Rose History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

It is thought that Rose is a surname that was taken on from a nickname for a person with a rosy complexion.

Early Origins of the Rose family

The surname Rose was first found in Limousin, where this illustrious family has held a family seat since ancient times.

Throughout the centuries, the family branched, prospered, and expanded to various provinces. Many members participated in the events of the times and were honored with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. As well, the Larose's formed several alliances with other noble families and in this way, titles and lands were exchanged according to the contracts. Distinctive members of this ancient family attended the Assembly of Notables at Bordeaux in 1789.

Blaise Larose, born in 1650, son of François and Marguerite (née Crevier), settled in New France in the 17th century. After his arrival in Quebec he married Hélène Cailly, born in 1656, daughter of Pierre and Marie (née Sosse), on 25th September 1673. [1]

Rose Spelling Variations

French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Rose is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Larose, Laroses, Larause, La Rose, La Rause, Rosse, De Rose, De Rosse and many more.

Rose migration to the United States

By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada.
