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
From the Greek stephanos meaning crown or wreath, this name means simply son of Steven.
Jersey baptism records go back to the late 18th century. From 1779 to 1829 there are six baptisms in the island for the children of different couples. The fathers were mostly soldiers.
Few of the Stevens families seem to have become established in Jersey for much more than a generation, some leaving for Canada, others Australia.
