Origins of surname
We have no information at present on the origin of this surname.
The earliest record we have found in Jersey is the baptism of George Colback, the son of John and Margaret Kinchild in St Helier in 1753. There is no obvious link to this record and the baptisms of Jacques Colback and Elizabeth Gruchy's six children, which follow from 1784 to 1793. Jacques would appear to be the ancestor of the Colbacks in Jersey today. Although he is shown as Jacques in the St John baptism register, the St Saviour marriage register showed him as James when he married Elizabeth there in 1784. The register shows James of being from the parish of St John, but the 1841 ce3nsus return for James and Elizabeth, both 85, show that he was born in England.
