Origins of surname

This name dates back to the time of the Norman Conquest in England and was derived from followers of William the Conqueror known as fort en bras = 'strong in the arm'.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey in the St Ouen baptism register for Marie, daughter of James and Marie Le Brun, in 1730. Irishman James, and Marie were married in 1727. It was William Armstrong, from Newcastle, and Elizabeth Bertram, who were married in St Saviour in 1783, and had five children baptised in St Helier, who formed the first established family.
