Le Verdier family page

Although there are earlier records, the Pelluet family which settled in Jersey came from Normandy in the first half of the 19th century. Its ancestry can be traced back many generations in the commune of Frenes in the Orne department


Ernest Alfred Pelluet (1893-1984) was placed in the Jersey Home for Boys at the age of seven, and then left Jersey as a teenager with his mother and siblings to live in England

Origins of surname

This is a name found mainly in Lower Normandy, but also in the department of Allier. It is a diminuitive of the adjective pelu which, in old French, indicated a hairy man.

Early records

There is a record of the surname as far back as 1776, but it would be another 60 years before an immigrant from Normandy established a family in Jersey. Although two Pelluets from Fresne in the department of Orne married in Jersey in the mid-1800s (see trees below), and we have traced the ancestors of both back into the 17th century, they do not appear to be related.
