Origin of Surname

Le Roux was a redhead or had a good suntan.

Early records

The name appears in the Assize Roll of 1309 and Johan and Thomas appear in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

It is far from clear whether Le Roux and Le Petevin dit Le Roux are the same family. It seems unlikely, because Le Roux baptisms can be found as early as 1560, and Le Petevin dit Le Roux from 1574

Early records

  • Helier Le Roux was born in St Brelade about 1564 and married Collette Martel, daughter of Laurent and Richarde Valpy-dit-Janvrin
  • Nicolas Le Roux was born in St Brelade about 1535
  • Genette Le Roux was born in St Peter in about 1582 and married Thomas Balleine

Possibly separate family Le Rous, 1299

  • Le Rous dit Le Vallot 1453
  • la Rause 1320
  • Le Rougetel, almost certainly a separate family
  • Rue, Larue will be brought up in Web searches for Roux because they are pronounced very similarly, but the derivation is entirely different
