Boudrot History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The present generation of the Boudrot family is only the most recent to bear a name that originated in that ancient area known as Languedoc. Their name comes from having lived in Languedoc, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages.

Early Origins of the Boudrot family

The surname Boudrot was first found in Languedoc, where the family was anciently established.

The members of the family also settled in other regions of France, where several of them distinguished themselves. Jean-Baptiste Boudrot was born in Tixey, in Côte-d'Or, in 1819, into a family of cultivators. He was ordained in 1843 and became a scholar. Among his writings were "L'hôtel-Dieu de Beaune" (1878) and "Le jugement dernier" (1875).

Jean Boudreau, born in 1643, son of Martin and Marie (née Foucault), travelled from Charente-Inferieure, France to Canada in 1667. He married Marie-Rose Vivien on 13th September 1673. His second marriage was in Charlesbourg on 13th December 1689 to Elizabeth Pivain. [1]

Boudrot 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 Boudrot, including Boudreau, Boudreaux, Boudrot, Boudros, Boudrault, Boudreault, Boudriaux, Boudret, Boudereau, Boudereaux, Bouderot, Bouderos, Bouderault, Boudereault, Boudreiaux, Bouderet and many more.
