Jelbert : see Gilbert. John Gylbert of Gulval (Cornwall) in 1524 may be the same man as John Jelbert in the same parish in 1545 (Cornwall Subsidies). This variation in pronunciation of the initial consonant of the surname is mostly found in Cornwall but is French in origin. It reflects a dialectal distinction between Normans who came from northern Normandy where /g/ prevailed until the 13th century and Normans and Frenchmen from southern Normandy and central France where /g/ had long since been palatalized to /dʒ/ a sound often spelled J- in England. For the same variation compare Giffard and Jefford.
