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
We have been unable to find a derivation for Moignard, but it seems likely that, although the families are distinct in Jersey, it has the same origin as Le Moignan, which is a mutilated person, specifically without an arm.
The family appears to have used both 'Moignard' and 'Moignand' as its spelling, with 'Moignard' more prevalent in later years. It first appeared in St Helier in 1665, but this branch seems to have died out and the name next appears in St Lawrence in 1711.
