Origin of Surname

It is suggested that the original Vallois in France originated in Wales, 'V' and 'G' being interchangeable in surnames. However, it is far more likely that the name comes either from the region of this name in Northern France, which was once an independent duchy, or simply derives from someone who lived in a valley (val).

Vallois is the common form of the surname in Jersey, but Le Vallois is found in Guernsey. A number of French students from the De Vallois family in France were in Jersey in 1911. The spelling Valois is more common in France today.

Early records

This is not a family of any great longevity in Jersey, having first appeared in the 19th century with the baptisms of the children of Francois Vallois, from Coutances, and Esther Laurens, who may also have come from France.
