Origin of Surname

Quetteville is a village in Normandy, from which the family took its name. It can be found in the Short Inquisition of 1274

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

This family has been settled from a very early period in the eastern parish of St Martin, of which one of its members was Constable about 1330. Its name is very probably derived from the village of Quetteville, in Normandy ; and the fief of Quetivel, in Jersey, received the name of this family, who were probably its first proprietors. In 1331, Andrieu De Quetteville appears as one of the jury empanelled to ascertain the King's dues in the parish of St Martin, and in 1546 John De Quetteville was one of the procureurs of the same parish. The family has continued to reside in its old ancestral house, and is now represented there by Francis De Quetteville. Another branch also residing in St Martin is represented by Joshua-Dumaresq

A branch of the family appears to have settled at an early period in Guernsey. John De Quetteville was Bailly of that island in 1631, and his namesake was elected Jurat of its Royal Court in 1653.
