Origins of surname
A surname given to a man with blonde hair, this name is found predominantly in the Normandy and Picardy regions of France.
The name first appears in Jersey in the St Peter birth register in the 1840s, and then in other parishes in the next two or three decades. The family, which originated in Gouey in Normandy, does not appear to have become established in any particular part of the island.
