Origins of surname

As might be expected, this surname was originally given to a wood worker, a carpenter, or charpentier in French.

Early records

A number of immgrant Carpenter soldiers and others from the south of England married Jersey girls in the first half of the 19th century, but the first record is that of the marriage of Thomas and Sara Helier in Grouville in 1713, followed by the baptism of their daughter Sara two years later.
