Origins of surname

Boeuf is French for 'beef' and it is suggested that the name was given to someone who was strong, or 'well-built' like a bull.

Early records

The name has been present in Jersey records, in various spellings, since the late 13th century. Church records start to appear from the end of the 16 the century. This is one of the few old Jersey names which seems to have been concentrated largely in St Helier.
