Origins of surname
This name is almost certainly a variant of Dagorne, a name found in the Morbihan department in south Brittany, and Dagorn, the spelling used further west in Finistère. It was either a term applied to a ridiculous old woman, or two an old cow which had lost a horn.
Charles Daghorn, son of Jean and Anne Laurens, was baptised in St Peter in 1845, but there is no information about any possible descendants, and the family does not appear in island censuses.
Ernest Daghorn, born somewhere yet to be established in France, came to Jersey at around the beginning of the 20th century and married Emily Blampied, from Guernsey. They had four children, the first born in St John, and the other three in St Peter.
