  3. +Jean Matthieu DUTOIT (b. ABT 1692?)
  4.  Susanne DUTOIT (b. ABT 1701, d. 22 DEC 1771)

 

A document dated 19 nov 1709 (François Dutruict, notary at Rolle) shows Esther Simon, widow of the late minister Dutoit of Rolle leasing her vineyards at Mont, witnessed by Elisée Robert, minister at Perroy. She also purchased a house at Rolle in 1710, au Rang Dessus, on the north side of the Grand Rue, between the houses of Salamon Dutruict and Jean Bochaire. She names Jean Gabriel Croutaz of Essertines, chatelain of St. George and justicier at Mont-le-Grand, as her cousin.

A number of documents recorded at Vevey by Pierre Dutoit, a relative of her husband, shed more light on the family. One of these is a separate sheet of paper that was inserted with others at the end of the notary's minutaire for 1720. A few words added in the margin are not completely legible, because of the way the extra pages were folded:

"L'an de grace courant Mille sept cent dix neuf et du mois de Juillet le vingteseptieme jour, Es mains du Notaire Juré soubsigné en la presence des tesmoins sousnommés, S'est en propre personne Establie et Constituée Vertueuse et prudente Dame Ester Simond, Vefve de feu Spectable et Sçavant Gaspard DuToict en son Vivant Ministre a Roolle au Canton de Berne, aussi Bourgeois de Vevey du mesme Canton [marginal insertion here:] < authorisée du Sr. Jean Benoit DuToict l'ainé et du Notaire soubsigné dudit Vevey ses parentz > laquelle sçachante et bien advisée et de ses droits bien informée pour Elle et les siens, A fait et Establi son procureur Special et Général l'une des qualités ne desrogeant l'autre [marginal insertion here:] < en vigueur de la procure [illegible] le 24 mars (?) dernier passé [illegible] de la Mag.

Ainsi fait et passé audit Vevey (lieu de demeure a present de ladite Dame) soubs les clauses icy requises et oportunes, en la presence des Sieurs Jean François (?) Dumatz et Antoine Robert, tous deux Bourgeois de Vevey, qui se font signer pour les deux procures tesmoins. [Signatures of Esther Dutoit née Simon, Jean Benoit Dutoict, Pierre Dutoit the notary, and the witnesses.]

"Ledit jour es mains de moy notaire et des tesmoins sousnommés, s'est establie Damoiselle Susanne fille de feu Sp. et Scavant Gaspard DuToit vivant pasteur a Roolle et Bourgeois de Vevey, et avec authorisation du Sr. Jean Benoit DuToit et du Notaire soussigné ses parentz en presence aussi de son Curateur d'y apposer son authorization comme estoit estably en ... [text becomes confused and illegible here, as if words were drafted, crossed out, and a blank left for later corrections. A line is again lost in the fold as a result of the inattention during the microfilming, but it is clear that the text largely follows the preceding document. This allows a partial reading of the section that was apparently obscured in the first document:] " ... advantage d'icelle, et [illegible] d'ecrire passer quittance qui vaille autant que si elle l'auroit passé elle meme..." [and the document finally signed by Susanne Dutoit, Jean Benoict Dutoict, Pierre Dutoict, and the same two witnesses.]

From this we conclude:

  1. That Esther had recently moved from Rolle to Vevey;
  2. That Gaspard was recognized as a citizen of Vevey in his own right; and
  3. That he was recognized as a relative of both Pierre Dutoit the notary and of Jean Benoit Dutoit the elder, thus implying that these two men were recognized as being related to each other as well.

The other documents were recorded in the minutaires of the same notary for 1719 and 1720:

28 jul 1719, Susette, daughter of the late Spectable et Docte Gaspard Dutoit, pastor at Rolle and bourgeois of Vevey, authorized by her brother Jean Matthieu Dutoit, owes her brother Discret François David Dutoit 8 Francs of France...

21 feb 1720, Susanne Picot, widow of the late Louis Philipon, in his lifetime bourgeois of Vevey, rents furniture to the Dame the widow of the minister Dutoit, in his lifetime bourgeois of Vevey, signed Esther, widow of the minister Dutoit.

12 apr 1720, Marriage contract, François David son of the late Spectable, Docte, and Sçavant Gaspard Dutoit, in his lifetime bourgeois of Vevey and minister at Rolle, assisted by Mr. the Advocat Juré Dutoit his brother of the first part, and Anne Susanne Dubois daughter of Jaques Dubois and widow of Mr. Tondeur of the second part, witnessed by the above and by the minister Aguet.

25 jun 1720, Jean [should be François!] David Dutoit doctor of medicine and bourgeois of Vevey and Anne Susanne Dubois his bride jointly owe to Susanne Picot, widow of the late Louis Philipon, for the debt contracted by their mother and mother-in-law Madame the minister Dutoit.

19 sep 1720, Madame the widow of the late minister Dutoit of Rolle, authorized by virtuous François David and Jean Matthieu Dutoit, her sons, owes to the widow of the late Louis Philipon etc. (together with a reciprocal acknowledgement of debt, noting that Esther is living at Vevey.)

28 sep 1720, Susette daughter of the late Spectable Gaspard Dutoit, with approval of her brother the Procureur Juré Dutoit, apparently deeding an interest to her mother.

01 dec 1721, Jaques Blondel, notary at Rolle: Matthieu Dutoit, bourgeois et Sr. Procureur juré de Vevey, with Ursule Simon his mother, widow of the late Spectable et Sçavant Gaspard Dutoit vivant ministre à Rolle his father, sells vineyards at Mont-sur-Rolle, "Es Agnelles" or "Es Coquettes", for the benefit of the heirs.

Another document apparently relating to Esther is in the "Inventaire Blanc", a collection of parchements and papers originally from the archives of Bern, now at the Archives Cantonales Vaudoises (ACV IB, layette 226, item 765): a sale by the widow of the late minister Dutoit of Rolle to Their Excellencies of Bern, her domaine at Tollochenaz, 1714 (not yet examined).
