Origin of Surname

Surprisingly for such a long-established Jersey name, which remains common today, no information on its derivation is provided by George Balleine in his Derivation of Jersey surnames.

However, French sources, which confirm that the name is peculiar to Normandy and Brittany, suggest that the derivation is as simple as a diminuitive of Robin, itself a diminuitive of Robert.

Early records

The name is found in the Extente of 1528 and the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains two Binets.

It is believed that the family originated in Maine in central France and were prominent in the town of Vendée, but it is not known how or when they came to Jersey.
