Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I5873)

(male)
Father: Nicod DUTOIT (b. BEF 1470, d. BEF 1511)
Mother: Jeanne _____ (dates unknown)

This would seem to be the Claude Dutoit the elder, son of the late Nicod Dutoit, who reaches an agreement with Claude son of the late Pierre Dutoit 05 oct 1511 (Michel Frossard, notary at Moudon), regarding payment of costs for the marriage of Pierre's niece Perissone Dutoit, daughter of the late Jacob Dutoit. If so, we suppose that Nicod's father Vuillerme was perhaps another brother of Jacob. The dispute about the cost of the wedding was not definitively settled at that time, however, as we find documents concerning it as late as 1538!

If he is indeed Claude the elder, he was also the one who represented the Dutoit family along with Pierre son of the late Nicod Dutoit in a complaint against Jacob d'Estavayer, prothonotary of the church of St. Etienne in Moudon regarding ownership of the "disme" of Chavannes, a feudal tax still claimed by some of the Dutoit family two centuries later. As both Claude and Pierre were children of Nicod, it is possible that it was only the descendants of Nicod, or perhaps of his father Vuilleme, who were entitled to the proceeds of this "disme". Neither the origin nor the specific terms of the "disme" have been discovered. By the end of the 17th Century at part of the "disme" was also owned by the Demont family of Chavannes, but the individual shares had become so diluted by the increase of the descendants that they were referred to as "particules".

Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I2129)

(male)
Father: Jacob DUTOIT (b. BEF 1421, d. BEF 1504)

Family 1 : Anteine _____ (d. AFT 1524)
  1.  Nicolletus DUTOIT (d. BEF 1524?)
  2. +Françoise DUTOIT (b. BEF 1485)

Documents of Jean Jaquier (or Jaqueri), notary at Moudon, 04 may 1559, mention a number of transactions between members of the Dutoit clan. Those that refer to the late Claude Dutoit are possibly confusing, but seem to indicate that he had a son Maurice who had died recently, a living son Claude, and a living son Jaques. If the references to Jaques son of the late Claude all refer to the same man, the one that gives the late Claude's father's name as Pierre would thus establish his parentage.

Claude's testament was recorded by Rodolphe Demont, notary at Moudon, 24 mar 1524. It names his wife Antonia, sons Maurice and Claude, and daughters as follows:

That he had two daughters Françoise (Francesia or Francesca, in Latin) is confirmed through several sources. This situation alerts us to the possibility that Claude had two wives, though no other indications have surfaced so far.

He is identified as the son of the late Jacobus Detecto, parish of St. Maurice of Mollens (modern Morlens). He leaves bequests to that parish as well as the religious community of St. Claire in Vevey. He asks to be buried in the tomb of his predecessors at the church of St. Maurice of Morlens.

The same Claude is probably not the Claude Dutoit of Chavannes who appears in the marriage contract of Louis de Costel alias Bellaz to Guillemette daughter of Claude Girard of Blessens. Claude Dutoit is listed as the maternal uncle of Guillemette. However, we have not figured out whether the relationship is through Claude or his wife (not mentioned in that document, however -- 10 apr 1524, Rodolphe Demont, notary).

In 1522, Claude appears with his son Maurice to record a settlement with Antoine Lombard of Morlens on behalf of his daughter Isabelle, "ad opus eiusdem Mauricii, videlicet de per super Defloracionem suis corporis ditte Ysabella sibi per dictum Mauricium facta..." A few months later, in January 1522/23, Maurice married Anteine, daughter of Jean Trolliet of Seigneux. (Documents of Michel Frossard, notary at Moudon).

Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I20978)

(male)
Father: Antoine DUTOIT (d. bef 1503)
Mother: Uldriette (Endriette) CHUY (d. bef 1501)

Family 1 :
  1.  Jean DUTOIT (dates unknown)
  2.  Jeannette DUTOIT (dates unknown)

Documents recorded by Claude de Place, notary at Lutry (ACV DI 48/7 and 48/11, date 13 may 1576 and 21 feb 1578) relate to a settlement between François DuTey and his nephew Claude DuTey regarding property at Cully of which Claude DuTey son of Antoine Dutey of Palézieux owned a half interest ("reconnaissance" of 15 may 1501, copy signed by Egrège George Ansel). The document of 1578 further reports that on 28 aug 1545, recorded by notary Henri Perriard, a "partage" was executed among the heirs of the same Claude DuTey. The heirs were Perrod du Tey of Vuarmarens, parish of Morlens, in his own name as well as in the capacity as guardian and administrators for Jean, Claude, and Jeannette, the sons and daughter of the late Claude du Tey his brother, for two thirds of the late Claude's estate, and Jean du Tey, brother of Perrod and the late Claude for the other third. The estate included property that had come to them by inheritance from "Uldriette", the mother of the three brothers, and the "partage" specified that some property went to the surviving brothers Jean and Perrod only, and not to the heirs of the late Claude. By 1576, François, heir of Perrod, held this property, and his "nephew" Claude duTey claimed that he should inherit part of it. The question was settled in favor of François when he produced the earlier documents mentioned above. Exactly how the younger Claude is related to François is not immediately clear, but the rest of this family can be reconstructed with reasonable certainty. The mention of Vuarmarens in the parish of Morlens assures us that we are in fact dealing with the Dutoit clan, but how this branch relates to the Dutoit family noted at Palézieu circa 1560 is still murky. The documents give us hope that the problem can be resolved through the "terriers" of Cully.

Many appearances in early notarial records at Moudon, as the son of the late Claude and brother of the late Maurice Dutoit. A marriage contract recorded by Humbert Demierre 05 jan 1567 has his daughter Jeanne marrying François Gauly (?) the elder, which helps to establish his dates. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that this is the same Claude DuToict whose son Balthazard appears in 1576 sharing a 1/2 interest with Jaques son of the late Mauris Dutoit (cited by Jaques Richard, notary, 30 may 1599). Other documents (1599, 1602) recorded by Jaques Richard, notary at Moudon, identify Balthazard as the brother-in-law of François Gauley, and refer to a partage recorded by another notary in 1576, between Balthazard for himself and the other children of (the late) Claude Dutoit (1/2 interest), and Jaques Dutoit for himself and the other children of (the late) Maurice Dutoit (the other 1/2 interest). However, we have not yet figured out who Claude married, or which baptisms pertain to his children.

Somewhere among the many Claude Dutoit's, mentions of Claude son of the late Pierre in documents that also mention Maurice son of Claude are evidently referring to another man. One possibility is that the other Claude was the son of Pierre son of Nicod brother of Guy.

Among the fragmentary notarial records of Vevey, there is a section of a register belonging to Clement Butty (DS 106/113) that contains a reference on 21 apr 1593 to Thomas and Jaques Dutoit of Chavannes-sur-Moudon, tuteurs of Jeanne de Boloz. We recognize her as the Jeanne du Bouloz who married André Dutoit, son of Claude Dutoit "le jeune", in 1594. It is not entirely clear if Claude "le jeune" was still living at that date, but as André was baptised in 1569, it is clear that "Claude son of Claude" is not the same man as "Claude le jeune", whose children would have been born as early as the 1540's. And he can hardly have been "le jeune" if he was born around 1515! (It seems quite likely that Thomas and Jaques arranged the marriage with one of their close relatives in order to consolidate her estate with that of their own family, and that Claude Dutoit "le jeune", father of André Dutoit, is most likely a sibling or cousin of Thomas and Jaques.)

We see in another record of Henri Garrod, notary at Corsier, 15 dec 1574, Pierre son of the late Humbert Perrod of Chardonne in the parish of Corsier selling to Claude son of the late Claude DuThey of Chavannes sus Mouldon, vineyards at Chardonne. Thus, Claude may be one of the first of his family to branch out to the area around Vevey.

Claude son of the late Claude DuTey of Chavannes also acquired citizenship at Chesalles-sur-Moudon in 1560, though we have no evidence that he or any of his children actually lived there (document cited in the inventory of the communal archives of Chesalles-sur-Moudon, and a copy at the ACV examined by Anne Bohy).

