The origins of these names are something of a mystery. Although French sounding, it is probably more likely that the Caillet family in Jersey originated from England

Origins of surname

This surname has its origins in the French word caille, meaning 'quail'. It could also come from caillé = 'curds', signifying a cheese seller. Cailletau has similar derivation and we have combined the two families into one page, although those recorded in Jersey were probably from distinct families.

Early records

The first Caillet baptism in Jersey were those of the children of Philippe and Anne Le Couteur in St John in 1717 onwards. The couple married in the parish the year before.

Cailleteau appeared in 1700 with the baptism of the first child of Pierre and Louise Lis (Lys) in St Helier. Despite their surname being French, the couple married in Hampshire that year.
