Origins of surname

The equivalent of the French Raoul, this is a name with Norse origins, from the personal name Radulf. Rad means advice and wolf the animal. Why someone would seek advice from a wolf and then be given that as a name is somewhat uncertain. Unless he gave advice about a wolf and was accused of 'crying wolf'.

Early records

This surname first appeared in St Helier records in the 1830s
