Origins of surname

We have no specific information on the origin of this surname, but it is possible that it is a variant of Boschet, a Brittany name synonymous with bosquet, meaning copse, grove or thicket.

Early records

A number of members of the Boschat family are believed to have come to Jersey from the village of St Donan in north Brittany towards the end of the 19th century. Although the name is present in the island today, we have not yet been able to link the present members of the family to any of the immigrants. The ancestry of brothers Honore, Joseph Marie and Jean Louis, born in the 1890s, can be traced back to the beginning of the 19th century.
