Origins of surname

This surname, and the variant Guernier, has its origins in a personal name, Wanhari, from Germanic roots. Wan = 'hope', hari = 'army'. It is a name mainly from the west of France.

Early records

The early Jersey families came from France and were established by the 1820s. More than one unrelated family is believed to have settled in the island. Although the spellings Guernier and Guenier are found together in some family records, the two families seem to have been quite distinct in Jersey.
