Origins of surname
This is a name from the Cotes d'Armor department of north Brittany, derived from someone who barters (faire du troc), and not from the Breton troc'her, for someone who cuts hedges.
This was one of the many north Brittany families to settle in Jersey late in the 19th century. The first to arrive is believed to have been Yves, with his wife Victorine Marie Gorvel, who settled in St Martin in the early 1890s. They probably came from the commune of Plouezec in Cotes d'Armor.
