Denise GACHET       (ID #I7524)

(female)
Father: Jean GACHET (b. ABT 1509, d. 10 DEC 1591)
Mother: Denise REGNAULD (b. BEF 1520, d. BEF 1579)

 

Information from Petitpierre's Patrie Neuchateloise (1935) says that Denise Gachet daughter of Jean Gachet and Denise Regnault married a Muriset. A document of Jean Ballif, notary at Payerne 30 aug 1583 shows that Marguerite Morizet wife of Jean Jacquier of Moudon and Jean Morizet of Romont have a hereditary interest in land owned jointly with Jean Gachet, whose late wife was Denise Regnault and whose son is Josué Gachet.

If Marguerite and Jean Morizet are children and heirs of this Denise Gachet, we must put their birthdates about 1555 or earlier, and consequently Denise Gachet's birthdate around 1535. Moreover, another coheir appears to be Claude Gachet, not named by Petitpierre. From the fact that the parents of Marguerite and Jean Morizet are not mentioned and that they appear to be equal coheirs with Josué, we surmise that Denise Gachet was already dead by 1583.

We have not ruled out that Petitpierre was mistaken and that Denise Gachet never existed!

Francesia GACHET       (ID #I27573)

(female)
Father: Johannes GACHET (b. BEF 1350, d. BEF 1425)
Mother: Perrussona _____ (dates unknown)

Family 1 : Hillinus du LANTHOD (dates unknown)

 

In the terrier ACV Fl 392, compiled 1424-1428 for Humbert de Savoie, she is identified (fol. 162v) as "Francesia filia quondam Johannis Gaschet de Villar en Vuilliez uxor Hyllini dou Lanthod burgensis Friburgi", and she owns various parcels of land at Villars in her own name and also jointly with Roletus Gachet, whose parentage, however, seems nowhere to be stated in this terrier. At least one passage in this terrier (fol. 436v) refers to property that "Roletus Gaschet et Francesia uxor Hyllini dou Lanthod tenent causa excambii facti cum Johannem Gaschet", but this Johannes would perhaps not be the late father of Francesia, but rather, some other Johannes, perhaps one of the unnamed heirs of Vuilliermus Gachet, also mentioned among the adjacent property owners in this terrier. However, we think this passage could equally well apply to an exchange made in the indefinite past, the fact that this Johannes had already died simply not mentioned. Hence, there is no clear answer here regarding the parentage of Johannes, apparent father of both Roletus and Francesia. Even more suggestive, however, is a passage in the same reconnaissance where we find (fol. 434v), "Johannes Gaschet tanquam heredes Vuilliermi Gaschet". As it is used in the terriers, the conjunction tanquam can often be interpreted as "representing" or "acting for"; if the parties were being enumerated as separate entities, some other conjunction is generally used, such as necnon. It is just possible that this passage is trying to tell us that Johannes was in fact one of the heirs of Vuilliermus Gachet. However, even if this interpretation can be supported, it still does not settle the problem of the relationship between the Johannes and Nycoletus.

  2.  Nicolas GACHET (b. bef 1487, d. aft 1537)

 

Document of Pierre Chuard, notary at Payerne, dated 23 apr 1522, has Jean son of the late Henry Jan of Corcelles selling land to Pierre Gachet son of the late François Gachet clerk and bourgeois of Payerne. François is also identified as the father of Pierre Gachet in Pierre's marriage contract and in the subsequent acknowledgement of the receipt of the dowry. A document of Pierre Moron (père), notary at Payerne, dated 12 feb (?) 1483 indicates François Gaschet acknowledges receipt of funds promised in his marriage contract, received from Bartholomé Challon, brother of his wife Jaqueta and son of the late Nicod Challon of Lutry. However, by 07 may 1587 (Claudius Banquetaz, notary at Payerne, ACV Dp 5, fol. 10), there is mention of property at Missy now held by the heirs of the late Franciscus Gachet.

[14385] Date of donation of a sum of money to support the marriage, from Rodulph Prouz and his wife Marguerite Gachet, aunt of François Gachet.

