Origins of surname

Although undoubtedly an English surname, this has two possible origins. The most likely is a derivation from the popular personal name David, but it could also have come from the old English personal name Daei, meaning day.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey records in 1815, with further registrations in St Helier over the next two decades.
