Origin of Surname

The name is derived from the Medieval Christian name Anslech (Anslech of Briqucbec was tutor to Duke Richard of Normandy


According to Payne's Armorial of Jersey, the family in Jersey in the 19th century originated in Guernsey and later became established in Jersey, marrying into the Nicolle and Lempriere families.

However, it is also clear that another line of the family was present in Jersey from the 14th century, the Extente of 1331 showing that it held land in St Peter.
