Origin of Surname
This is a surname derived from the French court for short, meaning a short man.
The family should not be confused with de la Court/de la Cour, which is separate and has a distinct derivation.
There was a Le Cour family in St Brelade from the mid-16th century (some records spelt Le Court), and then, from the early 17th century, a Le Court family in St St Peter, which died out within 200 years. It is not clear if these two families were connected. There are clearly missing baptism records and it has only been possible to assemble a very short Le Court family tree.
