Origin of Surname

Syvret, according to the Rev George Balleine's Derivation of Jersey Surnames is either a French form of Selfrid (Two Selfrids, Bishops of Chichester, are called Sifroi by the Norman Chroniclers) or of the Latin Severiacus.

It is also suggested that the surname is a development from the pre-7th century English personal name 'Sigeraed', meaning "Victory counsel". The name is one of the earliest on record and is found in the Domesday Book of 1086, although the recordings as Siret and Sired are baptismal. We have doubts that the name arrived in Jersey from England and support the view that it has French origins.

The coat of arms, granted in Jersey, has the blazon of a black field, charged with a silver lion rampant.
