Origin of Surname

This is a surname of French or possibly German-French origins. There appear to be two possible sources. The first according to the Dictionnaire Etymologique de France is as a dialectal Normandy version of the personal name 'Gautier', itself a development of the old German 'Walter'.

The second possibility is as a nickname from the Middle French vautor meaning a bird of prey.

Early records

It is a very old name in Jersey, appearing in the Short Inquisition of 1274.

Edmond and Sire Guillaume appear in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550

The first baptism records were in St Martin and neighbouring Grouville at the end of the 16th century.
