Origins of surname

This name either originated with an inhabitant of Colwell in Cumberland or Devon, or of Colleville, in the department of Seine-Maritime in northern France.

Early records

The first record of the name in Jersey was of the marriage of Nicolas Colville to Rachel Bisson in St Martin in 1769. Several online trees suggest that Nicolas was born in St Saviour in 1838 or 1844, but there is no record of this and the trees appear to have largely been copied from each other.
