Origins of surname
Although none of our usual sources reveals a derivation of this name, nor its presence in France, it is the early form Mon Ami which must give the best clue, being a direct translation in modern French of 'my friend'.
The name has been present in Jersey since the early 16th century and the first church record was in 1588, when Katherine, daughter of Thomas was baptised in St Saviour.
