Origins of surname

The derivation of Quemard is uncertain, as with several other French surnames beginning quem-. It is almost certainly a Brittany name and may be derived from Kembre, meaning 'land of the Gauls'.

Early records

The first Quemard family to become established in Jersey was started by immigrant quarryman Joseph Marie Quemard and his wife Mary Ann in St Lawrence in the last decade of the 19th century. Although we have been unable to trace Joseph Marie's French origins with any degree of certainty, it is most likely that along with many other French immigrants at the time, he came from the small town of Ploeuc-sur-Lie in the Cotes d'Armor department of north Brittany.
