Origins of surname

This French name has two possible derivations. The simplest and most likely is that it is a variation of Hautmont, meaning high hill, which would have been where those given the name were living.

Alternatively it may derive from the Germanic adalmund, meaning 'noble protection', or altmund, meaning 'old protection'.

It is a name which comes mainly from the Calvados and Orne departments of Normandy.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey church records in 1825, when two families settled, one in Trinity and one in neighbouring St Martin.