François GACHET       (ID #I7553)

(male)
Father: Pierre GACHET (b. ABT 1475, d. 21 MAR 1528)
Mother: Jaquaz DUTRUICT (d. 9 MAR 1553)

Family 1 : Collette du MOULIN (d. bef 1562)
  1.  Françoise GACHET (d. 1575)
  2.  Samuel GACHET (d. bef 1575)
Family 2 : Jeanne DE PREZ (dates unknown)
  1. +Magdelaine GACHET (b. ABT 1571)

 

Appears as adult son of Pierre in 1543. A few references to his marriage and at least two daughters have been found, but there is still considerable uncertainty about his life. The "tuteurs testamentaires" of his daughter Magdelaine are listed, only a few days after his death, as Gabriel de Prez, Sr. de Corsier, and Nicod Morattel (document in the Archives Communales de Payerne, EB 1, dated 05 nov 1575, recorded by Benoit Nible, and also found in the registers of that notary on microfilm). From the circumstances of his death, we suppose his testament was recorded at Lutry.

He died at the house of Noble Aymé de Prez, Sr. de Corcelles-le-Jorat. N. Aymé de Prez has the distinction of being the father of the wife of Isbrand Daux, who used his office of bourgmaîstre de Lausanne in a plot to deliver the city into the hands of the Duke of Savoie in December, 1588. The plot, known in French as "la conjuration d'Isbrand Daux," was discovered at the last minute, but Daux and a number of other conspirators, including N. François de Prez, son of Aymé, were able to escape into Savoie. It has always been supposed that there were other conspirators or supporters of the plot whose names have never come to light. (See the article of Maxime Reymond, "La conjuration d'Isbrand Daux", published in several installments in Revue historique vaudoise, volumes 24-25, 1916-1917.) Gabriel de Prez must have been another son of Aymé de Prez, and after his descendants sold their claim to Corsier-sur-Lutry and other fiefs, and the fief of Corcelles-le-Jorat was confiscated from François de Prez for his part in the conspiracy, the de Prez family seems to have retired to Savoie permanently. The house of the de Prez family, dating from 1421, if not earlier, still stands, in the north section of the old "bourg" of Lutry.

We are left with an interesting question, was N. François Gachet another brother-in-law of Isbrand Daux? Was the second wife of François Gachet also a de Prez? (A general reference, which does not answer this question: Frédéric-Théodore Dubois, "Les descendants des sires de Prez", Annales Fribourgeoises, 4:69-70, 1916.)

There is today a domain and vineyard at Mur, Fribourg, known as the Château de Mur, that was owned in the early 1600's by Samuel von Erlach and the Gachet family. It is most likely that this fact is connected with the marriage of Samuel von Erlach to Magdelaine Gachet, whose parentage was until recently unknown. However, we think that a document recorded by Jean Amey Bondu (ACV DP 11/3, 02 dec 1574) comes very close to proof. The document involved Bernard Jacquier, residing at Mur "en la mayson de Noble Françoys Gachet", renting two cows from him for the term of three years. Unless another of the Gachet family also owned property there, Magdelaine should be his daughter. This has in fact been proved in at least one terrier (see our entry for Magdelaine Gachet and her husband Samuel d'Erlach).

François seems to have spent many years acquiring property. He had at least two houses in the vicinity of Lutry, as well as many other parcels of land. Records of his transactions are scattered through the registers of the notaries. Probably much more could be learned from these transactions and from the "terriers". One document, recorded 09 mar 1582 at Cully (Claude de Place, notary, ACV DI 48/12), concerns a sale by Egrège Nycod Moratel, notary and bourgeois of Payerne, acting as "contuteur" (co-guardian) of Noble Magdeleyne, daughter of the late Noble François Gaschet, of a vineyard, to Jaques Beboz. This piece of property had been sold originally by Anthoine son of Pierre Lyn of Epesses to Discret Jean Chevrod of Payerne on 09 apr 1501, recorded by Discret Jehan de Turiaco (Jean de Thuery). In this case, we can see how the property found its way into the hands of Magdelaine: her father's first wife was Collette du Moulin, whose mother Isabel Chevrod was the daughter of Jean Chevrod. Although François Gachet had a daughter by his first wife, the daughter had long since died and any estate had reverted to François and then to his sole surviving heir, Magdelaine. This document, like all of those discovered so far, does not mention the name of Magdelaine's mother. However, if her mother brought any dowry into her marriage with François Gachet, her name will inevitably turn up in connection with the settlement of his estate.

