Origins of surname

This name comes from the old French 'buhot', meaning pipe or conduit. In Normandy it signified a pipe made from horn, metal or wood in which reapers kept their sharpening stones, so the name was probably applied to a reaper. However, there are also a number of communes and smaller inhabited areas in the Calvados department of Normandy with this name, perhaps referring back to an ancient system of pipes.

Early records

The Buhot family arrived in Jersey in the mid-19th century from the nearby Normandy coast and settled in Grouville and St Saviour. The name is recorded in the island as du Buhot as early as the 14th century.
