Origin of Surname

Marie is one of the few surnames which started out as a female personal name, although Marie is also used for males in France, usually in combination with another name (eg Jean Marie). It is one of the commonest surnames in Normandy.

Early records

A Marie family was established in Grouville by Thomas and his wife Lucasse in the second half of the 16th century. A second family was established in St Helier about 50 years later by Samson, whose wife's name is not known. Samson does not appear to have been part of the Grouville family, and it is impossible to say whether the two families had a common ancestor in the island.

Between them they account for over two-thirds of Marie baptisms in Jersey.
