Origins of surname
The name is almost certainly French, but our French sources have failed to reveal any suggestion for the derivation of the name. Taking a literal translation of modern French, the name could suggest 'the missing one' or 'the forgotten one'.
The Le Manquais family has been present in Jersey since the early 16th century. Edmond Le Manquais was born in 1510 and married a Miss Baudains in 1534. The earliest church record is that of the baptism of Collas Le Manquais, son of another Collas, in St Brelade in 1560. One of the two - it is not known which - was buried in 1562.
The earliest available family tree starts from Pierre Le Manquais, married in 1705, but his baptism does not appear in church records. It is possible that he was the son of another Pierre, son of Pierre, son of Jean, son of Pierre, son of Jehan, but it has not yet been possible to prove this descendancy and create a family tree from the early church records.
