Origins of surname

Although this name would appear to be of French origin and to have been present in Jersey in one form or another for some 700 years, we have not found a derivation for Le Caumais or anything approximating to it.

Caumes, a name from the south of France, is said to be a variant of Calmes, which either means 'calm' or possibly indicated someone living in pasture land.

Early records

This family is found exclusively in St Saviour from the first baptism records in the mid-16th century, until the name disappears 200 years later.
