Origins of surname
Although there is no connection between the families, this surname has the same derivation as Bisson. That name comes from the French for bush, signifying a person living in an area covered in shrubs; Brochet comes from the old French broche, for bushy.
The name first appears in Jersey church records in 1798, with the marriage of Jacques Brochet, from France, to Jeanne Philippe at St Saviour's Parish Church.
