The 1843 St Peter record of the marriage of Mary Ann Ivey and John Oppie
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
Said to be particularly popular in Cornwall, this name is of Anglo-Saxon and Norman origins. It either comes from the personal name Ivo, related to the old word for a longbow, or the place name Ivoy, which is also derived from the longbow, or the yew from which it was made.
The surname first appeared in the St Helier baptism registers in the second decade of the 19th century
