Origins Available: English, French, Italian


The French name Cardinale has a history dating as far back as the Middle Ages. This history is intrinsically entwined with that region known as Languedoc, for it was derived from when the Cardinale family lived in Languedoc. But the name may have been of nickname origin too. In this case, it may have been given to someone who habitually wore red, the color of the vestments worn by cardinals in the Roman Catholic Church.

Cardinale Early Origins



The surname Cardinale was first found in Languedoc, where the family held a family seat from very early times.

The Great Migration



French settlers came early to North American, following in the wake of the explorers, and creating New France. Quebec City, founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain is said to have been the first American site founded as a permanent settlement, rather than as just a commercial outpost. But emigration was slow, in 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 French people in Quebec, and by 1663, when the region was officially made The Royal Colony of New France, by Louis XIV, there still only around 500 settlers. Over 2,000 would arrive during the next decade. Early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. Youths of 18 took fourteen-year-old girls for their wives. The fur trade was developed and attracted immigrants, both noble and commoner from France. By 1675, there were around 7000 French in the colony, and by that 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. Despite the loss of the Colony to England, the French people flourished in Lower Canada. Among settlers to North America of the Cardinale surname were Thomas Cardinall settled in America in 1754; Jean Cardinal married Marie-Cayer at Pointe-Claire, Québec in 1721; François-Marie Cardinal, son of Pierre and Marie Matou, married Thérèse Brunet, widow of J.B. Parant in 1729 at Pointe-Claire, Québec.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: L'âme et L'honneur
Motto Translation: My Soul and Honor
