Origins of surname

This name indicates a maker of boules in France. It is common in Brittany spelt either Boulier or Boullier, but the variant Bouillier, found in Jersey, is more common elsewhere in France. There are 70,000 Boulier and Boullier records in the Geneanet database, but only 7,000 Bouilliers

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was in 1845 for Boullier and 1871 for Bouillier. The variant Boulier has not been found in Jersey records. There is considerable confusion over spelling in the records but it appears that all names should be Boullier, with the exception of one family of Bouilliers
