Origins of surname

The only reference we have found for this name (it is not from a source we have previously found particularly reliable) is that it means someone living on or near unseeded land.

It is also possible that it is a variant of the Normandy surname Lemire, from the old French mire for doctor, but because the family came to Jersey from Quintin in the north of Brittany, we think this is probably unlikely.

Early records

This is not a name which has ever been particularly common in Jersey since its arrival in the 1860s, and we suspect that there has just been a single family in the island since that time.
