Catherine Gallienne of Jersey

Meaning of name

Gallic and Gallienne were old types of ships, galley and galleon; so the names were probably given to sailors.

Early mention

The surname Gallienne is one of the oldest in the island of Guernsey. There are records of Galliennes in the southern parishes of Torteval, St Pierre du Bois and Forest as early as the 12th Century.

The name is also well established in Jersey. The name Gallienne is recorded as early as the 1300s in the Assize Roll of 1309.
