Origins of surname
Fixot is a name known in many areas of France, particularly the Dordogne department in the south-west, but we have been unable to find any reference to its origins.
Denis Fixot, who came to Jersey in the first half of the 18th century, is believed to have been born in the Dordogne department of south-west France. See tree below. In 1851 his great-grandson John, a surgeon, whose gravestone is shown below, was living in King Street with his wife and daughters. The Charles Fixott whose photograph is on the right was Denis Fixot's grandson and the surgeon's father. They would have been an affluent family to be able to afford portrait photographs within a decade or so of their first availability in Jersey.
