St John family records

This is our main, updated St John family records index page, which contains a large number of new records.

This is the first time that we have been able to present St John records in the same format as the other parishes. All early records previously shown in separate A-Z indexes on our old St John family records page have now been added to the database and are included in the indexes on this page.

However, there are many records for which CIFHS transcriptions were lost and they are missing from our database. We are now working through the original registers to identify and transcribe those missing records. They were previously believed to be for smaller families but it is now clear that there are thousands of St John records for all families which have not been accessible since the transcriptions went missing.

Although we believe that the later records are much more complete, there are records from 1813 onwards which are also not in the database, and we are working to identify these, too.

The process of adding these missing records to the database and then update these indexes will take some time to complete, so we are producing temporary indexes for those records already extracted, which will be updated from time to time, until the work is complete and the main index can be updated to include all St John baptism records.

The index for records from 1594 to 1813 will include some duplicates of records already in the database and the full parish index, but individual records may contain extra information. The separate index for records from 1813 onwards will contain more duplicates, but until the very time-consuming process of isolating duplicate records and choosing those with more detail is completed, we believe that it is more useful to provide researchers with an index containing duplicates, rather than offering no access to previously missing records.

The Jerripediabmd searchable database, on which our indexes are based, now contains nearly half a million Jersey Church of England family records, which are also included in the Jerripedia parish indexes.

The database now holds nearly 16,000 St John church records from 1592 to 1940 (start and end dates vary by type of record). The database has links to the page images of the original transcriptions of baptism records up to 1842, which contain more information, including godparents.
