  2.  Jaquemaz DUTOIT (dates unknown)

Appears as an adult in records from the district of Oron as early as 1574. Until his death is noted about 1612 (records of an unknown notary identified as ACV DO 42/3, 01 apr 1612), he seems always to be referred to as "Jean Dutoit de Palézieux". By that time, his father was apparently already dead, but Jean had a brother Antoine "de Palézieux".

Jean DUTOIT       (ID #I6742)

(male)
Father: Jaques DUTOIT (d. AFT 1648)
Mother: Salomé OLEVEY (d. ABT 1625)

Baptism not yet identified, probably baptised at Moudon rather than Vevey, where all existing baptismal records have been assigned. Adult, apparently, by 1645, when he and his brother Pierre acknowledge a debt to Jaques Tacheron, minister at Syens (Faucherres, notary, ACV DL 40/7). He is identified as a couturier at that time, like his father.

Jean DUTOIT       (ID #I3853)

(male)
Father: Pierre DUTOIT (b. BEF 1570)
Mother: Salomé RUBATTEL (d. BEF 1629)

Family 1 : Paule DECONCHES (d. AFT 1704)
  1. +Gaspard DUTOIT (b. 1659, d. 1708)
  2. +Antoinette DUTOIT (b. BEF 1670)

Biographical details from La France Protestant (2d. Ed.) and Livre du Recteur de l'Académie de Genève show that he served as minister at Le Cheylard and Vallon, Ardèche, France, then in the Pays de Vaud at L'Isle 1673-1681 and Rolle 1682-1691, where he died. His final tenure in France (Le Cheylard, 1669-1670) was terminated because he was a foreigner, and he is identified as bourgeois of both Moudon and Vevey. He was enrolled at the Académie de Lausanne as early as 1636. See also Arnaud's Histoire des Protestants du Vivarais et du Velay (1888). The existence of a debt for which he and his wife were creditors dated 01 jan 1692 is signaled in a document of Philippe Favre, notary at Moudon 08 jul 1704, proving that he did not die in 1691 as indicated above, but likely soon after.

It seems most likely that he should have been the son of Pierre Dutoit and Salomé Rubattel baptised in 1618, but we first thought that Jean Dutoit was the one who married Annelle Demierre. It may be that we can eventually prove that the Jean Dutoit who married Annelle Demierre was not the son of Pierre. For the moment, we note that Salomé was herself the daughter of a minister, and she had at least two brothers who were notaries. Her son François Dutoit was a notary, and his son Pierre, also a notary, recognized the close (but unspecified) relationship to Jean Dutoit the minister. Pierre's daughter Jeanne Marie married Jean Mathieu, grandson of Jean Dutoit the minister. If our analysis is correct, the Jean Mathieu and Jeanne Marie were second cousins, a permissible degree of consanguinity under the strict rules of the Bernese authorities. One difficulty, however, is that the other person stated to be a relative of Gaspard, the relationship given in the same document of 27 jul 1719 recorded by Pierre Dutoit, was Jean Benoit Dutoit the elder (b. 1657), who appears to be a fourth cousin of Pierre (these two men were giving their consent for Gaspard's widow to sell his estate in France). If such remote relationships were recognized at that time in Vevey, the argument for the parentage of the minister Jean Dutoit rests mainly on the social class and professional relationships of his supposed parents. It is also possible that Pierre felt the need to assist Gaspard's widow, and, in order to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest, called in the first available Dutoit in Vevey to provide legitimacy to the required document. Pierre had already recorded Jean Benoit's testament in 1708, so the two men knew each other.

