Origin of Surname

The name is derived from the French 'ami', meaning friend, and probably has the same roots as Amy, although the two families are distinct in the island and are usually listed separately.

Early records

Both Amy and l'Amy families have been present in Jersey for many centuries. The form Lamy is found in a 1435 record, and the first l'Amy baptism was in 1547.

More L'Amys only arrived from Normandy in the 17th century onwards. Several different families seem to have arrived from different areas of France from the 17th to 18th centuries.

Variants

  • Amy Although this family probably has a common root, it has developed separately and is not considered as a variant
  • Lamy, 1435
  • L'Amy, 1528
