Origins of surname
Le Cordier was a rope maker, a very important person in Jersey's shipbuilding industry in the 19th century, although the name goes back some way earlier in Jersey, to the beginning of the previous century.
The first Le Cordier on record in Jersey was Thomas, the son of Jacques and Susanne Le Boeuf, baptised in St Helier in 1709.
The family had been present earlier, however, because Judith Le Cordier, who married Arthur Moyson, died in St Helier in 1719.
