Of all the French names to come from that northwestern peninsula of France known as Brittany, Aubein is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the town of Aubin, in the province of Brittany.

Aubein Early Origins



The surname Aubein was first found in Brittany, in the north-western part of France where one can trace their origin to ancient Gaul and it is recorded in the form of Albinus as early as the year 538, in the city of Angers, capital of the former province of Anjou.

Aubein Spelling Variations



Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Aubein, including Aubin, Aubain, Aubing, Aubein, Aubins, Aublin, Aubbin, Aubbain, Aubbing, Aubbein, Aubbins, Aubblin, Saint-Aubin, St-Aubin, St. Aubin, Obin, Obain, Oblin, Obing, Obein, Obbin, Obbain, Obblin, Obbing, Obbein, d'Aubin, d'Aubain, d'Aubing, d'Aubein and many more.

The Great Migration



In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebe c. Migration was slow. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 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. The family name Aubein has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Aubein were George Aubin, who settled in Philadelphia in 1874; Jacob Auby, who settled in Philadelphia in 1741; Maria Margreta Daubin, who settled in Philadelphia in 1795.
