Origins of surname

This English surname has Continental origins, coming from the baptisman names Ernault, or Arnolt, which in turn are derived from the Germanic arn = 'eagle' and wald = 'rule'

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey church records in 1812, but it was not until the middle of the century that a family became established. Eugene and Elizabeth Le Bas settled in St Helier where they had eleven children baptised.
