Origins of surname
This is a most unusual family. It was present in Jersey from the early 14th century until the mid-19th, but then appears to have died out. There were 158 family baptisms in the period from 1540 to 1834, 148 burials and 30 marriages, the great majority of them in St Saviour. We have been unable to find any trace of the name outside Jersey. There is also no mention of the name in any of our usual sources for the origin of surnames.
The first Le Tubelin in Jersey family records was Lunaire, who is recorded as the father of three children baptised in St Saviour between 1540 and 1559. But Charles Stevens, author of our Comprehensive list of Jersey surnames indicates that the name was present as early as 1309, suggesting that it was mentioned in the Assize Roll of that year. It was certainly mentioned in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550: ffrances, Guillaume, Lunaire and Philippe all feature in that document.

In Jersey Archive catalogue (L/F/57/3), there is a mention of a Drouet Le Tubelin, who must have been born sometime late in the 15th century, and his son Michiel. The entry is dated 28 October 1535:

The Le Tubelin family was closely associated with the Ahiers in the 17th century. Descendants of Lucas Ahier - 2 shows that between 1604 and 1615 three Ahier men married Le Tubelins, and there was a fourth such marriage in 1675. The association goes back further to 1600, when Jacques Le Tubelin married Marie Ahier.
