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
This is a family name of Irish origin, an abbreviation of MacConready, an Anglicisation of the Gaelic MacConriada, meaning son of Conriada, which translates as ‘trained hound’, suggesting that the original Irish name was given to a dog trainer rather than a dog!
This family has been present in Jersey since the mid-19th century
