Origins of surname

Although the Jersey family traces its descent to Ireland, this is a name of French origin, relating to the city of Troyes. It first appears in English records in 1273, although it probably moved from France to England at the time of the Conquest.

Early records

Patrick Troy (1825- ) and his wife Mary, nee O'Donnell, came to the island in 1852 and all Troys in the island today are descended from them.
