Origin of Surname

This is a French name meaning little toad. Clearly the original Botrel was not particularly well liked!

Early records

Pierre Botrel, born in Cotes du Nord, Brittany, in 1873, arrived in Jersey in the late 1880s as a farm worker and settled there. He died in 1953. See tree below.

However, the name spelt Boterel was known in Jersey as early as the 1309 Assize Roll and appears again in various forms, notably in 1461 and the 1528 Extente. There is a single early baptism record, Ester, daughter of Clement, in 1580 in St Saviour, and a marriage record of a French couple. Joseph Botterel (St Brieuc) and Marie Gestin (St Malo) in St Martin in 1767.
