Origins of surname

Ultimately derived from the Latin magister = 'superior', this name implies someone who was in charge, not necessarily of a school class, but possibly the elder of a village. It also came to be a general term for an educated person

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of John, son of William and Elizabeth Masters, in St Helier in 1814
