Origin of surname

We have not been able to find any information about the origin of the surname. It is just possible that it is a corruption of boissel - a small measure of corn.

Early records

The Boielle family arrived in Jersey with Huguenot refugee Jean, who married Elizabeth Sorel. Both the trees below are probably descendant lines from this Jean.

  • Boille

Family album

Monica Boielle, nee Chamberlain, with her son John, born in 1932, and her aunt and uncle, Annie and Frank Howard. Monica (1909-2005) was a teacher at Middleton Cheney village school from about 1930 until she left to get married to optician Richard Clarence Boielle, born in St Helier in 1905. John and his sister Andree were brought up by Annie and Frank Howard and Monica's sister Grif (Ursula) at their home at Sudbury Post Office in Derbyshire. As children they went to Jersey on holiday, just before the Germans arrived in 1940, and they were unable to leave until the end of the Occupation.
