Origin of Surname

The surname Guiton is said by the Rev George Balleine's article on the derivation of Jersey names to come from the old French for 'page-boy'. However, other sources suggest that while of ancient French origin, this may be an occupational name for a professional guide, a very important role when maps were either non-existent or not to be trusted. This derivation is from the Old French word "gui" meaning a professional guide.

Yet another French source suggests that the name is derived from the old French personal name 'Witto', possibly via 'Guy'.

Early records

Jean Guiton and Marie Simoneau came to Jersey from France and married in 1758.
