Record Search

Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Olliver family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Olliver, 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

This is a name found throughout Europe in a variety of spellings, and is believed to have its origins in Ancient Greece or Rome. It is associated with the olive branch, a symbol of peace, and started as a personal name.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey church records in 1803 with the baptism of William, Son of George and Ann. There is then a gap to 1834, and in the next four years, three children of John and Mary (or Nancy) Huard were baptised in St Helier.

The name has never been particularly numerous in Jersey. We have been sent three short trees, but have not been able to establish any links between them. A fourth tree contained impossible gaps between generations and has been ignored.
