The 1754 St Martin record of the marriage of Elizabeth Jackson and Jean Aubin
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
Simple, this one: son of Jack.
The name was first recorded in Jersey in 1705, with the marriage of David and Marie Blampied in Grouville. In 1754 Jeanne daughter of John and Elizabeth Remfret, was baptised in St Helier. Here we have another example of spelling problems in church registers, because the couple were married earlier that year in St Lawrence as Jean and Elizabeth Rainfrey. This baptism was followed by John, son of Joseph and Margaret Jackson the following year.
