Origins of surname
The name is of French origin, found in the south-west and Savoie as Joguet, and in the centre as Jouguet. It is derived from a placename meaning a small escarpment, after juchoir, the perching place of a chicken.
The family seems to have arrived in Jersey around 1707, when the first of five children of Pierre and Henriette Pomeray was baptised in St Helier. However, this line appears to have died out within a generation and it was a century before another Joguet arrived in the island.
