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.

Origin of Surname
The original Le Long was a tall person.
Jean Le Long is found in the St Saviour baptism register as early as 1597. Burial records suggest that he was the son of Guillaume and died in infancy. A child of Guillaume who was not baptised had been buried the year before.
The burial records for neighbouring Trinity suggest that the family was living there in 1615 when Guillaume and a daughter Jeanne died, followed in 1621 by Guillaume's wife Catherine. There is a further burial in Trinity of Jeanne, wife of Jean, in 1646.
Two baptisms were registered in St Helier earlier in the 1640s, the children of Jean.
The name does not reappear until 1733, when Louis Le Long, a foreigner, married Elizabeth Philippe in St Helier. The baptism of Jean Le Long, 'son of Jean' and Elizabeth was registered in 1735, and the baptism of Louis, 'son of Louis' and Elizabeth in 1738. This suggests that the first record was incorrect, and that Louis was father of both children.
Louis snr, Elizabeth and Jean all died and were buried within three days in September 1741.
There is another gap before it appears that several Le Longs from France settled in Jersey during the 19th century.

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
Since August 2020 we have added 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
