Origin of Surname

Jeune is French for young.

Early records

A Jersey Post stamp in the 1985 Huguenot Heritage series depicts Lord St Helier, born Francis Jeune, suggesting that his family was of French Huguenot refugee origin, and this is supported by the entry for his father in George Balleine's Biographical Dictionary of Jersey, which says that the family arrived in Jersey during the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603). This was the first wave of Huguenot refugees which followed the Massacre of St Bartholomew in 1572.

However, the family name was known in Jersey in the late 13th century, long before the arrival of Huguenots. The name is also found in the Assize Roll of 1309. With the exception of Descendants of Jean Jeune, which shows the ancestry of Lord St Helier, the other trees below are believed to belong to the family which predates any possible Huguenot refugee link.

Collas and Johan Jeune and Jacques and Louys Le Jeune are listed in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

Baptisms start with Jean, son of George, in St Saviour in 1572.
