Origins of surname

This surname comes fro the old French personal name Humfrey. Its derivation is hun = 'bear cub' and frid = 'peace'. It's difficult to understand how a child could be given a name with that meaning, but that's what the surname experts say

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the 1724 St Helier baptism of Thomas, son of Griguery Humphrey and Elizabeth Pennell
