Origins of surname
The surname comes from the Norman personal name Alard, and further from the Germanic Adelard, composed of adal = 'noble' and hard = 'hardy'
The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was , somewhat surprisingly, the baptism of the first of four children of Lancelot Hallett, in St Saviour in 1661. Son Thomas had two children in the 1690s, but then the line died out until more Halletts arrived in Jersey in the 1830s.
