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
Although the name arrived in Jersey from England, it is of French origin. Richmond in Yorkshire was named after a Richemont in France after the Norman Conquest. The derivation is from riche for rich or splendid, and mont, for hill.
The name first appears in Jersey in the middle of the 19th century with the arrival of James Isaac Richmond and Sarah Ann Balls, probably from Essex.
