A settlement recorded 18 feb 1633 (Jean Morel, notary at Vevey) concerns a dispute about an old debt between the late Noé Guédon and the Crochat family. The children of Noé are represented by his widow (not named) and her brother Pierre Dutoit of Vevey. About 1610, there are two Pierre Dutoit's who have bourgeois status in Vevey, generally known as the elder and the younger, or else the son of the late Louis or the son of the late Thomas. The key to understanding which Pierre is which is found in the testament of Claudaz Savoye, 26 nov 1628, "mallade et affligée de peste", recorded by notary Jean Maquelin. She is the widow of Pierre Dutoit "le jeune", and names children Louis (logically, named for his grandfather), Noel (logically, named for Noé Guédon, his uncle), and François. This hinges on the early death of Pierre's first wife, Jaquemaz Michoud, not unlikely but not confirmed either. Unfortunately, the other Pierre seems also to have had a wife named Claudaz, his widow as early as 1615.
Date of contract, recorded by François Chevalley, notary at Vevey.

Pierre the brother of Elie is noted as Tisserand or Tissot before 1620, hoste after that. He is cited in a large number of documents at Moudon. By 1629, his brother Elie is tuteur of his children. This Pierre is also known as "the younger", and apparently also as "officier de Moudon" 1620-1621. This conclusion depends on identifying the godson of the elder Gaspard Dutoit baptised in 1613 with the son of Pierre hoste mentioned after his death; the godson mentioned in the elder Gaspard's testament is son of the officier!
In order to establish whether all of these Pierre Dutoits can be the same man, it is necessary to pay attention to exact dates in the various citations:
25 apr 1624 (Baltazard DeCristaz, notary at Moudon): Pierre Dutoit bourgeois et hoste de Moudon sells land at Vulliens to Abraham Burnand. (Pierre is also mentioned in the baptismal records of Moudon—on occasions when he appears as a sponsor—as the hoste at La Croix Blanche, 1624-1626.)
25 nov 1627 (Baltazard DeCristaz, notary at Moudon): Pierre son of the late Antoine Dutoit of Chavannes sells his share of an estate held in common with Jaques Dutoit his brother, to Pierre Dutoit hoste. This record proves that Pierre the hoste is not the son of Antoine.
25 feb 1629 (Baltazard DeCristaz, notary at Moudon): Susanne daughter of the late Gustin (Augustin) Socquet vivant bourgeois de Moudon wife of Samuel Monney of Bienne (absent, hors du pays at this date), with her uncle Jaques Combremond, and Jaques Socquet her nephew, cedes to her brother-in-law Pierre Dutoit, hoste at La Croix Blanche and bourgeois of Moudon, any interest that she may have in the estate of the late Maître Jean Amioti vivant bourgeois d'Estavayer and resident of Lausanne, son of the late Vuillemoz Amioti, vivant bourgeois d'Estavayer, for 100 florins. She does this, apparently, out of gratitude for Pierre allowing her and her children to live in his house at Moudon. Among other things, this record suggests that the name given as Sacquet in the church records at Moudon should be taken as Socquet. The same notary mentions debts to Pierre Dutoit, hoste at Moudon, 07 apr 1629 and 13 apr 1629.
09 nov 1629 (Jaques Jayet, notary at Moudon, ACV DL 57/3 fol. 64): Marguerite Menouz widow of the late Pierre Dutoit vivant bourgeois de Moudon seels to Jean Duc of Villardbramaz, "assavoir, generallement tous et ung chescungs les biens à ladite venditrice donnez et remis en payement pour ses droictz dotaux par Elie Dutoict tutheur des hoirs dudit feu Pierre Duthey son feu frere siz à Chavannes..." for a price of 8000 florins. Unless there was another Pierre of that era with a wife Marguerite, this would indicate that Pierre died between April 13 and November 9 of 1629. This transaction, incidentally, explains how the Duc family of Villars-Bramard became established at Chavannes-sur-Moudon.
16 nov 1629 (Baltazard DeCristaz, notary at Moudon): Jean Rey, Lieutenant de Carrouges, owes Marguerite, widow of the late Pierre Dutoit vivant bourgeois de Moudon for 3 cows. Among other documents about the same time confirming the death of Pierre Dutoit, 26 nov 1629 (same notary), Marguerite widow of the late Pierre Dutoit "vivant hoste et bourgeois de Moudon" owes Daniel Montet bourgeois de Lutry for wine (the main, or perhaps the only product of Lutry). Likewise, 07 dec 1629, Pierre Goley owes Marguerite Menod widow of the late Pierre Dutoit hoste, for a horse. Even more precise, but somewhat difficult to believe, he is apparently alive in documents of 24 and 25 sep 1629, but listed as "the late" Pierre on 26 sep 1629, documents of Balthazard DeCristaz!
07 dec 1646 (Benoit Giraudet, notary at Moudon): Pierre Dutoit bourgeois de Moudon hoste at Dompreloye (modern Donneloye) with his wife Marguerite Malingre and her nephew Spectable Abraham Malingre sell a house to Daniel Berchery bourgeois of Moudon on the Rue de Rostoborgeaux. This proves that there were two Pierre Dutoits who were "hostes" (innkeepers), both with wives named Marguerite! The identity of the second one has not been determined. Is it possible the second is the son of the first?
We finally located one document that proves the Pierre Dutoit who married Marguerite Menoz is the same one who had earlier married Catherine Socquet. The records of Jaques Jaquier, notary at Moudon, contain a settlement regarding "difficulties" that had arisen between Marguerite Menoz, widow of Pierre Dutoit, hoste, and Gaspard and Marguerite, his children by his first wife Catherine Socquet (ACV DL 52/1 fol. 251, dated 08 oct 1629). In addition, we found an appearance of Marguerite, wife of Pierre Dutoit, hoste at La Croix Blanche, in the baptismal records for Moudon, 21 jun 1629.
As a result of these discoveries, we can place Pierre's death between June 21 and October 8, 1629, and possibly during the night of 25-26 September, 1629.
He is apparently alive in documents of 24 and 25 sep 1629, but listed as "the late" Pierre on 26 sep 1629, documents of Balthazard DeCristaz, notary.

