Hi Thank You for the info on the heritage of the Perrette name. As you can see mine is spelled Perette. This is possibly a baptizmal error???? All I know of the name is that my grandfather used to say that we were originally "Chevalier" but someone , somehow, along the line changed it to Perette. Or perhaps he ment that we were descend from Chevalier. Who knows? In my family we have all three spellings , Perette, Perrette and Parette.
