Origins of surname

Although not listed in any of our regular sources, we believe that it is most likely that this name originates with a resident of Le Hommet-d'Arthenay, a commune in the Manche department of Normandy

Early records

Jean Baptiste D'Arthenay and Marthe Hubert were married in St Martin in 1732. The groom was shown as coming from St Saviour, but was probably a native of France. The couple had no children.

Michel d'Arthenay and Susanne du Hamel, whose marriage was not recorded in Jersey, had five children baptised in St Helier from 1728 to 1739.
