Origins of surname
As might be expected, this name had its origins in the word 'angel' in the Middle Ages. It is derived from the Greek angelos, meaning 'messenger'. It was probably first given to someone of angelic temperament or appearance.
Two, or possibly three, different families appear in St Helier baptism records from the early 1840s onwards.
