Origin of Surname

The name is stated in Charles Stevens' Comprehensive list of Jersey surnames to come from the French for 'little mullet', rouget being French for 'red mullet', but we have not found anything in French sources to indicate why this should have led to a surname.

On the contrary, French sources suggest that Rouget is a diminuitive of rouge, indicating a little, red-haired man, and making Le Rougetel a very small red-haired man.

Early records

The first baptisms appear in the Grouville register in 1584, and after this the family is found almost exclusively in Grouville and the neighbouring parish of St Clement, with just a few later baptisms in St Helier.


  • Le Rougetel, 1607
  • Le Rogetell 1528
