Morrin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: French , Irish


The name Morrin was spawned from the landscape of northern France known as Normandy during the Middle Ages. It comes from the popular Old French given name Maurice.


Early Origins of the Morrin family


The surname Morrin was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where the family has held a family seat from ancient times.

The most unusual descendant of this family was Simon Morin, a visionary, who proclaimed himself as the Son of God and as a result was burned alive in 1663. Several essays were written on him. Two other well known members were Etienne (1625-1700), who was an Orientalist and a Calvinist minister, and Abbot Louis Morin (1636-1715), who was a respected physician and botanist, and a member of the Academy of the Sciences.

Pierre Morin was born in Normandy in 1639. He came to New France and married Marie Martin at Port-Royal, Acadia in 1661. They eventually settled in Beaubassin, Quebec, where Pierre died in 1690. Pierre and Marie had at least twelve children together that carried on the family name of Morin. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Morrin family to the New World and Oceana


Immigration to New France was slow; therefore, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Morrin has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Morrin were
