Origins of surname

We have been unable to find any suggestions for the derivation of this surname. We have seen suggestions that the surname is extinct, and it certainly does not seem to be present in Jersey in the 21st century. Although the name sounds more Italian than French, the family which settled in Jersey in the 19th century came from the Cotes d'Armor department of Brittany

Early records

The family first appeared in Jersey records in the 1880s, and was still present through the Occupation.
