      "RIGOULOT, Rigoullot, Rigolot: this truly Montbéliard name comes from the verb rigloer (to amuse oneself). This is possible but it is no more certain than the alternative root rigloe (ditch near a dwelling). We find families of the name after 1451 to the present at Raynans. Pierre Vuillemenot and Guenin Rigoulot of Raynans figure in an agreement of 1522 between the people of Raynans and those of Echenans-sur-l'Etang. In 1499 Huguenin George, alias Rigolot, makes an isolated appearance at Brevillers. About 1530 a Rigoulot family is found at Valentigney. After about 1620 there were Rigoulots at Exincourt. Léopold-Frédéric Rigoulot from Exincourt was deacon at Montbéliard ca. 1723. Later, two noted theologians appear: Jean-Frédéric Rigoulot of Sochaux (left Tubingen 1732) and Pierre Joseph Rigoulot of Montbéliard (graduated Tubingen 1737). Moreover, there were Rigoulots in the 18th century, not only at Montbéliard , but at Courcelles-lés-Montbéliard, Issans, Longeville, Etupes and Allenjoie."