Document of B. Girardet, notary, dated 25 sep 1655, notes that Joseph Fabri, elsewhere identified as the tuteur of Pierre and his sister Marguerite, is also Pierre's stepfather. Thus, it appears that Joseph Fabri has married Claudine, widow of Daniel Dutoit.
While Pierre was the subject of many document relating to the settlement of his parents' estates, no evidence has been found to suggest that he married or left descendants. However, it is possible that one of the unassigned Pierre Dutoits of that period might eventually be identified with him.
A typical document that establishes some of the relationships of this family follows:
Pierre Gavin, notary at Moudon, 20 feb 1661.

Occupation variously listed, also chamoiseur. One baptism lists him as "Visguébé", an word used at least once interchangeably with chamoiseur. It might have something to do with the production of fine "white" leathers. The deciphering of this puzzling passage allows us to identify a few other passages where either Pierre Dutoit or Isaac Dutoit (presumably his son) appears with this title in various spellings. A baptism 22 jul 1638 could be his, but does not list the mother's name or the father's occupation.
Possibly he was the child of Antoine Dutoit of Moudon baptised 22 jul 1638, the given name of the child not recorded.

This is apparently the Pierre Dutoit, notary, whose registers from 1672-1730 have survived. He seems to have been working then at Corsier-sur-Vevey. We identify him with the Pierre Dutoit noted as "égrège" in the 1670's, and ultimately with the son of "discret" François born in 1646. He was admitted to the notariat of Vevey 10 jan 1672, according to his "minutaire premier". His wife was probably daughter of Régis, Receveur at Corsier.
A volume of records he forwarded to the Bailliage of Lausanne biennially from 1692 to 1718, relating to payment of lods (in effect, a real estate transfer fee), has survived, along with a letter of transmittal that accompanied the records he sent in 1718. The outside address, as microfilmed by the Mormons, includes the image of what seems to be a 300-year old housefly. The letter itself notes that he is now in his 73rd year, and is the oldest of the notaries. If he can have a modest pension, he writes, he will be able to continue to hold up his pen and perform his function as notary:
Magnifique Puissant et Très-Honoré Seigneur, Ensemble la Noble Séance,
"Le pauvre Notaire Dutoit de Vevey, le Très-humble et Très-obéissant Serviteur de Votre Seigneurie, Vous Remonstre avec tout le respect et la soumission dont il peut estre capable, Qu'ayant considéré les lettres qu'il a pleu a Votre Seigneurie de lui addresser, que comme elles ne portent que de produire les registres de rière Votre Baliage, et qu'il ne s'agit que des actes portantz lauds pour lesquels recevoir il a demandé la permissions, tout le reste ayant été receu rière le Baliage de Vevey, Blonay, Monstreux, etc., cela ne Vous auroit causé que de la peine et du chagrin inutilement, C'est pourquoy il vous envoye ce qu'il a receu et stipulé depuis le 12 8bre 1716, après ce qu'il en a envoyé à Mr. Portaz le Receveur de Votre Seigneurie en vertu de Votre ordonnance dudit jour, les ayant relevé en particulier. et sans aucune exception, Vous demandant Très-humblement pardon s'il ne les a pas pû porter Jeudi dernier, ne luy étant pas possible de porter aucune chose, ayant desja trop de peine de se porter soy-même, estant dans la 73 année de son aage, fort foible de Corps, de moyens et de facultez, que s'il étoit moyenné, il ne seroit pas si mal habillé, de sorte qu'il est digne de Compassion et de l'avoir en recomandation pour quelque temps et jours qu'il a vivre. Et ainsi, il prie Très-humblement Votre Magnifique Seigneurie de la maintenir en son droict et de la suporter un peu, veu sa pauvreté. Et qu'il n'a pas de quoy vivre ny soutenir sa famille, que si cela n'est, il sera contraint de recourir à LL. EE. pour les suplier Très-humblement de lui ordonner pension pour subsister le reste de ses jours, et luy et sa famille. Et ainsi en lui maintenant la plume, il n'aura pas besoin d'incommoder LL. EE. pour ce sujet, partant il suplie encore Très-humblement Votre Magnifique Seigneurie de le suporter un peu, car ce sera un acte de Charité, comme on suporte bien des personnes qui s'anticipent