Origins of surname

This name is of French origin and is found in Normandy spelt Chapron. It comes from the old Frenchn chaperon, referring to hairstyle or a hood, so was probably given to someone who wore a hood or had a particularly striking hairstyle.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey records from about 1870 onwards, when births were registered in St Lawrence and St John. Jean-Marie Chaperon and his wife Marie came to Jersey from Marne and their children Louisa, Emilie and John were apparently born in St Lawrence in 1876, 1878 and 1881, although the births were not registered there.
