Le Miere family page

This family name, which is still present in Jersey today, can be found in island records as far back as the early 14th century, but there is unlikely to be any link between the two


Annie Esther Le Mierre (1885- ) married Harold Arthur Hamon (1887-1965) in 1912

Origin of Surname

Le Mière was the doctor. The word is a variant of Le Mire, old French for a doctor or surgeon

Early records

The name appears in the Assize Roll of 1309

  • Guille Le Mière was born in Jersey about 1479 and married Perrine Messervy
  • Guille Le Miere (1500- ) St Saviour was the son of Guille (1472- ) possibly the same as above.

There are baptism records for Le Miere from 1656 onwards, but it has proved impossible to trace the later records to these early families and we believe that the male lines of the family probably died out in Jersey and further Le Mieres came to the island from Normandy, where the name is very common, in the 19th century.
