Origins of surname
We have been able to find nothing to indicate the derivation of this name, nor of Trampleasure, of which name the family which settled in Jersey appear to have adopted a shortened form.
The first member of the Tramp family recorded in Jersey is William Thomas, born in Falmouth in 1794. There is no record of a birth for that name, but family descendant Matt Ahier, who has sent us information on the Tramp family, believes that he may have been the William Trampleasure baptised in Falmouth in 1794.
There is a St Helier marriage record in 1822 of William Trambisure to Eleanor Piercy (at least, that it is how it has been transcribed). There are baptism records for eight children of William and Eleanor (no maiden name given) in St Helier from 1823 to 1841. (See family tree below)
