Origins of surname

The variations of spelling below support the view that this was a name given by Anglo-Saxons to the inhabitants of the area to the west of what is now England, which they invaded in the 5th century

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Mary in St Brelade in 1653. Her parents names are not recorded, nor are those of Jeanne, baptised in the parish three years later. Jean, son of Jean Welch, was baptised in St Brelade a month after Mary, and Douceabell, son of Gilles in 1659. So there were at least two families in the parish in the mid-17th century, but then there were no more baptisms until 1763, and it was not until the 1820s that a family became established, in St Helier
