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
Although the exact spelling is not encountered in France, the variants of justice are, and they indicate that the name is derived from the French juge. But this does not necessarily mean that the name was originally given to a judge, because juge was also the location of the gibbet for public hangings.
It has also been noted that a 1907 article on the Jersey family by the Rev J A Messervy attributes the name to residents of a French town called Ville es Jutizes, near Câtillon. However, we can find no other record for this Jutizes, and the only French placename Câtillon belongs to a small commune called Câtillon-sur-Sambre in the Nord department. There are several communes called Castillon.
It can be seen that the name has been present in Jersey in one spelling or another for 700 years, but baptism records show that the family appears to have died out about a century after the first baptism was registered in 1570. The majority of those baptisms were in Grouville.
