Origin of Surname

A wide variety of explanations have been put forward for the derivation of the Jersey surname Pallot (see link to family history below). It is probably most likely that the name derives from the French surname Paillette, found in some numbers in Normandy today. There are also some 1,300 Pallots listed in the directory of telephone subscribers throughout France.

Paillette, found in Normandy as early as 1273, is derived from Medieval French paillettte (sequin), suggestion that it originally referred to a maker of gold and silver sequins; Paillette could also be the feminine form of paillet, old Fench for an ear of wheat, indicating a winnower.

Early records

The name appears in the Assize Roll of 1309 and Collas, Guillaume and Jehan appear in the Jersey Chantry Certificate of 1550.

Baptism records start in St Saviour in 1544
