Origins of surname

We have not been able to find any information about the origins of this name.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey in St Mary. Thomas Grindin and Esther Le Vesconte were married there in 1679. Tracking the family's early generations is difficult, because there appear to have been three with the name Thomas married and having children baptised in the early 1700s. There was a Thomas Grindin married to Jeanne Le Brocq and another married to Anne Gibaut. There are no marriage records for these two couples.

Variants

  • Grindin
  • Grandin, a different family, but possibly a name variant, although not recognised as such in France. There is certainly some confusion between the two names in the Jersey records. There is a marriage record for a Jean Grandin, who was almost certainly the Jean Grindin shown as the father of children in baptism records.
