Origins of surname
The family came to Jersey from Brittany, but we have no information at present about the derivation of the name.
Census returns suggest that the first Le Fondre to arrive in Jersey was Francois Mathurin, born in Pleuc in 1848. The family settled in St Mary, but the children of Francois and his wife Anne Francoise, do not appear to have been baptised in Jersey. The first baptisms in the St Mary register are of the children of their son Jean Marie Francois and Angeline Le Capon, of St Saviour.
Although the male line of this family appears to have died out in Jersey, the name is still present in the 21st century, but we have no information on the ancestry of today's Le Fondres.
