Origins of surname

This name is derived from a medieval personal name 'Renaud', itself coming from the Germanic Raginwald - 'Ragin-' = 'advice' and '-wald' = 'powerful'.

Early records

The first Renault baptisms appear in the St Saviour registers from 1542 and the family was firmly established in neighbouring Grouville from 1590 and through the 17th and into the 18th century. From the late 17th century it appears to have spread its wings into the northern parishes of St Mary, St Lawrence, St John and Trinity.

The Pierre Jean Renault family tree (below) were new arrivals from France in the 19th century.
