Origins of surname

Although the name arrived in Jersey from England, it is of French origin. Richmond in Yorkshire was named after a Richemont in France after the Norman Conquest. The derivation is from riche for rich or splendid, and mont, for hill.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey in the middle of the 19th century with the arrival of James Isaac Richmond and Sarah Ann Balls, probably from Essex.
