Origin of Surname
Huelin is believed to be derived from Hue, a pet form of the given names Hugo and Hugues.
The family has been in Jersey since at least the early 14th century, with a Huelin recorded in the 1309 Assize Roll. But there are indications that a new Huelin family arrived in the island as Huguenot refugees in the 16th or the 17th century.
There are Huelins in Spain, but it is not clear whether these also originate from refugees from France or whether this is an entirely different family with a different derivation of the surname.
Huguenots in the United States generally identify their ancestors with French Huguenots.
Baptism records start with Jeanne, daughter of Timothee, in St Brelade in 1587, but Francoise Huelin is known to have been born in St Helier in about 1512 and married Andrew Aubin

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
