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
There are various theories for the origins of this French name. It may somehow be linked to pin, the French word for a pine tree. However, the variants shown below suggest that it is more likely to come from the Breton word pennglaon for a charcoal supplier. Separate the Breton words into penn = head, and glan = charcoal and we arrive at someone with black hair, which is a highly likely origin for a surname. Pengloan for wooly haired is not considered a possible origin. The English West Country name Pengelly may have a similar derivation.
- Le Penglau
