Origins of surname
This surname is ultimately derived from the personal name Geoffrey. Just the two variants below are common outside of France, where geographical spelling variations including Jaffrai, Jaffrée, Jaffrès, Jaffret, and Jaffrain are all pronounced in pretty much the same way.
This surname made its first appearance in Jersey records in St Helier in 1732 with the marriage of Francis Jaffrey and Judith Le Gros.
- Jaffrelot – a diminuitive form found in Jersey today
