Migration of the Dessage family to the New World and Oceana
Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Jean-Baptiste Lesage who arrived in Quebec from Normandy in 1685; Jean-Baptiste Lesage arrived in Quebec from Anjou in 1761; Glande Lesage settled in Boston, Massachusetts in 1718.
The Dessage 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: Deus spes sapientis
Motto Translation: God is the hope of the wise
