Origin of Surname

The origin of Marquand is believed to be the French marchant (the merchant), probably derived from an early tradesman between Guernsey and Jersey and France. The ultimate root of the name lies in the Latin word mercis, meaning commerce or merchandise.

Early records

The family name appears in the Assize Roll of 1309 in Jersey, and the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550 includes Edmond, Janette, Raulin, Raulyn or Rauolyn, and Thomas.

The earliest occurence of the variant Marquand in Guernsey was in 1513, when the parish school of St Peter Port, Guernsey was founded by the gift of Thomas Le Marquand and his wife, Yonette Thelby.

Raoulin Le Marquand was Attorney-General in Jersey in the 16th Century.

It is not clear whether Le Marquand and Le Marchand/Le Marchant were different families in Jersey or just variations in spelling within a single family. We continue to list them separately.

Early Marquands in England

This surname was first recorded at the beginning of the 13th Century, and other examples include Roger Marchaunt and Herueus Merchant who were listed as witnesses in the Assize Court rolls of Yorkshire in the year 1219. In 1240 Ranulph le Marchand appeared in the Fine Court Rolls of Essex, and Reginald le Marchant was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Cambridge in 1247. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Roger Marchand. This was dated 1202, in the Pipe Rolls of Berkshire, during the reign of King John of England, 1199 - 1216.

The first three trees all have the same starting point, but there are differences of detail between them, and the third shows a new line into the 20th century. We are unable at this stage to venture an opinion as to which tree is more reliable when they conflict with each other.

Tips

The church record links above will open in a new tab in your browser and generate the most up-to-date list of each set of records from our database. These lists replace earlier Family page baptism lists, which were not regularly updated. They have the added advantage that they produce a chronological listing for the family name in all parishes, so you do not have to search through A-Z indexes, parish by parish.

We have included some important spelling variants on some family pages, but it may be worth searching for records for a different spelling variant. Think of searching for variants with or without a prefix, such as Le or De. To search for further variants, or for any other family name, just click on the appropriate link below for the first letter of the family name, and a new tab will open, giving you the option to choose baptism, marriage or burial records. You will then see a list of available names for that type of record and you can select any name from that list. That will display all records of the chosen type for that family name, and you can narrow the search by adding a given name, selecting a parish or setting start and end dates in the form you will see above. You can also change the family name, or search for a partial name if you are not certain of the spelling

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net.
