Origins of surname

We do not have any information about the derivation of this French surname.

Early records

The first Merhet to arrive in Jersey appears to have been Pierre, born in the Cotes d'Armor department of Brittany in 1850. He came to the island with his wife Rosalie, and their daughter Louise was born in St Martin in about 1874. It is probable that Pierre Louis Marie Merhet, born in the same parish a year earlier, was also their son, but we have been unable to confirm this.
