Origins of surname

We have been unable to find a derivation for Moignard, but it seems likely that, although the families are distinct in Jersey, it has the same origin as Le Moignan, which is a mutilated person, specifically without an arm.

Early records

The family appears to have used both 'Moignard' and 'Moignand' as its spelling, with 'Moignard' more prevalent in later years. It first appeared in St Helier in 1665, but this branch seems to have died out and the name next appears in St Lawrence in 1711.