The circumstances under which he had to leave his ministry in France have been repeated in several published accounts, but the original document has not previously been identified. The records of the reformed synods in "Série TT" of the French National Archives are available on microfilm through the Family History Library. TT 232 (FHL microfilm #1344541) contains records of a synod held in December, 1670 at Annonay. Dutoit was not present, being "indisposed", but he and the minister Detournes were the subject of an order to leave France: (19 dec 1670) "Detournes et Dutoict — Mr. le commissaire a reprézenté a la compagnie qu'il lui a esté remise par M. de Bezons, Intentant, une lettre de cachet du 15 novembre dernier adressée a mondit seigneur de Bezons par lequelle il est ordonné qu'incontinent apres laditte lettre receue, il aye a empecher lesdits sieurs Detournes et Dutoict, ministres de la province, de contignuer le service de leur ministere dans les Esglises de Vivaretz dont ils sont ministres, attendu qu'ils sont estrangers..." A message containing this news was dispatched to Dutoit, and his reply was recorded by the synod 24 dec 1670. He stated that he was prepared to obey the order, even though he had a brevet of 11 jul 1667 permitting him to exercise his ministry in spite of the fact that he was a foreigner. The synod provided him with a letter of recommendation. Very soon after this synod, a royal order dissolved the consistory of Annonay and appointed a new one.

Jean DUTOIT       (ID #I3106)

(male)
Father: Jean DUTOIT (d. bef 1649)
Mother: Claudine SAUVAGEAT (d. BEF 1634)

Family 1 : Anteine CORTESY (dates unknown)
  1.  Jeanne DUTOIT (bp. 24 FEB 1641)
  2.  Jean DUTOIT (bp. 27 SEP 1643)
  3.  Gaspard DUTOIT (bp. MAY 1645)

The baptism of 15 apr 1620 is probably his, since there does not seem to have been another Jean Dutoit of Chavannes baptising children at this time. The identification of his father Jean Dutoit as the couturier is based on the baptism of his previous child, Jaquemaz, where he is listed as couturier of Chavannes.

Jean DUTOIT       (ID #I2416)

(male)
Father: Jean DUTOIT (bp. 21 OCT 1584, d. BEF 1660)
Mother: Anne ("Annelle") DECREVEL (d. aft 1668)

Family 1 : Marie FUDRI (d. BEF 1694)

This Jean has been hard to tie to the rest of the clan. He is the second husband of Marie Fudri, and noted as conseiller about 1675-1677, but shortly after his marriage to Marie he is called "hoste", or innkeeper (Benoit Giraudet, notary at Moudon, 19 aug 1659). He had a brother Jaques, deceased by 1665 leaving children (nephews of Jean). His marriage contract also notes that he had a cousin Daniel François Veyre. He apparently had a brother Philippe, with whom Jean Dutoit the conseiller appears in 1675 settling their joint inheritance from their father, who is not named. A mention of Jean Dutoit conseiller in 1677 is definitely him, because he is acting for his step-daughter Anne, recently married to Denis Besançon (Denis Burnand, notary at Moudon, 21 mar 1677).

The parentage of Jean the hoste and conseiller thus depends on the identity of his relatives. Documents recorded by Abraham Faucherres, notary at Moudon, 07 oct 1675, concern Jean Dutoit and his brother Philippe Dutoit regarding their inheritance from their father. One of these documents calls Jean Dutoit conseiller. The same notary recorded a document on 09 mar 1675, in which "Spectable et Sçavant Abraham Dutoit" settles his inheritance with his brother Philippe Dutoit. It seems reasonable to assume that this document concerns the same Philippe, and therefore that Abraham is also a brother of Jean the conseiller.

However, another document, recorded 16 sep 1660 by Pierre Gavin, notary at Moudon, involves and agreement between "Spectable Abraham Dutoit", son of the late Jean Dutoit and student in philosophy at Lausanne, and his brother Philippe. There is also a document of 01 jun 1661 involving Jaques Dutoit, maréschal, and his brother Philippe, presumably the same Philippe brother of "Spectable" Abraham. It was certainly possible in those days to be a student of philosophy and to passed the examination to enter higher studies by age 14, but if he were really so young in 1660, he should have been represented by a guardian ("tuteur"). Thus, the Abraham named in this record should have been born no later than about 1640, and likewise for his brother. Whoever they are, they cannot be sons of Jean Dutoit the conseiller, as he was still alive as late as 1677. And the Philippe from 1660 cannot be the Philippe who was the son of Pierre Dutoit and Jeanne de Palézieux, because the latter Philippe was not born until 1659. But who was the "Spectable" Abraham, and can we be sure he is not the same man cited in 1675? And when was Abraham André Dutoit, the minister who served at Cotterd, Syens, and elsewhere, ordained?

