Jane Elizabeth Jarvis
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
The surname has Germanic origins, although the exact derivation is somewhat obscure. It comes from the personal name Gervase, said to be composed of geri = spear and vaulx valley. Howere, that makes no sense to us and other sources say the derivation of the second part is unknown.
The name appears in the StHelier baptism register in 1679, but there is a long gap until the next entry in 1819
