Origins of surname

Unsurprisingly, this name is linked to people with brown hair, although it may also have been given to someone who habitually wore brown clothing, such as a monk or priest

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was in 1707. This is one of those ubiquitous English surnames for which it is infuriatingly difficult to trace family trees in Jersey, because so many families have arrived separately in the island over more than three centuries. The French equivalent - Le Brun - is far older in Jersey records. In the 200 years after the 1707 record, there were 311 baptisms recorded, with the spelling Brown or Browne
