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.

Origin of Surname
The name is derived from the French for horse breeder.
The Extente of 1274 mentions Jourdain Chyvalir of Saint Mary and Matthieu dit Chivalir, a landowner in Saint Martin. In 1331 Robert Chevalier was one of the Sermentés for the Extente, for St Martin. The Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains one Chevalier.
Antoine Chevalier was born in Trinity in 1490. In 1507 Antoine Chevalier, possibly the same, who married the sister of Victor Le Vavasseur, appears in the Royal Court records for Saint Helier and he is the ancestor of that parish's branch of the family.
