Origins of surname

A family name which was recorded as a personal name in the Domesday Book of 1086, this probably came to England from Normandy at the time of the Conquest ten years before. It is derived either from espirit meaning an elf, or sprit meaning a small pole, and was used as a nickname for a tall, thin person.

Early records

Three children of Philippe Spratt and Marie Brasford were baptised in St Helier from 1753 to 1756, but there is no records of any descendants.

The family in the tree below came from the New Forest area of Hampshire, and earlier from Wiltshire.
