Family Name – Lozuet

 

My great grandmother Clara Eliza Lozuet

 

This has been a tricky name to trace as most of my Lozuet members were female and therefore the name has slowly disappeared down the line. The way my family pronounce this surname is ‘L-o-e-z-w-a-y’ or ‘L-o-z-w-a-y’.

Spelling variations: Lozue, Lozuet, Lozouet

THE LOZUETS:

Jean Louis Desire Lozue was born c.1840′s. His occupation was  a seaman. His wife was Elsie Elizabeth Le Brocq of St. Ouens. Their children were:

  1. Eliza Lozue – born 21st June 1864. Eliza married Octave Theobald Duthel and moved to England to live. In 1892 she gave birth to their son Octave Theobald ‘John’ Duthel.
  2. John Lozue – born  23rd April 1866

John Lozue (b.1866) then went on to marry Clara Anna Mabey. Their children were:

  1. Clara Eliza Lozuet – b.1895 (my great grandmother).
  2. Ada Florence Lozuet - born 15th August 1897 in St. Helier. Ada married John Norton Amy.
  3. Violet Florence MabeyLozuet - born 4th Nov. 1898 in St. Helier.
  4. Mabel Maud Lozuet – born 14th 1902 in St. Helier. Mabel married Francis Benest. Ada gave birth to their daughter Mabel Maud Benest.
  5. Elsie Lilian Lozuet - born 16th October 1907 in St. Helier. Elsie married Norman Arthur Norton in Birmingham, England.

Clara Eliza Lozuet (b.1895) marries George Perchard Davey (my great grandfather). They have a son Kenneth George Davey (my grandfather).

(Notice how the letter ‘t’ has now been added to the end of the surname).

 

 

In memory of Violet Lozuet (my great grandmothers sister).

Sadly the Lozuet name has died out within my family as the last generation were all girls.

    Please pardon me my poor written English. I hope you will understand most of this message.

    My mother’s maiden name is Lozouet and there was an Ozouet family living in Guernsey until 1802. I know quite a lot about this family. You can ask me what you do not know yet and I might be of some help.

    As for the final “t”, I do not know about your Jersey family but I certainly know that our ancestor Jean-Baptiste Lozouet who left La Haye-du-Puits in 1772 for Paris already had this final “t” in his surname.

    It seems all Ozouets, Lozues, Lozuets and Lozouets share the same ancestry. There was only one spelling and one name (L’Ozouët) in 1519 in Cotentin (Normandy) before they split in different branches, the ones who adopted Reformation leaving for the Channel Islands while the ones who remained Roman Catholics stayed on the continent.

    Different spellings were written in various documents due to misunderstanding or bad pronounciation.

    The meaning of the name “L’Ozouët” comes from the Breton language. When the Kings of Brittany occupied nowadays Cotentin before the year 933, they brought some Breton settlers with them. Among those, there was one L’Ozouët. But the names became permanent only during the XIIth and XIIIth centuries. The people name L’Ozouët then might not be of this descent.

    In any event, the name refers to a person who practices herbalism. The plants this herbalist uses are collectively named an “Ozouët” in Breton.

    Yours truly,