de recevoir les actes portantz lauds hors de leur pouvoir, je veux dire rière les terres de Votre Seigneurie de Lausanne, auxquels on ne dit mot, et que sans me flatter, je donne les designations plus librement que tous les autres du Baliage, car je peux dire en pure vérité que feu le Receveur Régis se venoit souvent plaindre a moy, disant que ceux de Corsier étoyent fort négligentz à bailler leurs designations, me venant trouver pour scavoir si je les avoy receus. Et ainsi estant le plus vieux de tous les Notaires, privé de facultez, il se recommande derechef à Votre Magnifique Seigneurie et Noble assistance, de le laisser subsister le reste de ses jours avec sa plume. Car il s'asseure que Dieu Vous en sera le Remunerateur tant en ce siècle quen celuy qui est a venir. Et en interinant son humble Requeste, il continuera ses voeux et prières au Toutpuissant pour la prospérité et bénédiction de Votre Magnifique Seigneurie et Noble et Généreuse famille.
[Translation: "The poor Notary Dutoit of Vevey, most humble and obedient servant of Your Lordship, reminds you with all the respect and submission of which he is capable, that having considered the letters it has pleased Your Lordship to address to him, and as they only concerned producing the registers from within Your Bailliwick, and that it is only a matter of the acts requiring fees that have been requested, all the rest pertaining to the Bailliwicks of Vevey, Blonay, Montreux, etc., these would only cause you unnecessary trouble and inconvenience. That is why he sends you what he has recorded and stipulated since the 12th of October, 1716, after those that he sent to Mr. Portaz, the Receiver of Your Lordship by virtue of your ordonnance of that date, having copied them specifically and without exception, begging most humbly your pardon if he has not been able to deliver them last Thursday, it being impossible for him to deliver anything, being in too much pain to deliver even himself, being in the 73rd year of his age, very weak in body, means, and faculties, which if he had, he would not be so poorly dressed, so that he is worthy of compassion and to be favored for such time and days as he may still live. And thus, he prays most humbly to Your Magnificent Lordship to maintain him as his due and to support him a little, in view of his poverty. And as he has neither the means to support himself nor his family, he will have no recourse but to petition Their Excellencies to beg them most humbly to decree a pension for his subsistence for the rest of his days, both for himself and his family. And thus holding up his pen, he will have no need of inconveniencing Their Excellencies on this subject, if he might ask Your Magnificent Lordship to support him a little, for that would be an act of Charity, as one would support those who can be expected to record acts incurring fees outside their districts, I mean to say within Your District of Lausanne, about which no one says a word, and that, without flattering myself, I give the information more freely than all the others of this Bailliwick, for I can tell you in pure truth that the late Receiver Régis often came to complain to me, saying that the notaries of Corsier were most negligent in forwarding the information, coming to me to see if I had received anything from them. And thus being the oldest of all the Notaries, deprived of faculties, he recommends himself once again to Your Magnificent Lordship and noble assistance, to let him continue for the rest of his days with his pen. For he assures himself that God will be your renumerator in this age as well as that which is to come. And in forwarding his humble request, he continues his good wishes and prayers to the All Powerful for the prosperity and well-being of Your Magnificent Lordship and Noble and Generous family."]
The compiled genealogies of de Montet at the Archives Communales de Vevey make him a brother of Jaques Dutoit, son of Isaac, and note only the second wife and a total of four children. They do, however, give additional information, including death dates.
Date given by de Montet, in compiled genealogies at the Archives Communales de Vevey, p. 221.
Church record does not give parentage of either spouse, but it does list the groom as "Eg. Pierre Dutoict", thus indicating he is a notary.

