Origins of surname

Although this is both an English and French surname, we have found nothing in our usual sources to suggest its derivation. Heron is, of course, the name for a bird in both languages, and it is suggested that the name was given to someone with a particularly long neck, or someone tall and thin.

Early records

Heron first appears in Jersey church records in 1828.


  • Heron
  • Le Heron
  • Leheron

Family records


Family trees

Although Aimable and Jean Jacques Le Heron were born in St Remy des Landes, France, within a year of each other and moved to Jersey, we have not been able to confirm the obvious suspicion that they were brothers, or otherwise closely related