A slightly different view is provided by a document quoted at length on the web site of Torny-le-Grand (Fribourg) (http://torny.ch):

14 juin 1562: " Reconnaissance de noble Benoîte feu noble Benoît du Molin (seigneur de Macconnens) femme d'egrige et discrèt Benoît Nibloz, secrétaire de Payerne pour 1/3 de Marguerite sa soeur femme de feu noble Charles Meyer, pour 1/3 de Françoise et Samuel libérés de noble François [Gachet] et de feue Collette sa femme, soeur des dites Benoîte et Marguerite, pour 1/3 en faveur des barons de Montagny le mont... Reconnaissons tenir en fief hommage lige des biens et reconnaissance de feu noble Anney de Mouldon, donzel et par lui à feu Messire Humbert bastard de Savoye, chevalier alors du dit Montagny es mains de feu Jean Chalvin, son commissaire reconnu d'acquis par le feu Jean Chevroz fait de feu noble François de Billens, Seigneur de Macconnens, fait pour le prix de 350 florins, le 24 février 1514, laquelle lettre d'engageure depuis a été remise à noble Benoît du Molin, comme Héritier de feu noble François de Billens par Georges Buchin de Crissier conjointe personne d'Antoine sa femme, et par noble Claude Fyvoz comme représentant de Françoise Relaissée de feu Aimé Chuard et à iceux non cohéritiers de feu Pierre Chevroz fils de feu Johan Chevroz, acquisiteur susdit par les mains de noble Benoît le 20 juin 1554 aussi d'une recharge de la somme de 80 florins sur la dite engageure, à savoir toute la dîme de Tornier-Pitet, Tornier-le-Grand et Middes que fut du dit feu noble François de Billens, lequel (quart) ne soloit partir avec les autres qui furent noble d'Aygremont et Item et la sexte part d'un autre quart des dits discours avec Hans Ruyf bourgeois conseiller fribourgeois tenant les 5 autres parts de la dite autre quarte partie sur laquelle autre et dernière quarte partie la Fille-Dieu de Romont percevait les gains..."

The reference given is "Quenet 8b p. 253", which must surely mean "quernet", but in what archives? Also, the document as quoted needs some editing: "Françoise et Samuel libérés de noble François" must refer to children of François Gachet and his wife Collette du Moulin, thus revealing an otherwise unknown son of François, who must have died soon after. Further, there are other people mentioned who figure in the story of the great families of Payerne: George Buchin de Crissier was the husband of Antonia Chevrod daughter of Jean—thus, we are dealing with another component of the extensive Chevrod inheritance. There are several other words that seem to have been rendered incorrectly: "iceux non cohéritiers" must be "iceux comme cohéritiers", and "Anney de Mouldon" is probably "Amey de Mouldon". It would be very helpful to examine the original document. which might be a terrier or quernet in the archives of Torny-le-Grand.

The first marriage, to Collette du Moulin, can be dated to 1557. Collette was still unmarried on 14 mar 1557 (Dp 73/1, fol. 337v), but by 19 sep 1557 (fol. 360), she is cited as the wife of François Gachet.

[2503] According to the family book of Niklaus Gatschet, his brother: "starb myn bruoder Franziskus Gachet in edibus dom. (?) Aymonis (?) de Prez Lustriaci."

(female)
Father: François GACHET (d. 31 OCT 1575)
Mother: Collette du MOULIN (d. bef 1562)

 

She had died by 08 apr 1575, when her father is identified as her heir in a transaction relating to the terms of the testament and donation of Antheine Chevrod dating from 1573 (Benoit Nible, notary at Payerne, ACV DP 73/3 fol. 49).

Humbertus GACHET       (ID #I28105)

(male)
Father: Bartholomeus GACHET (b. bef 1434, d. bef 1503)
Mother: Margareta ANCELLES (dates unknown)

 

He acknowledged owing a "cense" of 3 deniers to the Abbey of Payerne 20 may 1490, for a small property at Agnens (Claudius Banquetaz, notary, ACV Dp 5, fol. 200). He is identified in this document as Humbertus filius Bartholomei Gachet de Villard, from which it seems logical to infer that he had reached the age of majority and that his father was still living. This is the only mention of him that has come to light. It seems most likely that he died without leaving a widow or children.

  2.  Jeanne GACHET (bp. 27 FEB 1639)

 

Appears in 1622 as sponsor at a baptism in Payerne, so presumably about 16 years old at that time.

Father: Jean Amey GACHET (b. ABT 1504, d. 6 MAY 1573)
Mother: Marguerite VALLIER (b. ABT 1505, d. AFT 1560)

Family 1 : Pierre DE CHAMBRIER (b. 1542?, d. 21 FEB 1609)
  1.  Catherine DE CHAMBRIER (dates unknown)
  2.  Rose DE CHAMBRIER (dates unknown)

 

From the information in the Dictionnaire Historique de la Suisse (online edition), it would appear that Isabel's mother must have been Denise Regnauld, not Marguerite Vallier. Therefore, it is possible that one or more of the other sisters are also children of Denise, and not of Vallier. The dates of first marriage, if they can be found, may be the best evidence in this regard. It is possible the date has been seriously misquoted, or that Isabel was very young at the time of her marriage.

