St John family records
A page of 16th century records in a St John marriage register
This is the first time that we have been able to present St John records in the same format as the other parishes, with just four indexes. 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.
We are aware that there pre-1713 records for many smaller St John families missing from our database, and we are now working through the original registers to identify and transcribe the records for those families not yet included. We are also aware that, although we believe that the later records include all St John families and are much more complete, there is a small number of records for the period 1713 to 1813 which are not in the database, and we are working to identify these, too.
The Jerripediabmd searchable database, on which our indexes are based, now contains nearly half a million Jersey Church of England family records, including a new batch of over 30,000 baptisms, 50,000 burials and 30,000 marriage records, which have also been added to 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.
Baptisms 1592 to 1904
Marriages 1600-1940 indexed by groom's surname
Marriages 1600-1940 indexed by bride's surname
- We have also retained our original St John family records index page whose indexes may contain further details for some records. The index of Public Registry birth records from 1842 is also on this page.
