De larose History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

It is thought that De larose is a surname that was taken on from a nickname for a person with a rosy complexion.

Early Origins of the De larose family

The surname De larose was first found in Limousin, where this illustrious family has held a family seat since ancient times.

Throughout the centuries, the family branched, prospered, and expanded to various provinces. Many members participated in the events of the times and were honored with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. As well, the Larose's formed several alliances with other noble families and in this way, titles and lands were exchanged according to the contracts. Distinctive members of this ancient family attended the Assembly of Notables at Bordeaux in 1789.

Blaise Larose, born in 1650, son of François and Marguerite (née Crevier), settled in New France in the 17th century. After his arrival in Quebec he married Hélène Cailly, born in 1656, daughter of Pierre and Marie (née Sosse), on 25th September 1673. [1]

De larose 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 De larose, including Larose, Laroses, Larause, La Rose, La Rause, Rosse, De Rose, De Rosse and many more.

Migration of the De larose family

France finally gave land incentives for 2,000 migrants during the 1700s. 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 Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians 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 De larose were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name De larose were Philip Larose, aged 45; who settled in Louisiana with his wife, Claudine, in 1719.
