Origin of Surname

This is a surname of French origin and is believed to orginate in the Normandy town of Falaise, birthplace of William the Conqueror.

Early records

The name is more common in Guernsey than Jersey and it is probable that it originated in Jersey when members of the family settled there from Guernsey. Baptisms records seem to indicate two distinct families, one starting in the mid-18th century using the spelling Falaise, and the other appearing a century later using the spelling Fallaize.

However, there are several surviving records from the 14th century and even the end of the 13th, using a variety of spellings, suggesting that the family was established in Jersey far earlier and then died out.
