Origin of Surname

The Crill surname has been traced back only to the late 18th century in Jersey and we have not been able to find any information on its derivation.

Early records

The first record naming the family in Jersey is the marriage of George Crill to Susanne Esnouf at St Saviour on 16 May 1785. George is shown as coming from Hanover in Germany, and Susanne from Trinity. They settled in Trinity, and then in St John, and had eight children, who were baptised in these parishes
