Desvoycins Spelling Variations


French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Desvoycins is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Voisins, Voisin, Voysin, Voisine, Voysins, Voisyn, Voisyns, Voycins, Voicins, Voycine, Voycins, Voicyn, Voicyns, Les Voisins, Les Voisines, Les Voisyns, Les Voycins, Les Voicyns, Les Voycins, Les Voicins, Les Voycines, Le Voisin, Le Voysin, La Voisine, Le Voisyn, Le Voicyn, La Voycine, Vesine, Vésine, Vezine, Vézine, Vézina and many more.

Migration of the Desvoycins family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Desvoycins family to the New World and Oceana


Immigration to New France was slow; therefore, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. 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 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Desvoycins has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Desvoycins were François Vésinat, who married Jeanne Lemarié in Château-Richer in 1670; Pierre Voisin, who settled in Louisiana in 1719; Jacques Vésinat, who married Marie-Catherine Routier in Lorette in 1729.

The Desvoycins Motto

The Desvoycins 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: Pro fide
Motto Translation: For faith.
