Origins of surname
Holt was an old English name for a wood, so the name suggested someone who lived in a wood, or copse.
The first baptism on record in Jersey is that of Digby Walker Holt, son of William and Frances Vesey, in St Lawrence in 1834 (no year shows in the transcription). He was followed in 1836 by Henry Irving. Their mother came to Jersey from France.
There were three Holt marriages before 1842. Soldier Samuel married Ann Sohier in 1804; Thomas married Jane Carter in 1820; and William, from Northumberland, married Betsy Mary Le Feuvre in 1840.
