Origins of surname

The origin of this name is uncertain, but the pronunciation is the same as Pihen, and there are several communes of this name in northern France.

Early records

In 1829 the first of four children of Jean Pihen and Angelique Vivier was baptised in St Helier; there was then a gap to 1883 when the first of five children of Victor John Pihan and Josephine Jane Mauger, was baptised in the same parish. These are the only Church of England baptisms on record for this family. The fact that a family will (see below) included a bequest to St Thomas' Church suggest that there may be further family baptisms in Roman Catholic records
