Origins of surname
This is a Hebrew personal name for both boys and girls, but we have no information on how it became a family name in Jersey. We have found no record of the name either in England or France.
There are records of this surname and its variants in official Jersey documents as early as the 13th century, and baptisms appear in the St Brelade church registers in the 16th. The family appears to have died out in the island in the mid-19th century.
