Origin of surname
Briard has its origins in France and indicates a person who came from Brie. The name is still present in Normandy today.
The Briard family became established in St Ouen in the mid-17th century, but had been present in the island since at least the beginning of that century, mainly in St Helier. The tree below - Descendants of Thomas Briard - suggests that the St Ouen Briards are descended from the earlier St Helier family, but this is not certain.
- Ernest Victor Briard, the first Jerseyman killed in World War 1
