Origin of Surname

This surname is literally translated from old French as 'petticoat chaser', indicating a womaniser.

Early records

The Cotillard family comes mainly from the towns of Ploeuc-sur-Lie and nearby Saint Carreuc in the Cotes d'Armor department in the north of Brittany. Two families became established in Jersey early in the second half of the 19th century, one from each town.

Pierre Marie Cotillard, born in Ploeuc in 1814, came to the island with his wife Catherine and son, also Pierre Marie, who married Jeanne Marie Barron and settled in St Lawrence, then St Mary. See Descendants of Francois Cotillard.

Francois Mathurin Cotillard, was born in St Carreuc in 1853. He appears to have moved to Jersey either shortly before or after his marriage to Jeanne. See Descendants of Arthur Cotillard.

Cotillards from Brittany also settled in Guernsey at about the same time.
