Origins of surname

Ratel is a name found predominantly in Normandy and Picardy and was given to someone who used a rake rateau, particularly for collecting hay.

Early records

The first church record was the marriage of Pierre and Rachel Cassell in 1837, shown in the box. The name first appeared in the St Brelade birth register in the 1870s, and all births to the end of the 19th century were in that parish. These were the children of Peter Ratel and Jane Elizabeth Gibaut, but this family seems to have died out in the island and we have not been able to trace the ancestry of the Ratels present in Jersey today.
