Origin of surname

Hooper appears to be a name of English origin, though we have been unable to find any information about its derivation. Houper may have been a mis-spelling which appeared in later records, or an attempt to give the name a French image in 17th century Jersey. The spelling seems to vary from one generation to the next within the same family in Jersey.

Early records

The name first appeared in the Grouville baptism register in 1584 and the majority of the baptisms on record were in that parish.


  • Hooper, 1607
  • Houper, 1664
