Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Dimond family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Dimond, 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 is an old English name derived from deye, meaning a keeper of livestock. Although we accept that Diment is a variant, we are less positive about Diamond, and some of the other suggested spelling variations.

Early records

Dimond first appeared in Jersey records in 1860, when John, from Devon, married Jane Wright in St Helier.

Variations

  • Dimond
  • Diment
  • Diamond

Guernsey

Diamond is the common spelling in Guernsey, where it is said to be derived from the 'diamond', and would therefore not be a variant of Dimond.

The Diamonds of Guernsey originate from James Diment or Dimond (1789-)of Devon, and Elizabeth Druce (1792- ) of Somerset. They married on 21 Jun 1815 in Winsham, Somerset and moved to St Peter Port, Guensey between November 1819 and July 1820. Their first four children born in Guernsey between 1820 and 1824 were baptised as Diment, the following five were baptised as Dimond. By the next generation the name had changed to Diamond. Most of James and Elizabeth's children either died young or emigrated. The Diamonds in Guernsey today descend from their son William Thomas 1831-1895 and his wife Susanna Enticott, who was the only child to remain in Guernsey and have children.

Tips

The church record links above will open in a new tab in your browser and generate the most up-to-date list of each set of records from our database. These lists replace earlier Family page baptism lists, which were not regularly updated. They have the added advantage that they produce a chronological listing for the family name in all parishes, so you do not have to search through A-Z indexes, parish by parish.

We have included some important spelling variants on some family pages, but it may be worth searching for records for a different spelling variant. Think of searching for variants with or without a prefix, such as Le or De. To search for further variants, or for any other family name, just click on the appropriate link below for the first letter of the family name, and a new tab will open, giving you the option to choose baptism, marriage or burial records. You will then see a list of available names for that type of record and you can select any name from that list. That will display all records of the chosen type for that family name, and you can narrow the search by adding a given name, selecting a parish or setting start and end dates in the form you will see above. You can also change the family name, or search for a partial name if you are not certain of the spelling

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

Starting in August 2020 we are adding several thousand new records from the registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These will appear in date order within a general search of the records and are also individually searchable within the database search form
