Origins of surname

Therin is perhaps a variant of Therain, a name found in Normandy and Picardy, derived from the river Thérain, a tributary of the Oise, and several localities named after it. However, the members of the family who came to Jersey appear all to have originated in Ploeuc-sur-Lie in north Brittany.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey birth records in the 1870s, and within a short period births were registered in St Lawrence, Trinity, St Saviour, St Ouen and St John. This is a typical pattern suggesting that either a Therin rrived in the island as a farmworker and moved from one farm to another, or two or more Therins, perhaps brothers, arrived in the island at the same time, but worked on different farms.
