Origin of Surname
The original Le Brun would have had brown hair, although brun does have other meanings in old French and could have signified bright, sombre or unhappy.
Le Brun and Brun are very common names in Normandy and can be traced back to 1198, when a Petrus Brunnus was recorded. In Jersey, Richard Le Brun was living in 1331 in St Peter [Extente], where the family has long been settled, as it has been in St Ouen. The surname was also established in the rural part, la paroisse as opposed to La Ville, of St Helier, from the late 15th century, from which it spread to adjoining parishes.
The surname could have been formed in more than one location, within the Island.
Catherine Le Brun (1530- ) was the daughter of Servais (1500- ) of St Helier and married Nicholas Messervy.