The terriers of Moudon appear to give additional information about this Claude. By 10 jun 1593 (ACV Fn 131 fol. 3v), Claude du Tey de Vuarmarens had died, and his son Jehan du Tey made a "reconnaissance" jointly with his "beau-frère" Antoine Frossard, who had married Anne, daughter of Gervais Gervais, mercier and resident of Moudon. The text reveals that the mother of Anne Gervais was Claudaz, daughter of François Demont. Claudaz was also the mother of Jehan du Tey, making Anne the step-sister of Jehan. Anne and Jehan had inherited the property in question from their mother. The next reconnaissance (fol. 4v) concerns Egrege "Baptizard" (=Balthazard) du Tey filz de feuz Claude du Tey, but for property that he purchased from Pierre Demont. The simplest explanation for this is that Balthazard and Jehan were both sons of the same Claude du Tey, but they had different mothers. Under this hypothesis, since Claudaz Demont survived Claude du Tey, she must have been his second (or even third) wife, but whether Claude was her first or second husband is yet clear. We should be able to resolve this issue of chronology from the terriers, which contain several other mentions of Gervais Gervais. Therefore, we at first interpreted this Jean Dutoit as the son of the present Claude by his second wife Claudaz Demont.

However, the records of the notary Jaques Jaquery (Jaqueri, Jaquier) of Moudon (ACV DL 53/1 fol. 30v) suggested that we had conflated two families here. On 15 mar 1559, Claude Demont (the name of his late father is left blank) sells to Claude Duthey son of the late François Duthey of Vuarmarens, the 1/4 part of land belonging to him at Moudon dessous Sainte Catherine, which was owned jointly as follows: 1/2 to François Demont and the heirs of Pierre Demont, 1/4 to the seller, Claude Demont, and the remaining 1/4 to Bernard Demont. The heirs of Pierre Demont are evidently those listed as such on fols. 47-48 of the same register: Pierre, Benoyte, Abel, Jean, and the late Catherine who was the wife of Jean Burgade, minister at Granges. As a result of these discoveries, we are forced to separate the two families.

Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I5495)

(male)
Father: Pierre DUTOIT (b. ABT 1490, d. bef 1550)

Family 1 : Anteine VEYRE (d. bef 1556)
  1.  Rosa DUTOIT (b. ABT 1540)
  2.  Jean DUTOIT (d. aft 1593)
  3. +Jaques DUTOIT (d. bef 1592)

There are numerous mentions of the Claude Dutoit, son of Pierre, who married Anteine Veyre. Could he be the same Claude Dutoit who was the "brother" of Nicod, Pierre, Jean, François, and Guillaume Dutoit, five brothers, who in 1568 divided property that they held jointly? The problem is compounded by a significant discrepancy in the records concerning these five brothers. The partage of 1568 says they are sons of Nicod, and at least some records from other notaries concur, but the church records and one marriage contract say they are sons of Pierre! The fact that the five brothers owned significant property jointly, to the exclusion of their "brother" Claude, could suggest that Claude was the son of a different wife of their father. Unfortunately, not even one wife of this Pierre (or Nicod?) seems to be named in the records of the notaries. Another interpretation is that Claude had simply died by 1568: one mention on fol. 72v says that adjacent property is held by the children of this Claude, implying, for the payment of the feudal taxes, that Claude had already died. For the moment, that seems the best explanation.

Date of contract, originally stated as 1538 but assumed to be Old Style, Rodolphe Demont, notary at Moudon.

Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I5510)

Mother: Françoise TELLEY (dates unknown)

Family 1 : Anteine REMOND (d. aft 1572)
  1.  Jaques DUTOIT (bp. 4 MAR 1568)

The alias Telley or Tellay that appears in a few records concerning Claude Dutoit is taken to mean that he is the son of the Antoine Dutoit who married Françoise Telley. In the 16th Century, those aliases we have been able to fathom often derive from the maternal surname.

