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

The Great Migration



In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebec. 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 Boudrow 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 Boudrow were Jean Boudreau, the son of Martin Boudreau and of Marie Foucault, of Saint-Porchaire, in Charente-Inférieure, who arrived in New France around 1667. In 1671 he settled in the village of Royal, where he married Marie-Rose Vivien in 1673. He became a widower and later married Élisabeth Pivain in Charlesbourg in 1689. Pierre Boudrot, Michel Boudrot, Amant Boudrot, Joseph Boudrot and his wife, Marie, and Remis Boudreaux all arrived in Maryland in 1763. Étienne Boudreault settled Quebec, where he was a solicitor from 1817 to 1825.
