Where did the French laLoges family come from? What is the French laLoges family crest and coat of arms? When did the laLoges family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the laLoges family history?

The enchanting region of Bourgoigne was the place of origin of the distinguished surname laLoges. laLoges is a topographic surname, which is a form of hereditary surname. A topographic name would have been given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came. The name laLoges is derived from the Old French word "loge," meaning "lodge," and indicates that the original bearer lived in such a structure.
