Billot family

Origin of name

Billot is a district near Lisieux. "Comme la noblesse de Billot" is a saying for proud poverty. However, the name may also indicate a wooded or forested area, or someone living there. A third explanation is that the name is a corruption of 'Robillot' or 'Robillotte', diminuitives of Robert.

Early records

The name is found in the Extente of 1331.

A birth of a Rogier Billot is recorded in Jersey in 1562.
