Origin of Surname

Balleine suggests that le seeleur is old French for the leaper ('the original bearers of the name may have been athletes, but more probably professional tumblers') but Jean Arthur, in her history of the family says that the name is derived from 'he who seals or applies the seal'.

The Breton surname Le Sciellour is derived from sciell or sceau, meaning 'seal'. This would tie in with the Jersey variant Le Scelleur.
