Origin of Surname

The name was first used as a Christian name, after Saint Albinus, Bishop of Angers in the 7th century AD, and developed into a surname. It is found in the Assize Roll of 1309 and the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains three Aubins.

The International Genealogical Index shows Marin Aubin born in St Saviour about 1470 and marrying in 1498, fathering children Benoiste, Catherine, Charles, Genette, Jean, Thomas and Marin.

Although there are only eight Aubin entries in the current Jersey telephone directory, the family was one of the most numerous in the island for several centuries and there are over 2300 entries in the IGI.

Family records


Family trees

The first two trees overlap, but come from different sources. The second has more descendant lines. The third, added in 2013, contains more detail and follows roughly the same descent. The fourth, added in 2015, is from a separate source. It should be noted that these trees are lacking in details and there are considerable variations between each as far as certain parts of the Aubin lineage are concerned. This is particularly important when researching one of more of the various Clement Aubins to be found in the trees

In October 1902 the Opera House sent postcards to their regular clientele advertising the forthcoming performance of Mice and Men. This one was sent to Dr W D Aubin of Duhamel Place. This was the distinguished Jerseyman Walter Duret Aubin (1849-1917) who was elected a Deputy for St Helier in the States in 1895, and was appointed Jurat in 1899, then Lieut-Bailiff in 1906. Dr Aubin lived at 15-17 Duhamel Place with his wife Catherine (1865- ), daughters Jeanne and Margaret, son Charles, and his widowed mother Delphine. Charles was to become a lawyer and was Attorney-General and deputy to Bailiff Alexander Coutanche during the German Occupation
