Origin of Surname

Although the first Sinel appears to have come to Jersey from Normandy - see family tree and history below - having been born in Conde sur Vire and left France as a Huguenot refugee, the name does not appear to be known in Normandy today and its origins have not been traced so far.

The name Siné, of which this could be a diminuitive, is known in the south Brittany department of Morbihan, as someone coming from the commune of Séné
