Origins of surname
There are two explanations for the derivation of this name. One suggests that it was a nickname for someone with white hair, or a white beard, or possibly a frosty disposition. The alternative view is that it was a personal name for someone born during frosty weather, which developed into a surname.
The name first appears in Jersey baptism records in 1768, when William, son of William and Jeanne Machon, who had married two years earlier in St Saviour, was baptised in St Helier.