Father: Jean DUTOIT (b. BEF 1503, d. ABT 1561)
Mother: Perronette VEYRE (dates unknown)

Family 1 :
  1.  Jean DUTOIT (dates unknown)

Still alive as late as 1555. A document of Claude Blanc, notary at Oron, notes Claude has died by 17 nov 1556 and has left children. So far, we have not been able to assign any of the various children of "the late Claude Dutoit" to this man, because there seem to have been more than one "late" Claude at that point.

However, one of the children might be the Jehan son of the late Claude Duthey who made a "reconnaissance" 22 mar 1592 for his cousin Anthoine son of Loys Duthey, bourgeois de Vevey (ACV Fn 347 fol. 76). This Jehan son of the late Claude made another reconnaissance in his own name 14 oct 1593 (fol. 91).

Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I25941)

(male)
Father: François DUTOIT (d. bef 1559)

Family 1 : Claudaz DEMONT (dates unknown)
  1. +Jean DUTOIT (b. BEF 1557)

By 10 jun 1593 (ACV Fn 131 fol. 3v), Claude du Tey de Vuarmarens had died, and his son Jehan du Tey made a "reconnaissance" jointly with his "beau-frère" Antoine Frossard, who had married Anne, daughter of Gervais Gervais, mercier and resident of Moudon. The text reveals that the mother of Anne Gervais was Claudaz, daughter of François Demont. Claudaz was also the mother of Jehan du Tey, making Anne the step-sister of Jehan. Anne and Jehan had inherited the property in question from their mother. The next reconnaissance (fol. 4v) concerns Egrege "Baptizard" (=Balthazard) du Tey filz de feuz Claude du Tey, but for property that he purchased from Pierre Demont. The simplest explanation for this is that Balthazard and Jehan were both sons of the same Claude du Tey, but they had different mothers. Under this hypothesis, since Claudaz Demont survived Claude du Tey, she must have been his second (or even third) wife, but whether Claude was her first or second husband is not yet clear. We should be able to resolve this issue of chronology from the terriers, which contain several other mentions of Gervais Gervais. Therefore, we interpreted this Jean Dutoit as the son of Claude by his second wife Claudaz Demont.

However, the records of the notary Jaques Jaquery (Jaqueri, Jaquier) of Moudon (ACV DL 53/1 fol. 30v) suggest that we had conflated two families here. On 15 mar 1559, Claude Demont (the name of his late father is left blank) sells to Claude Duthey son of the late François Duthey of Vuarmarens, the 1/4 part of land belonging to him at Moudon dessous Sainte Catherine, which was owned jointly as follows: 1/2 to François Demont and the heirs of Pierre Demont, 1/4 to the seller, Claude Demont, and the remaining 1/4 to Bernard Demont. The heirs of Pierre Demont are evidently those listed as such on fols. 47-48 of the same register: Pierre, Benoyte, Abel, Jean, and the late Catherine who was the wife of Jean Burgade, minister at Granges. As a result of these discoveries, we are forced to separate the two families. It is not clear whether this Claude Dutoit ever held property at Chavannes.

Family 1 :
  1. +André DUTOIT (bp. 18 MAY 1569, d. abt 1629)

Since he is called "le jeune" at the time of his son André's baptism in 1569, it is tempting to think that he was probably the Claude who had most recently been married. That would be Claude son of Anthoine, and his wife would be Antheine daughter of Claude Remond of Lovatens. After André, there are no more baptisms of a child of any Claude Dutoit at Moudon until 1625. Claude son of Anthoine was alias Telley, after his mother's surname, and died about 1572, baptising one son Jaques 05 mar 1568, of whom nothing further.

  1.  Claudine DUTOIT (bp. 17 NOV 1625)

Appelation "ès Jaques" appears in marriage record in 1624, so we assume he belongs here, or perhaps he is another son of Antoine son of Jaques. No further record after presumed first child. The baptism in 1595 is very likely his, if it was recorded at all, and the record identifies the father as Jaques brother of "Jannod" Dutoit (so far, not identified).