Named as Officer de Moudon in a document of 09 apr 1694, Isaac Dutoit notary (ACV DL 69/1), which shows that his mother Marie Fudry had died. He survived until at least 27 dec 1709, when notary Jean Pierre Gindre recorded a transaction involving Pierre Dutoit "ancien officier de ville de Moudon". The published account of this family adds another child Pierre who married Jeanne Rosat, but that Pierre belongs in the dit "ès André" branch, and not here! However, there may have been other children, not yet discovered.
So far, we have found no citation of this Pierre that connects him to Chavannes. He is always listed either as "officier de ville de Moudon" or simply "de Moudon". Although his ancestry is found in Chavannes, his family was by now firmly rooted in Moudon. The distinction is important, because it helps us sort out the other, more ambiguous records. Where a child is attributed to Pierre Dutoit "de Chavannes", we can be fairly sure it is not a child of Pierre Dutoit and Marie Frossard!
However, he inherited land at Chavannes, as the following explains:
Jaques Crausaz, notary at Moudon, 22 may 1693.
Acquis pour Monsieur Isaac Nicaty bourgeois de Moudon, Contre les honnorables Pierre Dutoict Officier et Denys Besonson Beaufreres dudit Moudon.

Pierre was dead by 1709, but we have not located any significant documents relating to his estate. If such documents can be found, perhaps in the records of the cour de justice at Moudon, we might be able to make more definitive statements about his children.

The children given here are those from the published account, which assumed the Pierre who married Jeanne Rosat was the son of Pierre Dutoit of Moudon and Marie Frossard. However, the same Pierre is also claimed to have married Marie DeBonnet and emigrated to America. Evidently, there are multiple Pierre's. The one who descends from Marie Frossard was Pierre Philippe Dutoit, father of the minister Dutoit-Membrini. The Recueil des Généalogies Vaudoises notes confusion over the baptismal date in a footnote, but does not explain how a Pierre Dutoit supposedly born in 1671 could have fathered children as early as 1685.
It now appears all but certain that the baptism listed in the published account for the Pierre who married Jeanne Rosat is actually the baptism of Pierre Philippe Dutoit, son of Pierre Dutoit and Marie Frossard. Is it possible that these two persons (Pierre who married Jeanne Rosat and Pierre Philippe who married Susanne Membrini) are actually one? Evidently not, as Pierre Philippe was studying at Lausanne at the same time this Pierre was living in Moudon. The Pierre who married Jeanne Rosat would more likely have been born no later than about 1660-1665, in order to have children as early as 1685. Moreover, we have not found any indication that the husband of Jeanne Rosat is in fact a son of Pierre Dutoit and Marie Frossard, or indeed that Pierre and Marie ever had a son Pierre (apart from Pierre Philippe).
The very same 1671 baptism for Pierre Dutoit is claimed by SOME descendants of the Pierre Dutoit who was among the earliest settlers at Manakintown, Henrico Co., VA. His will identifies him as Pierre Dutoit "de Moudon", and the only Pierre of about the right age recorded at Moudon is this one in 1671. Another group of descendants from the same settler of Manakintown, apparently unaware of his will, relies on an account attributed to a descendant born in 1838, which says that he was Pierre Dutois, Huguenot refugee from France, whose children escaped into Holland hidden in baskets of vegetables. This account even includes the detail that a brave young son was wounded in the leg when a soldier thrust a sword into the basket in which he was hiding, but the boy did not make a sound until the danger had passed. As far as we can determine, the settler was a single man when he arrived at Manakintown in the company of an Abraham Nicod. We suppose the settler's origins might equally be sought in the vicinity of Vevey.
The first real documentary evidence for the identity of the Pierre Dutoit who married Jeanne Rosat was found in the records of Pierre Dutoit, notary at Vevey, and it points in an entirely different direction. A document 20 feb 1694 concerns a sale, Pierre Dutoit justicier de Chavannes for his wife Jeanne Rosat, to George Terraux of Corsier, regarding a vineyard at Corsier. Another document of 19 may 1694 has Pierre and Jeanne selling to Jaques François de la Fontaine of Vevey, a property above the church at La Chiésaz. Jeanne Rosat had acquired this property that day in a settlement of an estate, but unfortunately the nature of the estate was not described. There was indeed a Pierre Dutoit justicier de Chavannes at about this time, but he was the son of Daniel Dutoit dit ès André, and he had children Estiennaz and Isaac who are named in various documents about 1730. This compares favorably, as far as it goes, with the known children of the Pierre Dutoit who married Jeanne Rosat.
Further searching reveals: 21 dec 1701, Pierre Dutoit dit ès Andrey juré de Chavannes, debt to Jaques Escuyer of "Imonens"(?) (Daniel Antoine Jossevel, notary). 18 jan 1708, he witnesses a document of the same notary. 19 sep 1717, Isaac and Jacob Dutoit of Chavannes, brothers, sell to Isaac son of the late Pierre Dutoit dit ès Andrey (Abraham Dutoit, notary, ACV DL 92/2). 05 feb 1729, Baltazard Dutoit dit ès Andrey for children of the late Pierre Dutoit dit ès Andrey against various Crausaz, Pierre's son Isaac is present representing the other children (Daniel Antoine Jossevel). 27 oct 1730, Isaac son of the late Pierre Dutoit dit ès Andrey en son vivant justicier de Chavannes, and Benjamin Crausaz for his wife Estienne Dutoit, sister of Isaac, including mention of their uncle the late Philippe Dutoit (same notary). 12 nov 1731, Eve Bralliard widow of the late Isaac Dutoit, and Benjamin Crausaz for his wife Estienne Dutoit, agreement to divide debts that they share (same notary).
Therefore, we assign the baptism of 1671 to Pierre Philippe, and we assign the Pierre who married Jeanne Rosat to his rightful place in the dit "ès André" branch of the Dutoit clan.

