Origins of surname

Although we have found no specific reference to Le Bosquet, we thing that it must be a variant of Lebosquain, a name from the Calvados department of Normandy referring to somebody living in the bocage. This is a large area of the Cotentin peninsula with small fields, hedges and copses of trees, which was fought over bitterly after the D-Day landings in the Second World War. The word comes from the old French bosc, meaning wood

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Rachel Le Bosquet, daughter of Pierre and Marie Vibert, in St Mary in 1649. The name appears to have died out in the island towards the end of the 18th century, but remains common in several variants in Normandy
