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 is a name introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. It is a form of the personal name Roger, which originally came but from the Germanic Rodger, composed of the elements 'hrod', meaning renown, and 'gari', a spear. There was already an Anglo-Saxon name 'Hrothgar', of similar derivation.
Roger is found in island documents early in the 14th century, and there was a short-lived family in the 17th century. Rogers first appears in Jersey church records in 1690, but then there was a gap until 1806 before a new family became established.
- Roger, 1309
- Rogier, French variant
