Origins of surname
This surname did not appear in Jersey until the mid-19th century. The family came to Jersey from Paris. There is a commune called Saint Paer in the Seine Maritime department of Upper Normandy, which is presumably where the surname originated.
- de St Paer
The form de Ste Paer is found in some Jersey records, including the official Roll of Honour of WW1 casualties, but this is incorrect. The name Saint Paer is male, not female.
