Origin of Surname

The name originates from the Latin word ripa meaning a river bank, or possibly a plateau by a river or from places of the same name. As a surname it originally denoted someone who lived at such a place. The French for a river bank is rive.

Early records

The first Rive baptism is found in the St Peter register in 1652, and until the 19th century, the family lived largely in this parish and neighbouring St Ouen and St Brelade. There was also a small branch in St Helier.
