The Simon family at Herupe Farm

Origin of Surname

This surname is of pre-written historical origins. It ultimately derives from the Hebrew personal name Shimeon, meaning "one who harkens". In England the name generally takes the form of Simon, partly as a result of association with the pre-existing Greek byname from "simos", meaning snub-nosed. The first European recording of Simon as a personal name is probably that of Simonus, a monk, in the register of St Benets, Holme Abbey, Norfolk, England, in the year 1134.

Early records

The earliest Simon baptisms on record start in 1601, but it is known that Cardin Simon was born in St John, Jersey in 1585, the son of Jacques (1552), and brother of Collette (1587-1621).
