Origin of surname
The spelling Fautrart is found in the French department of Mayenne, and in Jersey. Fautrat is the spelling found in the Manche department of Normandy, although apparently it has died out there.
The derivation is uncertain, although it has been suggested that it comes from feutre, the French for felt, and indicated a worker in this material.
The name was known in Jersey in the late 16th and 17th centuries, but then appears to have died out.
- Fautreat, 1607
