Famille Catillaz


Histoire

Trying to determine the origin of the surname CATILLAZ. As you will note from the commentary below this Catholic family came to the USA from the French speaking Canton of Friboug in Switzerland and the first date of birth of a member in our records was c. 1800. Does this CATILLAZ name have a Swiss origin? We think it more likely is a name of French origin? If that be the case, what event or circumstance might have brought this family from France to Switzerland at the end of the 1700s? Was there a war, an economic condition, religious persecution? One "expert" tells us to "check Spanish records as the last name sounds as if its origins are in Spain and not in France!" I am sure there is some scholar on these sort of things that can come up with some logical answers. Should anyone have any thoughts or contributions to this question please e-mail your reply to: biglolo@rr1.connriver.net Thanks.
