John Champion

Origins of surname

When a person of standing was ordered to undertake an ordeal by battle over disputed land ownership, he did not participate in person but appointed a professional 'champion' to represent him.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey church records in 1805 with the marriage of Samuel Champion and Elizabeth Pipon. Samuel was followed by a succession of English immigrants over the next 30 years from Dorset and Kent.

There were also French Champion immigrants in Jersey in the late 19th century from Ploeuc-sur-Lie the small town in north Brittany where so many Jersey families originated.

Variants
