Origins of surname
Rendu has two possible derivations: an illegitimate child or someone working in a monastery garden. It is suggested that the Le Rendu version found in Normandy, from where it arrived in Jersey in the late 18th century, is based on the second alternative.
The Le Rendu families (for there were more than one) came to Jersey from Coutances. Francois married his wife Francoise, also from Coutances, in St Saviour in 1789. George Ambrose Le Rendu and Rosalie Le Caplain, both also from Coutances, were married in St Helier in 1828. There is no record of either having children in Jersey. The first baptisms are the four children of Jean Le Rendu and Marie Coutanche in St Saviour in the 1820s and '30s.