Since Abraham André Dutoit, the minister at Cotterd, would have been only 13 in 1675, it does not seem possible that he would have been called "Spectable et Sçavant" at that time, nor could he have entered into an agreement by himself. So, the transaction of 09 mar 1675 probably involves Abraham Dutoit the schoolmaster and his brother Philippe, rather than children of Pierre Dutoit and Jeanne de Palézieux, even though Pierre certainly died about that time. This leaves only the documents dated 07 oct 1675 as establishing that Jean Dutoit the conseiller had a brother Philippe.

The minister Abraham André Dutoit's parentage is established by his relation to his brother Philippe, son of Pierre Dutoit and Jeanne de Palézieux, and we can identify a very likely baptism attended by André Falconnet, evidently a relative of Jeanne de Palézieux (dit Falconnet -- these two surnames are always interchangeable, and Jeanne herself is sometimes called Falconnet in the church records at Moudon). That leaves the matter of Jean the conseiller still unresolved; it is necessary to know which Philippe, if any, was his brother. It is possible that the answer may yet be found by reviewing the various properties bought and sold by these parties beginning in 1660.

Now, Jean the hoste conseiller seems to be the only Jean son of a Jean Dutoit (except for one at Chesalles) active in the mid-17th Century. Therefore, he may have been the subject of the baptism of 15 apr 1620, which specifies Jean son of Jean Dutoit of Chavannes, with one of the sponsors Jeanne daughter of Daniel Dutoit. As late as 1617, Jean Dutoit the couturier, son of Claude, seems to have been living in Chavannes, but there may be other possibilities. The Daniel Dutoit in question is also uncertain, because there were two early Daniels of the same generation, and no children known for one of them, Daniel son of François, who married Susanne Veyre.

A number of documents show that he was quite active after his marriage to Marie Fudri, perhaps because of the additional capital available to him as a result of the marriage.

Benoit Giraudet, notary at Moudon, 19 aug 1659: Jean Dutoit, hoste, step-father of the children of the late Gabriel Dutoit, is owed by the heirs of the late Jean Jaques Cler, bourgeois de Moudon, for a debt due to the late Gabriel. (Does this concern an actual Cler/Clerc family, or is this a reference to Dutoit dit "au Clerc"?)

Pierre Gavin, notary at Moudon, 17 sep 1660: David Dutoit, couturier of Moudon, confesses he has received of Jean Dutoit, hoste of the said place, in the name of the heirs of the late Gabriel Dutoit, the sum of 188 florins from an obligation due to the late Gabriel from 1651, recorded by Eg. Giraudet.

Pierre Gavin, notary at Moudon, 11 feb 1661: Jean Dutoit, hoste, acting in the name of the children of the late Gabriel Dutoit, rents a property for 9 years to Antoine Dutoit of Chavannes.

Benoit Giraudet, notary at Moudon, 15 mar 1661 (ACV DL 50/11): "Y ayant riere Chavannes deux morcels de terre lieudit En Riondbois qui estoyent indivis entre honnorable Pierre Duc dudit lieu, et les hoirs de feu honnorable Gabriel Dutoit son oncle maternel, pour lesquels hoirs honnorable Jean Dutoit leur beaupere et charge ayant judicialement establi est agissant..."

Benoit Giraudet, notary at Moudon, 25 jul 1665: Jean Dutoit, hoste, is obliged to Mr. Philippe Trolliet in his own name for 166 florins and in the name of his nephews, children of his brother the late Jaques Dutoit, for 117 florins, in cancellation of debts of 13 jun 1661 and 03 jun 1657. [If the original debts can be located, we might learn the identity of Jean's brother Jaques. The names of the children of Jaques are not given in the document of 1665.]

Benoit Giraudet, notary at Moudon, 01 jul 1669: Marriage contract between Abraham son of Spectable Guillaume DeMont, schoolmaster and bourgeois of Moudon, and Marie, daughter of the late Gabriel Dutoit, in his lifetime hoste and bourgeois de Moudon, represented by her step-father the conseiller Jean Dutoit and her mother Marie Fudri, and Marie's brother Pierre Dutoit.

