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 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.

Notes and references

  1. It is not clear where Jean Lys was born. He does not appear to have been baptised in St Brelade. Lis, and the alternative spelling Lys, is a known Huguenot name and it is possible he was a refugee from France
  2. Birth date uncertain. Marriage not found in Jersey Registers but is based upon burial record in the St Brelade register which states she was the widow of Jean Lis
  3. The change of spelling from Lys to Leigh at the next generation was not necessarily adopted by all Charles and Elizabeth's children
  4. Twin
  5. Twin
