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
We have no specific information on the derivation of this name, but as with other surnames starting 'Hou-', we suspect that it may be associated with houx, the French for holly. Although the name would appear to be French, our research suggests that the family probably came from Belgium.
The name first appeared in church records in 1818, but Les Hougueis, probably a variant, appeared as a fief name in 1331. Lucas Houguez, who is at the head of the tree below, lived in Alderney, and his grandson Abraham, who was born there, moved to Jersey.
- Les Hougueis 1331 (as a fief name)
