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

The origins the old family name Loredo can be found within medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Loredo family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Loredo was an occupational name for a person who worked at a granary. The name translates literally from the Old French as of the granary.
