My maternal fourth great grandfather, Jean-Pierre Pletschette.
Son of Jacob Jacques PLETCHETTE and Anne Jeanne ADAMY (Adami).
Married Anna Maria ASSELBORN born in 1784 in Nengsen, Neunhausen, Canton of Wiltz, Luxembourg.
A possible Explanation of the origin could be as per Jeannot Nehrenhausen:”Pletschette” comes from the Latin name “Pilatus”. This original Roman name has been affected by various phonetic changes during a period of more or less one thousand years (1st > 10th century A.D.). By the year 1000, this evolution came to an end, producing the definitive form “Pletschette”. During this millenarian period, “Pletschette” has been a Christian name (first name), that eventually became a family name about 1500.
