Origins of surname
Le Boulanger was/is the baker. The name appeared in northern France in the 12th century as boulenc, derived from the Netherlands bolle for round bread. Previously bakers in France were called pestour.
The first Le Boulanger baptism in Jersey was in St Saviour in 1582. There is then a gap of 40 years until the next record appears in St Martin. The bulk of the family's baptisms were in that parish, with a handful in neighbouring St Saviour and Grouville.
