Origins of surname

This name, found in every European country from the medieval period onwards, derives from the Hebrew male personal name Daniel. The name means "God is my judge" and its long popularity is associated with the bible's Book of Daniel", and in particular how his life was saved in the lions cage. The personal name was born by both a second century Christian martyr and a 9th century hermit, but its greatest growth period is associated with the Crusades of the 12th century

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey records in 1760, with the baptisms of Elizabeth Daniel, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Le Brun in St Peter. There is an earlier record in St Ouen, where the baptism of Elizabeth Danielson, daughter of Robert and Susanne Le Brocq, was registered in 1745. The name then reappeared in several families from the 1820s onwards.

The main Jersey family was descended from John Daniel, born in Tolpuddle, Dorset in the 17th century