There are some additional documents mentioning Jean Dutoit, conseiller, but the context has so far not permitted us to conclude with absolute certainty that this is the same man. However, nothing has surfaced so far to suggest a contrary hypothesis.

He is variously identified as a couturier or by the alias "au Clerc" (applied most often to his son Daniel). It has been extremely difficult to tie the members of this family together. Some of the connections are the result of inferences based on statements about relationships that may not be as exact as they seem to be. Terms such as uncle, cousin, or brother-in-law are known to have been used in an informal sense in this period. In the absence of clearer evidence, the reconstruction of the family as proposed here seems at least to be consistent with the documentation at hand.

The name of one wife has been conclusively identified, but he still might be the Jean son of Claude Dutoit who married Guillauma Degriez 01 dec 1594 at Moudon and had daughter Françoise baptised 18 feb 1596. There is considerable uncertainty about the "au Clerc" lines, but it now appears that Jean dit "au Clerc" had an unrecorded son Jean who married Anteine Cortesy by 1641, and who possibly had a previous wife Pernon. There are suggestions that the elder Jean was related to Jaques son of the late Guillaume Dutoit, tisserant, noted about 1610.

A particularly interesting possibility is raised by the problem of the two wives of Isaac Margueron, Jaquemaz and Esther Dutoit. If the available documents are taken at face value, they seem to indicate that Jaquemaz and Esther were sisters. The likely baptismal record for Jaquemaz is the one from 1617, for the daughter of Jean Dutoit the couturier. Esther was probably much younger, and can be identified as the sister of Thomas Dutoit (b. 1634) the "Grand Voyeur des chemins du Pays de Vaud", son of Jean Dutoit "guererier" and Catherine Bosson. If we assume the couturier later married Catherine Bosson, the families are tied together as required, and the otherwise unplaced "guererier" would become part of the "au Clerc" branch. So far, no confirmation for this hypothesis has been discovered in the notarial records. However, we have not made a detailed study of the various parcels of land that are mentioned in these records, as it is often extremely difficult to establish that two records are actually referring to the same property. If it can be established that the couturier and the "guererier" owned properties with similar descriptions, the hypothesis might be given more weight.

There seems to be no other use of the word transcribed as "guererier" (a word we could interpret perhaps as "the healer", but that would normally be spelled something like "guerisseur") in any of the documents that we have reviewed, whether church records or notarial records. Might it have arisen through a misunderstanding of "couturier"? In addition to the single mention of Jean Dutoit "guererier" with his wife Catherine Bosson (her name clearly written), there is also one reference to Jean Dutoit "officier de Moudon" and his wife Catherine, 1631, but it is not clear that this refers to the same couple.

While the surviving records do not make an explicit connection between these two couples, except for the relationship implied between the two wives of Isaac Margueron, there does not seem to be any other solution. Jean Dutoit the couturier appears to be the same person as Jean Dutoit the "guererier", husband first of Claudine Sauvageat and then of Catherine Bosson.

The church records for this period are clearly incomplete. It is likely that at least a couple children have been missed. Also, it is not yet clear when Jean died, except that he can be inferred to have died before 1664, when his daughter Esther was noted as living "in her mother's house" at Moudon. Further, a transaction of 01 jul 1649 (Abraham Faucherres, notary at Moudon, ACV DL 39) involves Daniel Dutoit son of the late Jean Dutoit dit au Clerc, with his wife Pernon Cortesi. Jean was still alive in November, 1646, acting on behalf of his daughter-in-law Pernon Cortesi.

There are several mentions of a Claudine Dutoit in the church records. The first one that might apply here is 17 apr 1652, Claudine fille de Jean Dutoit dit au Clerc, appearing as sponsor for the baptism of Claudine, daughter of Antoine Dutoit and Anne Cavin. A few months later, 13 jun 1652, we find a sponsor Dame Claudine Du Toict fille de feu Monsieur le juge Du Toict. Another, 14 jan 1658, Claudine daughter of Jean Dutoit appears as sponsor for the baptism of Balthazard, son of Daniel Dutoit and Christine Buttet. At least the first and last of these citations probably refer to the same Claudine, who should be another unrecorded daughter of the present Jean Dutoit. Could she be the Claudine who married Balthazard Crausaz? Initially this did not seem possible, based on the "cousins" of the first wife of Balthazard who were present for a settlement of her estate in 1688 (register attributed to Abraham Ballif, ACV DP 1/1, but certainly in the hand of the notary Isaac Dutoit). However, the unexplained relationships among several families are repeated in many documents, suggesting there might be additional connections through the wives.

