Origin of surname

The old personal name Oswulf became Ozouf and eventually became a surname.

Early records

The name is of considerable antiquity in Jersey, appearing in the Short Inquisition of 1274

Sire Guillaume Osoulf appears in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

The name is reasonably common in Normandy today and can be traced there back to 1198.

Baptism records start in St Helier in 1597, but the following have been identified in earlier records:

  • Elizabeth Ozouf, born in Jersey about 1580 and married Vincent Hamon in 1608
  • Collette Ozouf, possibly a sister of Elizabeth, born in Jersey about 1585 and married Thomas de ste Croix in 1609

An Ozouf family was present in Jersey from the 16th century until the 18th, but then appears to have died out. Today's Ozoufs are descended from immigrants from France in the 19th century.
