Origins of surname

This name is derived from the old French mestivier meaning harvester or reaper.

It is a name common in the centre of France rather than in areas closer to Jersey.

Early records

The family arrived in Jersey in the early 18th century, but it is not known from where. It is thought that they may have been religious refugees in the final wave of Huguenots.