There are several reasons to suppose that the Claudine who married Balthazard Crausaz was not the daughter of Jean Dutoit dit au Clerc, including the fact that the father of that Claudine did not mention any other children in his nuncupative testament as reported in 1664, and also that the real Jean Dutoit dit au Clerc was already dead by 1649. The problem will require more evidence.

From the few mentions that seem to indicate this, we make the identification that the Jean Pierre whose children are baptised 1703-1710 is the same person. An agreement between brothers and sisters Jaques, Daniel, Marie (with husband David Vulliens), and Jeanne Dutoit (husband Jean Jaton of Villard-Mendraz), 31 may 1728 (S. Briod, notary), concerns his children.

Father: François DUTOIT (b. BEF 1613, d. BEF 1662)

Baptismal record says simply son of François Dutoit, leaving the mother's name blank. Presumed to belong to François Dutoit the notary, as no other François is known at Vevey at this time. Scattered references to the (apparently minor) heirs of François have been found as early as 1662.

Jean DUTOIT       (ID #I20945)

(male)
Family 1 : Jeanne POCHON (d. aft 1664)
  1. +Claudine DUTOIT (bp. 29 SEP 1642, d. aft 1668)

Apart from the fact that he died before 1658, we know almost nothing about him. He is related in some way to Antoine Dutoit the Lieutenant of Chavannes. It is tempting to think that he might be a half-brother of the Lieutenant, born before 1627, the year the father of the Lieutenant married Magdelaine Berzin. But there seems to be no baptism that could be his. The available baptisms at Moudon are: 31 jul 1603, Jean son of Daniel Dutoit; 04 sep 1612, Jean son of Jaques Dutoit dit Maillard; 15 apr 1620, Jean son of Jean Dutoit of Chavannes (this one probably married Antheine Cortesi). At Payerne, there is also 10 may 1602, Jean son of Elie Dutoit, and again, 08 feb 1614, Jean son of Elie Dutoit (thus the first Jean son of Elie probably died in infancy) . Jean son of Jean Dutoit of Chesalles, probably born about 1620, married Jeanne Olevey in 1644 and can therefore be ruled out. At Syens, the twins Jean and Benoicte, children of Jean Dutoit, weaver of Bressonaz, were baptised 27 jun 1624.

The following is in effect a nuncupative testament, but was reported at least 6 years after his death:

(Abraham Faucherre, notary at Moudon, ACV DL 40/2, 25 jan 1664)

Honnorable Anthoine Duthoict de Chavasnes a declairé que pendant la maladie de defunct honnorable Jehan Duthoit dudit Chavasnes estant au pres d'iceluy, iceluy se declaira qu'il bailloit en premier dix florins aux pauvres. Et concernant sa femme qu'il n'avoit jamais rien receu d'elle mais que son frere Claude luy devoit trois cents florins desquels il n'avoit rien heu es lesquels il laissoit trier a sadite femme advenant qu'elle se remaria à un autre, et outre lesdits 300 florins qu'il luy bailloit du sien pour les peynes et assistances qu'elle luy faisoit la somme de 200 florins. Et ne se remariant pas advenant qu'elle ne peut se comporter avec son beaufils et sa fille, il la laisse jouissante sa vie durant de la moitié de tous ses biens. Et pour chef de son testament, qu'il laissoit sadite fille heritiere de tous sesdits biens. Le Sr. Jaques Veyre a declairé le mesme. Laquelle declairation ainsi que dessus faicte, ladite Jehanne Pechon a accepté ensemble Baltazard Crausaz son beaufils au lieu de le faire emologuer en Justice. Presents honnorables Jehan Oulevey, Jaques Creaturaz, Balthazard Porchet de ... (?) et autres tesmoins.
