Origins of surname
The name is said by some to originate in the village of Gee Cross, near Stockport. However, the ultimate derivation is the old French geia, meaning a Jaybird, and the nickname was probably first given to somebody who was a 'bright chatterbox'.
The name first appeared in Jersey records in 1797 when William, son of Michael and Mary was baptised in Grouville. That was the only record for this family and it was not until the 1820s that a family became established.
