St Brelade family records


The cover of the earliest St Brelade baptism register

This page provides links to lists of St Brelade family records.

We have now collected nearly half a million Jersey Church of England family records, including over 30,000 St Brelade church records from 1560 to 1940 (start and end dates vary by type of record).

Church records search

The indexes below for the Parish Church have not been updated since 2017. An extensive review of our records since then has resulted in many missing records being added and others being corrected. The gap between the up-to-date records in our database and the parish indexes has widened. We will not update the indexes again - it simply involves too much work - over 5,000 Jerripedia pages to edit every time a complete update is undertaken.

But don't despair, we have a new and improved search facility, which makes it much easier to locate ancestors you are searching for in Jersey church records. You don't have to know which parish they were born, married and buried in, or even exactly how their name was spelt.

Select the first letter of the family name you are searching for from the A-Z list below and a page will open in a new tab showing a list of names included in our baptism records. You can select a name to search for or change to marriage or burial records first.

Once the list of records is displayed you can narrow the search, using the accompanying form, by choosing a given name, parish or start and end dates. If you don't find the ancestor(s) you are looking for you can search for a variant of the family name, or just search for part of a name

Old indexes

  • We previously retained our original St Brelade family records index page, whose indexes were first created in 2013. This has led to confusion over which is the best set of indexes to consult and we are now only retaining those in this page, first created in 2017. But we must repeat the strong warning that the easiest way to search for records of your ancestors, and be sure of obtaining the most accurate and up-to-date records, is to use our DATABASE, by following this link, or any of the many others you will find throughout the site.
