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 name was originally given to someone who lived by a notable outcrop of rock, a stone boundary-marker or monument; or it may be locational from one of the places called Stone.
This is one of a number of English surnames which have been present in Jersey since the mid-17th century, but were ignored by Charles Stevens, the compiler of the Comprehensive list of Jersey surnames.
