Record Search

Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Harding family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Harding, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

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.

New records

From August 2020 we have started adding records from non-Anglican churches, and this process will continue as more records, held by Jersey Archive, are digitised and indexed. Our database now includes buttons enabling a search within registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These records will automatically appear within the results of any search made from this page.

Origins of surname

This name means son of the hard one.

Early records

The first appearance of the name in Jersey church records was in 1716, when George son of John was baptised in St Lawrence. There is then a gap until 1803 when Catherine, daughter of another John and Mary, was baptised in St Helier. It was not until 1829, with the baptism in St Helier of Joseph Thomas son of John and Esther Elizabeth Gallichan, that a family began to become established.
