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 have not been able to find any specific reference to the origin of this name, but it is doubtless a variant of Pelletier, and derived from the French pelle for skin, indicating a furrier or trader in animal hides. The name is closely associated with the commune of Arquenay, in the Mayenne department of France.
The first member of the family to arrive in Jersey was Huguenot refugee Gabriel Pellier. He died in Trinity in 1704. His son Daniel married Marguerite Richardson in Trinity on 29 October 1715.
