Origin of Surname
The surname Jamonneau is derived from the diminutive of the old French name Jame (modern French Jacques, English James). It is common in the Poitou region of France. The first reference to the surname in Guernsey was in the early 18th century when André Jamonneau and his wife, Huguenot refugees, arrived in Guernsey. The spelling was transformed into Jamouneau at around this time, and has stuck ever since.
