Origin of Surname

The De L'Erée's of St Saviours died out in the 19th century. They had inter-married in the 16th and 17th centuries with the Genemyies, whose name is perpetuated to this day in Les Jenemies, near Le Mont Saint, and with the Lohiers, who gave their name to Les Lohiers, also at St Saviours. These Lohiers were eventually reduced to one girl; she married a De Garis and had one daughter, Collenette de Garis, wife of Jurat John Blondel (circa 1623). The Blondels retained the estate of Les Lohiers until rather more than 200 years ago, when it passed by marriage to the De Garis family, in whose possession it remains to this day.[1]
