Origin of Surname

The original Norman undoubtedly came from Normandy, and there could, of course, have been several who were given this name separately. Whether the first Norman in Jersey was given this name after his arrival, or while still in France, to distinguish him from nearby Bretons, will never be known.

Early records

The name appears in the Assize Roll of 1309 and Michel Norment is listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

Edmund Norman was born before 1514 in Jersey, the son of Jean. He married Chierotte Blampied. Although Edmund Norman and his family lived in the southern part of the parish of Trinity, his grandson Jean moved to the easternmost part of St Saviour in about 1640, to a house (still there today) called La Davisonnerie. The family remained there for two centuries. In the intervening generations, members of the Norman family married heiresses to the Payn, Anquetil and Messervy families.
