Origin of Surname

Historian the Rev George Balleine says that the du Heaume surname probably came from the Pays de Houime, south of Falaise in Normandy. The earliest references to the name are found in Jersey - the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 contains two du Heaumes, and the birth of a Thomas du Heaume is recorded in 1478. The "du" prefix has been dropped from usage in the Guernsey variant of the surname, where the name has traditionally been most common in the Forest parish.
