Origins of surname

We have not been able to find any specific reference to the origin of this name, but it is doubtless a variant of Pelletier, and derived from the French pelle for skin, indicating a furrier or trader in animal hides. The name is closely associated with the commune of Arquenay, in the Mayenne department of France.

Early records

The first member of the family to arrive in Jersey was Huguenot refugee Gabriel Pellier. He died in Trinity in 1704. His son Daniel married Marguerite Richardson in Trinity on 29 October 1715.
