Raymond History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , French


The history of the Raymond name began during the Middle Ages in a region once known as Languedoc. The French name is derived from the personal name Raimund. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Dauzat, Albert, Morlet, Marie-Thérèse, Dictionaire Étymologique des Noms et Prénoms de France. Paris: Librairie Larousse, 1987. Print.
The personal name is derived from the Germanic elements "ragin," which means "counsel," or "advice," and "mund," which means "protection."


Early Origins of the Raymond family


The surname Raymond was first found in Languedoc where they held a family seat in the seigneurie of Toulouse, where they were distinguished members of the aristocracy of the region, and were later seated at Chantemerle, and d'Eoux.

This illustrious family had many branches in the south of France. By the 13th century they had branched to Languedoc at Brignon, and Modene, where they became the Comtes of Modene, and through their marriage with the family of Dutaillis became Counts of the Empire after the Revolution.

Another branch in Languedoc were the Marquis de Lasbordes et de St-Amans, and the Marquis de Sallegourde. Meanwhile they also established branches at Agénais where they became the Comtes de Raymond. The Viscounts Raymond intermarried with the O'Neills of Ireland.

Romain Raymond, son of Renaud and Catherine (née Daguspart), settled in Quebec in the 17th century. He married Marie-Angélique Ouellet, born on 5th November 1691, daughter of Pierre and Marie (née Gerbert), at Rivière-Ouelle on 21st January 1709. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Raymond 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 Raymond 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 Raymond were
