Origins of surname

The name is derived from a Scandinavian word meaning a stream in a hollow.

Early records

This name is first found in the St Mary baptism register in the 1830s, when four children of Victor Pierre Houillebecq and Betsy Vautier were baptised.

However, there is no known descendancy for this family and it is the descendants of Pierre Houillebecq, of St Remy des Landes, in the Manche Department of Normandy, who settled in Jersey and established the family there today.
