You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Origins of surname

We have failed to find a derivation for this name, which is undoubtedly of French origin, but does not appear in any of our French sources. Other surname origins suggest that the 'ven-' could come from the French vendre, 'to sell' and that the name may, therefore, have indicated a market salesman.

Early records

Although the name does not appear in Jersey's official records until the early 17th century, baptism records show that it was present at least 30 or 40 years earlier.

The name has died out in Jersey and only three Veneman housholds are in the telephone directory for the whole of France.


  • Venement, 1668
  • Veneman, 1607
