Origins of surname

This surname has its origins in pre-Conquest France, and was introduced to England by the followers of William, Duke of Normandy. It is said to originate in one or more communes called Vauville in Calvados or Manche, and ultimately to derive from the old German wald = 'rule' and French ville = settlement. The name arrived in Jersey from England in the mid-19th century

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism in St Helier in 1861 of Elizabeth Mary, the first of six children of Sydney Mansell Wavell and Eliza Goswell Cowley. The couple had been married earlier in the year in the same parish
