Origins of surname

Bourgeois is French for middle-class, and it may be that the name was given to someone of that standing, or ironically to someone of lower class who acted the part.

Early records

The family is present in Jersey today, 22 members having been recorded in 2014, but it is not clear exactly what their ancestry is. There were only five Le Bourgeois births registered between 1850 and 2011, and the geographical spread among four parishes suggests that they may have been from two or more different families.

Only one family tree (see below) can be assembled with any certainty but the male line appears to have died out in the island in the second generation.

Evacuees

Records show that at least two members of the family who were evacuated from the island in 1940 before the German Occupation applied to return after the war ended. They were Albert Abraham Le Bourgeois, a barrel and box maker from St Helier, and Raymond Le Bourgeois, a farmworker born in 1910, who joined the Army and served as a private.
