Origin of Surname

Marais means 'marsh', so the original holder of the name probably lived in or near marshy ground. Other derivations of the name in Jersey include Dumaresq (du Marais) and Saumarez, but the families are not connected.

Early records

Joseph Louis August Marais, born in France in 1814, moved to Jersey and established the island branch of the family.
