Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Jouanny family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Jouanny, 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.
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 the personal name Jouanny, which is a diminuitive of Jouan or Jean. It is particularly common in Brittany. There is a separate Jouanne family in Jersey which came from Normandy.
The family first arrived in Jersey in the 1870s. The family which became established then can traces its origins to Plaintel, a small town in the Cotes d'Armor department of north Brittany.
