Origins of surname

Although an English name, Male is derived from old French masle, and implies a particularly masculine, virile man; although given the sense of humour of the Middle Ages English, it might have implied exactly the opposite.

Early records

The name can be found in the 12th century in England, but it did not arrive in Jersey until the middle of the 19th century