Identified as "Nobla Jacobe Gachet" in a document of Jean Amey Bondu, 1578. It is not known if she survived her husband, but probably not, as she would likely have been listed as their "mère tutrice" in documents relating to her husband's heirs. Her testament was recorded by the same notary 31 may 1584, at which time she had three living children, Jean, Pierre, and Marguerite. It is possible she was named after the Jacob Gachet who owned land near Payerne about 1550.

[2339] Unfortunately, we have no evidence yet as to which wife of Jean Amey Gachet was the mother of Jacobe.

  5.  Isabel (Sabey) BERTHOD (dates unknown)
  6.  Louise BERTHOD (dates unknown)

 

In 1562, Jaquette Gachet widow of Claude Berthod, barber of Payerne, sold the barber's tools of her late husband and of her late son Louis, to her son-in-law Jaques Bergeret alias Berset, barber and bourgeois of Payerne (Abraham Chuard, notary). The same notary recorded her testament of 22 aug 1563, which names her children Catherine, Marguerite, Barbli (Barbille), Sabey (Isabel), and Louis (deceased), plus the two children of Louis, Louise and Anna. This testament is the source for the names of her children. However, we also found a marriage for her daughter Loysa in 1564, so perhaps the testament needs to be reexamined.

The story of Jean Gachet has been conflated with that of his elder brother Jean Amey in almost every account that has been published to date. The version most often seen claims that Jean Amey Gachet was the Seigneur de Bellevaux, and that his wife was Denise Regnauld. Denise was the daughter of Guillaume Regnauld, who inherited the fief of Bellevaux, near Neuchâtel, from his aunt Marguerite de Bellevaux, the last of her family. Denise brought the fief of Bellevaux into the Gachet family as part of her dowry (however, the marriage contract has not been located), or else she inherited it after the death of Jacob, the only legitimate son of Guillaume Regnauld—both versions of this part of the story have been published.

In fact, it was not Jean Amey, but his younger brother Jean Gachet who married Denise Regnauld, a fact that is easily demonstrated through the documents we have assembled, and with the help of the actual death dates of Jean Amey and Jean, recorded by their brother Niklaus Gatschet in his "Husbuchli" (now at the Burgerbibliothek of Bern).

Jean Gachet married a second time to Catherine Maillard or Maillardoz, by whom he had a daughter Jacobé, who settled the terms of her inheritance with her brother Josué 30 dec 1612 (Denis Pivard, notary at Moudon; the date is probably significant, for it was at about that time that Josué was exiled because of irregularities in the performance of his duties as Avoyer de Payerne). It is also possible, though not considered likely, that Catherine Maillard and her daughter belong to a later generation that has somehow escaped notice. But if that were true, we would need also a second Josué, and there seems to be no evidence for this. The matter seems to be proven conclusively by a settlement dated 20 mar 1594 (Jaques Richard, notary at Moudon, DL 79/2 fol. 244) between Noble Françoise de Blonay, widow of Noble Cathellin Loys, and Noble Catherine Maillard, widow of the late Noble Jean Gachet bourgeois and conseiller de Payerne, Seigneur de Bellevaux, as tutrice of her daughter Jaquevé Gachet, regarding a mill at Donneloye.

Jean Ballif, notary at Payerne (mainly Combremont-le-Grand) (FHL microfilm #0996235), 30 aug 1583.

En presence des honorables et prudens Claude Ruerat banderet et François de Trey, tous deux conseilliers et bourgeois dudit Payerne, tesmoins pour ce requis et appellés.

The three parcels and the documents cited with them are:

1. Demie pose, at Chenaux, "dessous Chenaulz": Claude Croserens sold for 56 ecus to Guillaume Renaud (Pierre Croserens, 14 sep 1519). After his death, and that of Denise, rights sold by Nycod Rambert on behalf of his wife Marguerite Grand to Jaques Bonard in the name of Jean Gachet for the same 56 ecus (Claude de Place, 21 apr 1577).

2. Quatre fosseries, vignoble de Lalex, "dessous los Chanoz": Claude Burdet of Lausanne sold for 26 ecus to Guillaume Renaud (Rod Chalon, Thursday after St. Bartholomy—thus late August—1516, with rachept from Simon Pierre Chalon of same date). After death of Renaud, Jerome François of Lausanne rendered a judgement to Jean Gachet for the same 26 ecus (François Dudey, 16 sep 1581). Lods granted by Louis d'Erlach, Baillif of Oron (George Ansel, 27 feb 1581).

