Origins of surname
From the Greek stephanos meaning crown or wreath, this name means simply son of Steven.
Jersey baptism records go back to the late 18th century. From 1779 to 1829 there are six baptisms in the island for the children of different couples. The fathers were mostly soldiers.
Few of the Stevens families seem to have become established in Jersey for much more than a generation, some leaving for Canada, others Australia.
