Origins of surname

This name has nothing to do with the Spanish fortified wine, but originates in Scotland and Ireland. Searraigh was an ancient word which literally translates as 'a foal'. This may have been an endearment, or was possibly a nickname for a fast runner, as a secondary meaning is 'flying or flighty'.

Early records

The name first appeared in St Helier and St John around the middle of the 19th century. The two main families were that of Thomas and Ann Odoire in St Helier and John and Elizabeth Pinel in St John.
