Record Search

Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Jacob family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Jacob, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

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

Originally a personal name, this comes from the Hebrew Yaakov. The form Jacob became a surname in England and elsewhere in Europe, before it was ever used as a Jewish surname in any of its many spelling variations

Early records

The first Jacob/Jacobs record is the baptism of Jean, son of Jean, in St Saviour in 1653.
