I had to go to the Registry Office for something else this morning so had a quick look while I was there - the Ann Smith found by Stewart born in St Martin in 1855 was the daughter of William Smith, mariner, and Mary Badier.

A John Thomas Dujardin did exist at that time in Jersey. He was born in 1810 and was a China and Glass Merchant - whether he was the godfather is of course another question.

Jersey birth certificates cost £20 plus postage but you will find pretty much the same information on baptism records. Church of England baptism records for the date you want are on Ancestry.

Unfortunately there are no Nevilles listed in the folder of Green Street memorial inscriptions neither were there any in the folder of burials in the Strangers cemetery which covered some of the same time period.

A headstone is unlikely, most of the cemeteries that were in existence at that time are no longer there and the one that is - Green Street - is so overgrown that it's almost impossible to find anything in it. The Archive does have a list of memorial inscriptions for Green Street that I can look at next week.

There is an entry in the St Helier burial records for a Louisa Maria Neville, aged 6 and buried on the date you have. Her parents were John Graham Neville and Maria Susan.
A transcription of this record is on the Jersey Archive site (subscribers section) and it is also on Ancestry, search the Jersey burial records with just Louisa Maria, they managed to miss out her surname.

The name Vokey does not appear in any Jersey records which makes me think that it did not start out as that but has changed over the years. Possible candidates could be Vautier, Vaudin, Vauquier or Valpy, most of which are common Jersey names.
If Sarah was a Channel Islander it is likely that she came from Sark rather than Sunk Island.

Elizabeth Jane died on 1st Nov 1851 of TB and I imagine the other one buried there is the baby George Henry.
