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.

Origin of Surname
Le Roux was a redhead or had a good suntan.
It is far from clear whether Le Roux and Le Petevin dit Le Roux are the same family. It seems unlikely, because Le Roux baptisms can be found as early as 1560, and Le Petevin dit Le Roux from 1574
- Helier Le Roux was born in St Brelade about 1564 and married Collette Martel, daughter of Laurent and Richarde Valpy-dit-Janvrin
- Nicolas Le Roux was born in St Brelade about 1535
- Genette Le Roux was born in St Peter in about 1582 and married Thomas Balleine
- Thomas Poitevin dit Le Roux (1642- ) m Marie Langlois, d of Helier and Marie Estur
- Le Roux, 1461
- Le Petevin dit Le Roux
- Le Roulx 1607
- de Roux 1528
- Rooue 1512
Possibly separate family Le Rous, 1299
- Le Rous dit Le Vallot 1453
- la Rause 1320
- Le Rougetel, almost certainly a separate family
- Rue, Larue will be brought up in Web searches for Roux because they are pronounced very similarly, but the derivation is entirely different
The two trees above are essentially the same descendancy, with minor differences in detail. They should be studied together
- Descendants of Sohier Le Roux, more a Sohier than a Le Roux tree

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
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
