Origin of Surname
This French name has as many variants throughout the country as any other we have encountered. Journeaux is the spelling found in Normandy and Picardy in the north of the country. The variant 'Journal' gives a clue to the derivation of the name. Jour is French for 'day' and a journal was the area which could be worked by a labourer in the course of a day. This gave rise to placenames such as Journet and Journaux, subsequently applied to the people who came from there.
The earliest recorded holder of the name in Jersey was Philippe Journeaulx, Seigneur of Catelet about 1456.
Jehannet Journeaulx is included in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550.
Baptism records go back to 1550 and the name is still found in Jersey today.