Claude DUTOIT       (ID #I2084)

(male)
Family 1 :
  1. +Elie DUTOIT (d. BEF 1632)
  2. +Pierre DUTOIT (d. 1629)
  3. +Jean DUTOIT (d. bef 1649)

So far, the only available information is "the late" father of Elie, Pierre, and Jean. The baptisms of the sons are not found at Moudon, Payerne, or Granges (and the Lucens church records before 1640 are lost). If he is truly the father of Jean Dutoit dit "au Clerc", he might also be the father of the Pernon "Clerq" who married Abraham Dutoit dit Billet.

Apparently a resident of Lausanne prior to his death, but there seems to be no further mention of him in the Church records there, possibly due to a gap in baptisms 1595-1615.

Subject of an interesting passage in the minutes of the consistory of Vevey:

11 jul 1684: "Claude Duthoit appelé pour avoir fumé tabac, ce qu'il auroit advoué, mais avec quelque excuse, disant avoir une incommodité qui l'oblige à fumer quelquefois. Cette excuse nonobstant, il a été condamné au bamp à forme de la Loy. Si pour tant il peut obtenir de la grâce de la N. Seigneurie Balivale pour la moitié qui revient à LL. EE., Il en pourra prévalloir. Quant à la part de la Chambre et de l'accusateur Il demeure acquitté pour la moitié, si moins subira à forme de la Loy. A quoi a été satisfait par la prison." (Jules Chavannes, "Commerce et industrie à Vevey au XVIIme et au XVIIIme siècle", Revue historiqe vaudoise, 51:172-184, 1943, published posthumously.)

Claude (von Dach) DUTOIT       (ID #I11407)

Family 2 : Elizabeth MEISTER (b. ABT 1560)

There are several references, some in his own, awkward hand, that indicate his origin in "Milden", the German name for the town of Moudon. However, his parentage has not been established, and no other relatives are mentioned in the records that involve him. His name is variously given as Glaudo, Claudio, etc., and the surname as "à Tecto", Detecto, Dutoit, von Tach, or von Dach. His descendants opted for von Dach, but often reverted to Dutoit when they strayed into French-speaking areas. A complete descendancy has not been attempted.

We are indebted to a descendant, Michael Kuhn, for additional details. Claude von Dach was appointed pastor first, as far as we know, at Neuenegg about April, 1578 until at least March, 1591, then from 1591 to 1614 at Lyss, and later at Saanen, Lauenen, and Kallnach. He may have been selected for service in these areas, near the French-German linguistic border, because of his knowledge of French. (Certainly his knowledge of German was imperfect. His spelling is very bad, and his German script appears very awkward.)

He married first Sara, who apparently died about 1597. Her surname has not been found. It is the second wife, Elizabeth Meister, who is mentioned in the surviving registers at Lyss.

The registers for his last three posts have not been examined. It is possible that some additional clues might be found if his age were noted on the occasion of his death, presumably at Kallnach.

There are a number of records concerning men from Moudon that have raised our curiosity. For example, in the lists of students enrolled at the University of Basel, we found a "Claudius Decimator Meldunensis" in 1559/60. The Latin name Decimator is equivalent to the German form Zehnder, well known at Bern along with the spellings Zehender and Zeender, but we have no other evidence of a Claude Zehender, let alone one at Moudon. Citations such as this seem strange, but so far we have not found one that can plausibly be transformed into Dutoit.

[14387]

His marriage is not found at Neuenegg, where he was minister from about April 1578. Either he was married in a neighboring parish, or possibly at Bern or wherever he was educated.

Claudine DUTOIT       (ID #I21270)

(female)
Father: Abraham DUTOIT (d. BEF 1689)
Mother: Pernon VEYRE (bp. 28 OCT 1624, d. 1694)

Her existence is noted in the register of the cour de justice of Chavannes (ACV B i l 264), when Claudine, daughter of the late Abraham Dutoit, presents the testament of her late mother Pernette Veyre, dated 15 apr 1694, for probate. That entry also mentions Claudine's brother Isaac, who wished to protest the terms of the testament. The text of the testament has not yet been discovered, and no further proceedings involving these parties are noted in this register. There is a baptism for a Claudine daughter of Abraham Dutoit of Chavannes dated 10 jun 1666, but if that record belongs to the present Claudine, it raises the possilibity that we have missed several more children from this family.
