Origins of surname
This French surname apparently translates as 'putting up bristles like a hedgehog', which perhaps suggests that the original holder of the name was a bristly, defensive person.
This family is still present in Jersey today, and first appears in island records in the second half of the 19th century, with probably two immigrant families from nearby France arriving at more or less the same time.