No connections so far identified, and no children, but there are several isolated mentions that cannot be assigned to any other Pierre Dutoit. He was hoste at Donneloye at least from 1636 to 1658, and had wife Marguerite Malingre. He is identified 09 feb 1658, in a debt for wine purchased from Abraham Bastian of Lutry (Antoine Piccard, notary, ACV DI 101/7) as Pierre Duthoict of Moudon, resident at Donneloye. Similar debt 01 aug 1636, Pierre Duthey de Donneloye (David Curlat, notary, ACV DG 71/1).

He is not mentioned with his brothers in 1684 on the occasion of the sale of the family's rights of "fournage" (in effect, a tax on the use of ovens) in Neyruz, so it assumed he died before that date without leaving male heirs.

Named along with his wife (her surname only) for the baptism of their son Isaac in 1659. So far, only one document has been found which gives the wife's full name, a debt of Jean Dutoit of Chesalles to Marie Dorothée Buttet, widow of the late Pierre Dutoit (11 jan 1665, David de Treytorrens, notary at Moudon). (Also mentioned as his widow 19 nov 1664, ACV DL 91/9, in an unidentified register suspected of belonging also to David de Treytorrens.) In the testament of his wife, 1670, he is identified only as "bourgeois de Moudon" (immediately after noting that his wife's late father had served on the city council of Moudon), and she makes a bequest of 5 florins to the "Abaye des Cordonniers" to be distributed among the poor. She also mentions a godson Samuel Dutoit. Apart from that, there seem to be no clues. There are still more records that need to be examined, such as an incomplete series of the proceedings of the "cour de justice" of Moudon for this period.

Marriage record at Chêne-Pâquier specifies his father is François Dutoit of Neyruz, bourgeois de Moudon, and assesseur at Thierrens. There is a gap between the baptisms of his children, suggesting some may have been missed or recorded in some other parish.

While the baptism is nominally indicated as having been preformed in September, 1691, the lack of a definite date suggests that it may have been recorded out of order. It is possible it actually belongs in 1693.

Not yet clear which Pierre this is. The Pierre Dutoit who was married to Agathe daughter of Daniel Dutoit the libraire is also identified as libraire himself in the partage recorded by Jean Daniel Crausaz in 1738. Further, the same partage says that the "belle-mère" (probably meaning mother-in-law in this context) of Agathe is named Maillet. Pierre paid for the burial of his father-in-law, for which he was repaid in the settlement.