3. Two parcels at Grandvaux "en Platrins des Verchieres", the first containing 5 fosseries, the other 3 fosseries: Jaques Bonard sold for 50 ecus to Guillaume Renaud (Claude des Granges, 02 jan 1555). After death of Renaud, Jaques Bonard granted rights to Jean Gachet and to Michée, daughter of Renaud (Estienne Richard, 03 oct 1567).

If this is correct, Guillaume was still alive in 1555, and Michée in 1567. It is not stated whether Michée or her heirs still had a claim on the third item in 1583.

These three parcels must have been in the estate of Denise Regnauld, for they are all treated the same way. Jean Gachet (not Jean Amey, because the latter died in 1573) has a 1/2 interest, the coheirs of Denise Regnauld have the other 1/2 interest. The interest of the coheirs of Denise Regnauld is split in equal portions among:

  1. Josué, son of Jean Gachet and Denise, but still under the control of Jean Gachet, implying that Josué is still under age, thus born after 1558. He is called "sole heir" of Denise, presumably that means residual heir—but the interest of Josué in these particular parcels must have been the result of a specific bequest of Denise, and not part of the residual estate.
  2. Marguerite Muriset, wife of Jean Jacquier, secretary of Moudon.
  3. Jean Muriset.
  4. Claude Gachet.

Further evidence that the Sr. de Bellevaux is not Jean Amey Gachet is provided in the records of Pierre Jan, notary at Payerne, where we find Noble Jean Gachet described as Sr. de Bellevaux on several occasions, such as 18 nov 1580 and 09 feb 1588, long after the death of Jean Amey Gachet (1573).

Jean Gachet could be the "Johannes Gatzerus ex Peterlingen diocesis Losanensis" who appears in the Matrikel of the University of Freibourg im Breisgau, 22 jan 1523, but we think the entry more likely applies to his elder brother Jean Amey. A number of other names from Vaud, Bern, and Fribourg (Switzerland) are recognizable in this Matrikel (1460-1656), provided one uses considerable imagination for the names that come from French-speaking areas. Certainly there is no other surname similar to Gatzerus in Payerne, and the period is about right for Jean to be attending a university. One could explain the spelling as an attempt to latinize a word heard as Gatché, with the assumption that it was one of those French names ending in -er, rather than one ending in -et, for the purposes of constructing an appropriate Latin nominative ending. As for the substitution of -tz- for -ch-, we may see here evidence of the local patois. French vache becomes vatsche or vatze in the patois of this region. Accoucher becomes akeutzi or acutchi. A large number of words that have -ch- in standard French are rendered as -tz-, -ts-, or -tsch- in the patois. These substitutions reflect prononciation, not a local standard for orthography. The treatment of -ch- in the patois is likely the reason that Gachet became Gatschet when it was transplanted to Bern, rather than the equivalent German spelling that would be expected if Gachet were pronounced in standard French, Gaschet. If the entry at Freiburg-im-Breiskau was for Jean Amey, perhaps Jean attended instead the University of Basel, where there is an entry in the Matrikel in 1536/37 for Joannes Gatzetus from Bern (meaning, perhaps, from the territories controlled by Bern, and not necessarily from the city of Bern).

[2477] Computed from age at death, as noted in his brother Niklaus Gatschet's "Hussbüchli."

Unfortunately, the church records for Payerne seem to be missing a number of baptisms and marriages in the early 17th Century. We have found no mention of the parentage of this Jean Gachet. He seems to have died before 1640, and that might be sufficient to explain the apparent early marriage of his son David, who may have married Anne Comte before marrying Jeanne Dessibord. But there is still considerable uncertainty about this generation.

The only Jean Gachet of the right generation in the church records is the son of Josué Gachet and Elizabeth de Faucigny baptised 21 apr 1587. We might be able to prove this parentage if we could find a record of his marriage to Anne de Trey. Her father had died and her mother had remarried to Pierre Fivaz by the time she was married. Perhaps the marriage was recorded in some other parish, but we would have expected to find the marriage contract mentioned somewhere in the enormous collection of registers from the notaries of Payerne.

This Jean Gachet, or his wife Anne Detrey, made a "reconnaissance" for the terrier ACV Ff 166, fol. 187, not yet examined.

[6141] Isolated reference to the unnamed heirs of the late Jean Gachet appear in the records of various notaries about this time, but so far no significant facts have turned up. Definitely deceased by the time his son David married.
