Origins of surname

This surname started with the German personal name Ludwig, and progressed through French history via Clovis, Clouis to Louis. It is derived from Hludwig, hlud = loud or famous, wig = battle

Early records

The name is first found in the St Helier baptism register in 1688, but then there is a gap of a century, and it is not until the early 19th century that families begin to be established
