Pillichody - Family Group Sheets



Below is the Pillichody line of my husband's. Further down is another Pillichody line that I have yet to connect to the Pillichody's that emigrated from Switzerland to America. These Pillichody's are still living in Switzerland.

Also, a note... FGS means Family Group Sheet. I've done the pages for each person in the form of the FGS. So, that is how you will travel around each family or person by the FGS link next to the person's name. Beside some there will be also a history or photos link. These links will be popup windows. So if you have a popup blocker like I do take the necessary steps to be able to see the window. (Ex. My popup blocker has me hold down the Ctrl key to keep the window from going away.)

The Castle of Bavois, in the Canton of Vaud, near the town of Orde, was in the Pillichody family from about 1740 to 1800.   There is a website (unfortunately in French), with castle pictures, at:


The Pillichody's that occupied the castle included:

Jean-Louis Pillichody ( - 1761)
               his brother, François Barthelemy Pillichody (- 1782)

François-David Pillichody

Louis-Georges François Pillichody, who was married to Louise (Petitmaitre) Pillichody

In those years Switzerland was a loose confederation of states (cantons), largely controlled by warlords.   There were Swiss (Pillichody's) in Napoleon's army, also a revolution against the "Ancient" regime, and somewhere in all this, about 1800, the Pillichody's lost the castle.

The castle is now privately owned by a rich banker in Geneva, who has restored and decorated it in the 1700's style.   It is very impressive, with coats of arms, armor, wall hangings, etc.   He uses it as a 'getaway' chateau on weekends and in summer.
