This family came to Jersey from Ireland
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 Jersey family traces its descent to Ireland, this is a name of French origin, relating to the city of Troyes. It first appears in English records in 1273, although it probably moved from France to England at the time of the Conquest.
Patrick Troy (1825- ) and his wife Mary, nee O'Donnell, came to the island in 1852 and all Troys in the island today are descended from them.
