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
The name is derived from the Germanic Hrodwald, meaning 'glorious ruler'. It is mainly found in Brittany. The family in the tree below came from St Jacut du Mene in Cotes d'Armor.
The name appears in Jersey church records at the turn of the 16th-17th century, and in other records as early as 1515, but must have died out. It reappears early in the 20th century with the arrival of Eugene Rouault from Brittany.
