Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Stocall family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Stocall, 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.

Origin of Surname

The origin of this surname is not certain, although it would appear to have the same derivation as 'Stockall', a surname of Anglo-Saxon origin, and an English locational name from Stockeld in Spofforth, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The placename was recorded as "Stochilde" in the 1166 Pipe Rolls of Yorkshire and derives from the Olde English elements "stocc" meaning trunk or stump of a tree, with "helde" a slope; hence "slope with tree-trunks". The first element may also be the Olde English "stoc" a place; hence "sloped place".

Early records

The name has been present in Jersey in various spellings since the early 15th century, but there were only ten baptisms over 50 years. The family tree below dates back to the 15th century and carries on to the 17th, but many of the names in the tree do not feature in baptism records. The family history below throws a little more light on the subject, but the absence of church records for some of the individuals named in puzzling.

Tips for using these links



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

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
