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
Doublet is French for a precious stone, but it is not clear how the surname could be derived from that.
Alfred Adolphe Doublet and his wife Victorine Constance Le Mazurier arrived in Jersey from Coutances in 1860 (according to his son Edouard Doublet in his note book). However, we have found no trace of any birth or baptism records for the family whose tree appears below.
The following supposed variants of Dolbel have also been associated with Doublet by some researchers, but we believe that Dolbel and Doublet are distinct families in Jersey
- Dulbel 1309
- Dubel 1309
- Delebel 1299
Great War service
- Alfred Albert Edward Doublet (1900-1970) (St H) son of Edouard Georges Joseph Doublet and Marie Jeanne Augustine Vasselin, Private, Machine Gun Corps
