Origins of surname

We have failed to find a specific reference to the origins of this surname, but it is probably from the same root as Prouteau, a name common on the Atlantic coast of France, and with the same derivation as Prevost, which comes from the name for a court official.

Early records

This name was first recorded in Jersey in Grouville and St Martin. The family came to Jersey, not from France, but from Sussex. One branch emigrated to Australia but another moved across the island to St Ouen.
