Origins of surname

This name has nothing to with the celestial body but has its origins in Moyon, a place in Normandy. William de Moion was a follower of William Le Conqueror.

An alternative derivation is from the old French moun = 'monk' referring to a lay person who led a monkish way of life.

A third possible origin is the Cornish mon = 'thin'

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of eight children of James Presley Moon and Elizabeth Smith between 1842 and 1857
