Origins of surname

This surname may be a derivation of Guille, the Norman-French personal name which was a diminuitive of Guillaume (William). Alternatively it may come from the Irish personal name Gilla, meaning a friend or servant

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Rachel, daughter of Arthur and Rachel Gill, in St Helier in 1736. It was not until the mid-19th century that a family became established
