Etienne family page


This family arrived in Jersey from Cotes d'Armor in Brittany in the late 19th century. Although some Etiennes are believed to have arrived separately, this is the only family to become established. This is the 38th family in Jersey which we have identified as originating in the north Brittany commune of Ploeuc-sur-Lie

Origins of surname

The surname is derived from the personal name Etienne, which ultimately comes from the Latin Stephanus. Saint Etienne is revered as the principal martyr of Christianity after Christ

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the birth of Francois Marie Etienne in St Peter between 1879 and 1883. We have not been able to connect him to the family of Francois Marie Etienne and Josephine Francoise Blivet, who raised their family in St Peter from 1882
