Origins of surname
The name was probably given to someone who lived near a cross.
The first baptism registered in Jersey was that of Philippe La Croix in St Brelade in 1737, the illegitimate son of Jeanne. Four or more further La Croix families appear to have settled in the island in the 1780s.
One is shown in the tree below, descended from Claude Marie La Croix and Marie Marguerite Berthe, both from France, and married in St Helier in 1802, after the baptism of their two children in 1800 and 1801. There were earlier baptisms of the children of Walter and Anne Laing, Pierre and Madelaine Thoury, and Jean and Marguerite Le Moigne.
