Origins of surname

This name is a form of canning - a name with two possible origins, the first, and most likely, being locational from Cannings in Wiltshire. Recorded as Cainingham in the Domesday Book of 1086 and as Caninges in the 1091 Pipe Rolls of that county, the name derives from the Olde English caningas meaning people of Cana, a name of uncertain origin. A second possibility is that Channing or cannon are anglicised forms of the Gaelic Irish name O Cainin or Canain, translating as 'descendants of Wolf - cub'. Channing is quite numerous in Ireland, especially in West Ulster and North Connacht.

Early records

The name arrived in Jersey around 1859, when the first of ten children of James Channing and Harriet Andrews was baptised in St Helier. The last child was born in 1883. James, a chimney sweep, was born in Tiverton, Devon in about 1840 and married Harriet in either in Newbury, Berkshire, in 1859, just before they arrived in Jersey, or in the island soon after their arrival. Two of their children, Thomas and Herbert, followed James into the business as chimney sweeps
