid-19th century.
According to census returns, Charles Auguste Cuirot, a blacksmith born in France in 1808, came to Jersey in 1842, with his wife Julie. Their children Charles Francois and Mary were born in Grouville in 1842 and St Martin the following year, but do not appear in the parish registers, and there is no return for Charles and Julie in the 1841 census.
However, the St Helier marriage register reveals that although Charles Auguste, and his wife Julie Rosalie, nee Travers, both came from France, they were married in Jersey in 1833. It is possible, of course, that they returned to France after their marriage and were back in Jersey again by 1842, when the first of their children was born. Itinerant farm workers from Normandy and Brittany have often returned home one or more times at the end of the season before finally deciding to settle in Jersey.
Charles and Julie almost certainly came from the Manche department of Normandy, because although the name is found elsewhere in France, it is overwhelmingly a Normandy name. Because they married in Jersey it has been impossible to trace Charles' ancestry in French family history records.

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.
Since August 2020 we have added 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
