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.

Origins of surname
This is a surname which originates in a place name, probably Ebdon in Somerset, although Hebden in Yorkshire is also in the frame. The derivation of the name is from the old English heope = 'rose hips' and denu = 'valley'.
Henry Ebdon from Dorset married Sara Reed from Hampshire in St Saviour in 1786, but there is no record of the couple having children. The only other Ebdon marriage before 1842 was that of Thomas and Rosamond Mosey in St Helier in 1822. They had four children baptised in the parish during that decade.
