Origins of surname
This is a name found in the Côtes-d'Armor department of north Brittany, as well as in Vienne and Oise, but it seems to have completely foxed the experts on name derivation.
Bichon, apart from being the name of a French breed of dog, is a familiar term for 'my love', 'my darling', 'my dear'.
The name did not appear in Jersey until the 1871 census, where Julien Francois Ecobichan (shown as Jules in the census) and his wife Victoire Francoise Le Heran are shown with children aged two and nearly one.
The 1911 census shows 29 family members in eight different Ecobichan households in Jersey, but it has so far proved impossible to establish any links between these groups.
