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
We do not have any information about the derivation of this French surname.
The first Merhet to arrive in Jersey appears to have been Pierre, born in the Cotes d'Armor department of Brittany in 1850. He came to the island with his wife Rosalie, and their daughter Louise was born in St Martin in about 1874. It is probable that Pierre Louis Marie Merhet, born in the same parish a year earlier, was also their son, but we have been unable to confirm this.
