Origins of surname
This name is derived from vicar, which ultimately comes from the Latin vicarius, meaning someone who carried out pastoral duties on behalf of the absentee holder of a benefice. It indicated either somebody employed by a vicar, or perhaps his son.
The first Vickery baptisms in Jersey were those of the children of Thomas and Marie Coutanche - ten between 1823 and 1846. Thomas came from a Devon family, but was born in Chelsea. He arrived in Jersey in about 1820 and married Marie, the daughter of Noe and Marie Corbel, in about 1822, when Marie was only 15.
We have been unable to find a marriage record, but Marie's baptism was in St Helier on 1 April 1807 and the couple's first child, Thomas, was baptised on 28 May 1823.
