Origins of surname

It is more than likely that the first holders of the surname had grey hair, although there is also believed to be a link in some families to the commune of Graye in Calvados, Normandy.

Early records

Although a very common surname, Gray did not appear in Jersey baptism records until the beginning of the 19th century. There was a marriage of John Gray and Elizabeth Le Boulanger in St Clement in 1695, but there are no records of their having children in the island.
