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 Breton name from the Germanic personal name Raginward (ragin = 'advice' + ward = 'guardian')
Renouard did not arrive in Jersey until the middle of the 19th century. Strangely, for such a latecomer, the name does not feature at all in St Helier records, but only in country parishes, from St Ouen in the west, to Trinity in the north and Grouville in the east.
These wills created by members of the Renouard family are now held by Jersey Archive.
