Origin of Surname

This name is of French origin, and derives from the given name Pierre, from the Greek Petros, the masculine form of petra meaning 'rock'.

The addition of the diminutive suffixes "-et(t), -ot(t)" and "-it(t)" give rise to several variations, including Perrot. The surname was first recorded in the latter part of the 11th Century, William Peret most likely being a follower of William the Conqueror, who was granted lands in England. Other early recordings include Ralph Perot, a witness in the 1235 Fine Court Rolls of Essex; William Poret, recorded in the Subsidy Rolls of Yorkshire, dated 1301; and John Porrett, Perott or Parrett, listed in the Oxford University Register, dated 1520.

An interesting namebearer, recorded in the Dictionary of National Biography, was Robert Porrett (1783 - 1868), a chemist who discovered electric endosmosis in 1816.

Early records

The name first appears in the baptism register of St Brelade at the end of the 17th century, suggesting that Samuel, the father, was possibly a Huguenot refugee. The Perrots in the family tree below are another family, believed to be Huguenots arriving in Jersey via Ireland.
