Origin of Surname

The name is derived from the town of Coutances on the Cotentin peninsular of Lower Normandy. The spires of Coutances Cathedral can be seen from Jersey's east coast.

Early records

The family is a relatively latecomer to Jersey, not being found in the 14th Century Assize Rolls and Extentes but first surfacing in the Extente of 1528. The Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains two Coutanches.

Jeanne Coutanche, who married Julien Vibert, was born in Jersey in about 1550.
