Origin of Surname
This family, which has been present in Jersey since at least the middle of the 18th century, probably originates in the Morbihan department of southern Brittany. It is an old Breton personal name which is derived from cad (= combat, battle) and uuoret (= assistance). So it may refer to a Knight's squire or someone in a similar role.
Family historian Henry Coutanche has written, in relation to the family tree below, that the Cadorets seem to have originated in St Peter, but in later generations moved to many other parishes.
- "Thomas Cadoret's father and his elder brother, Daniel, were millers, both of whom held the Moulin de Louis Paul alias Bertram, now known as Paul Mill, near Grands Vaux Reservoir, St Saviour. Daniel's wife died of cholera in 1849 and his son Daniel of typhoid in 1852. The younger brother Amice settled in St Mary."
Only 32 Cadoret baptisms are recorded in the period between their first appearance in the mid 18th century and 1842. The family is still present in Jersey today.
