Origins of surname
Juhel is a Breton name, originally a baptismal name, derived from iud, meaning 'seigneur' and hael meaning 'generous' or 'noble'. There was a 6th century king in Brittany called Iudhael.
There has only been one Juhel family in Jersey. It started with Amand Juhel, born in 1845, apparently the illegitimate son of Angelique Juhel (1811- ). Amand married Mary Mauger and their son Francis Amand Juhel was one of the first electricians in Jersey.
He emigrated to Canada with his second wife and children. Four Juhels fought in the Great War. We have not been able to establish how Francis and Peter fit into the tree below.
