The story of the name Beaureguarde begins in the French province of Limousin in medieval times. Beaureguarde 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.

Migration of the Beaureguarde 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 Beaureguarde 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 Beaureguarde 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.
