The story of the name Beaurega begins in the French province of Limousin in medieval times. Beaurega was a name for someone who lived in Limousin. The name may also be a nickname for a person who lived in a place of exceptional beauty, for the name translates as "beautiful to look at." There is another possibility; the name may be a nickname, given to an exceptionally good looking person, or perhaps it could be a nickname given ironically. This makes this name polygenetic. A polygenetic name is a name that may have more than one origin and may have been adopted by several groups of people more or less independently of each other.

The Great Migration



France finally gave land incentives for 2,000 migrants during the 1700s. Early marriage was encouraged in New France, and youths of 18 took fourteen-year-old girls for their wives. The fur trade was developed and attracted migrants, both noble and commoner from France. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries, leaving French names scattered across the continent. The search for the Northwest passage continued. Migration from France to New France or Quebec, as it was now more popularly called, continued until 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebe c. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Beaurega were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Beaurega were André Jarret "sieur de Beauregard," lieutenant of Salière Company, Carignan Regiment, who arrived in Quebec in 1665, and married Marguerite Anthiaume in Montréal, in 1676.
