Origin of Surname

The surname Duquemin is first found spelt as Duchemin in Guernsey. Literally meaning of the road, it is likely to originate from someone from the hamlet of Le Chemin, which is less than four miles from Dinard on the coast of Brittany.

The name can be found spelt Duquemin in the 'Le Mesurier Rough Index' by 1532 with a reference to Collenette Renouf, widow of Philippe Duquemin. By the end of the 16th century the name Duquemin was established in St Saviours, Guernsey.

  • The first mention of the name in Guernsey is when John Duchemin's necklace was stolen by Richard Marche; in Assizes Rolls (1309).
