Origins of surname

This is a name which goes all the way back to Charlemagne, whose father was Pepin the Short. It started as the Germanic personal name Pipin, and became the family name Pepin, most notably in the Savoie region of eastern France, but also in Normandy.

Early records

The first Jersey Pepins probably came from Normandy, certainly as early as the late 16th century, and possibly earlier. They have never been particularly numerous in the island, but nearly 200 baptisms and births are on record, up to the 20th century. The name now appears to have died out in the island, however.

Online information is sketchy and it was not until October 2015 that we received an outline tree, which we were able to expand using church records, particularly for Grouville, where the majority of the family has been concentrated. Since then two further trees have been added.

The family line can be traced in Jersey from 1587 almost to the present day, but there is at least one separate family which arrived from the Saint Malo area in about 1800, and gave the island a Jurat, Stuart Philip Pepin, in the 1960s.
