Origins of surname

There are suggestions that this name could be derived from 'red' and main, meaning a cairn of red stones, but it seems more likely that it was simply a name for a man with red hair or a ruddy complexion.

Early records

The name is found in Jersey as far back as 1666, and in the following decade there were baptisms of children of four different Redman couples, all in St Helier.

A steady flow of baptisms in the parish up to the end of the 17th century was followed by a mere seven in St Brelade and St Lawrence in the next hundred years, and a single, isolated Redman baptism in the middle of the 19th century.


  • Redman
  • Readman
  • Reedman, probably not a variant, derived from a person working with reeds
