Origins of surname
This is a name which is particularly linked to the Manche department of Normandy. Avoine is French for oats and the name was probably given to someone who grew oats, although Normandy is not particularly noted for the crop.
The first baptisms were of the children of Louis d'Avoine and Elizabeth Gruchy, from 1793 onwards in Trinity. There is no record of the couple marrying in Jersey.
