Origins of surname

Although it might be thought that this was a name given to someone living near a lake, that is unlikely. The old English words lacu meant a watercourse, and laecc, a bog. Lake, in the sense we know it, did not appear in English until the 13th century, and is not thought to be the derivation of this surname

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Courntney Jackson, illegitimate son of Mary Lake in St Saviour in 1812. It was not until 1835 that a family was established by George Lake and his wife Nancy Syvret
