Crousette 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 Crousette, including Crozet, Crouzet, Croizet, Crouzette, Croizette, Cruisette, Crozette, Crozett, Cruiset, Crossier, Crozzet, Croizett, Crozier, Crouzettes, Croizettes, Cruisettes, Crozettes, Crousset, Crousett, Crousette, Croiset, Croisette, Crusier, Cruisette, Crozzier, Croizzet, Crouzzet, Crozzette, Crozzettes and many more.

The Great Migration



In the 1700s, land incentives were finally given out by France to 2,000 migrants. 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, Acadia 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 Crousette were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Crousette were James Crozer settled in Philadelphia in 1830; Adolphe Crozet, aged 22, settled in New York in 1820; and John B. M. Crozet who settled in Philadelphia in 1808..
