The history of the Jue family name begins after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Somerset. The family was originally from the area of Cheux, near Carne, Normandy, and it from a reference to this location that the name derives.

Early Origins of the Jue family


The surname Jue was first found in Somerset, where the family held a family seat from very early times. The Jues were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Randal de Chiw, who was listed in the Assize Rolls of Somerset in 1201.

Jue Spelling Variations


Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Chew, Chewe, Chewning, Chue and others.

Migration of the Jue family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Jue or a variant listed above were:
