Origins of surname
Moulin is French for 'mill' and the name was given either to a miller, or more likely to someone who lived near the mill.
The name first appeared in Jersey church records in 1810 with the baptism of the twin first children of Jacques and Marie Noel. There were six more children baptised over the next 15 years. The couple, who both came from Normandy, were not married until 1813, after their first four children had been baptised.
Other Moulin families in Jersey originated in Brittany.
- Moulinec, Brittany diminuitive
Great War service
- Peter M Moulin (1898-1918) son of Jean and Eliza, of St Mary, Private, Wiltshire Regiment, killed in action
- Eugene Frank Moulin (1885- ) (Gr) Son of Pierre and Jeanne, Leading Seaman RN. Baptised Pierre Marie, he changed his name before joining the Navy at the age of 14 in 1998. As his service record in the album below shows, he had a busy career in the Navy, serving on a large number of different vessels before leaving in 1923. He later worked at the Grand Hotel in Jersey as a porter.
