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.
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
The name is derived from a Scandinavian word meaning a stream in a hollow.
This name is first found in the St Mary baptism register in the 1830s, when four children of Victor Pierre Houillebecq and Betsy Vautier were baptised.
However, there is no known descendancy for this family and it is the descendants of Pierre Houillebecq, of St Remy des Landes, in the Manche Department of Normandy, who settled in Jersey and established the family there today.
