Desmarets History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Desmarets surname is a habitational name derived from any of several places named with the Old French words "mareis" or "maresc", meaning "marsh".


Early Origins of the Desmarets family


The surname Desmarets was first found in Cambray, Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where ancestors of the family belonged to the house of Bousis. According to Arthurian legend, Sir Hector de Maris (or Ector de Maris), was a Knight of the Round Table, younger half-brother of Lancelot and the natural son of King Ban of Benwick and the Lady de Maris.

René Desmarais, son of Jean and Jeanne (née Brassard), travelled from Poitou, France to the New World in the 17th century. He married Jeanne Blondeau at Trois-Rivières, Quebec on 16th November 1671. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
