Origins of surname

This is a Normandy name derived from the old freich breuillis, meaning a thicket or coppice. The name may have been given direct to someone living in such a spot, or have come via a placename - there is a hamlet called Breuilly at Incheville in Normandy.

Early records

The first baptisms in Jersey were in St Martin in the 1890s, probably the children of an immigrant farmworker.
