Origins of surname
Jardin is French for garden, and the name signifies someone who owned or worked in a garden, or possibly someone from a place called Jardin. It is a name common in the north of France and Normandy.
Louis Dujardin came to the island from France in about 1719, when he married Thomasse Coulons, of Guernsey, at the Town Church. They had eight children - see tree below. He was the ancestor of most of the Dujardins born in Jersey in the 18th and 19th century, but his family line appears to have died out. Other Dujardins came to Jersey from France to continue the presence of the name.
However, there are much earlier records of variations of the family name, dating back as far as 1309.
