Origins of surname

This name originates with the old Gaelic morcant. The meaning is uncertain but 'sea chief' or 'sea defender' are generally accepted

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism in 1780 of Catherine, daughter of Jean Murphy and Betty McDowle. It was the early 19th century before a family became established and there were only sporadic baptisms in that century. The name is still present in Jersey today
