Origins of surname

This name is derived from the biblical character Moses, which is also a family name present in Jersey.

Moise and Moyse were common personal names in the island before the arrival of the Moyse family. Both spellings appear in the registers as family names, often within the same family group, and we have standardised on Moyse.

Early records

Although they arrived in the island at more or less the same time - the 1820s - the Moyse and Moses families are quite distinct.


  • Moyse
  • Moise
  • Moses, a separate family
