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
Son of Robin, from Robert; hrothi and bertha = 'fame' + 'bright'
For an English surname this arrived comparatively early in Jersey, with the baptism of Susanne, daughter of William Robinson and Susanne recorded in St Helier in 1688. It would be almost another 100 years before the first family, that of William and Elizabeth Vandel, became established.
- Robin, a separate family
