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
Fixot is a name known in many areas of France, particularly the Dordogne department in the south-west, but we have been unable to find any reference to its origins.
Denis Fixot, who came to Jersey in the first half of the 18th century, is believed to have been born in the Dordogne department of south-west France. See tree below. In 1851 his great-grandson John, a surgeon, whose gravestone is shown below, was living in King Street with his wife and daughters. The Charles Fixott whose photograph is in the album below was Denis Fixot's grandson and the surgeon's father. They would have been an affluent family to be able to afford portrait photographs within a decade or so of their first availability in Jersey. The painting in the box on the right is of his sister Elizabeth, and is further evidence of the family's affluence.
