Origins of surname
This is a Normandy surname, found particularly in Calvados, but also Manche, and is derived from flambart, a Normandy fishing boat, so was probably applied to the owner of one of these boats. The term does not appear in texts until the end of the 16th century, and in the Middle Ages flambard was the word for the juices from roasting meat, and may also have given rise to the surname.
The name first appears in island records in the 1850s in Grouville. One Jersey family originated just across the water in Barneville-sur-Mer on the Cotentin coast of Normandy. There was a second immigrant - see trees below - probably from roughly the same area of the Cotentin, who may or may not have been related.
