Dulong 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 Dulong is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Delong, DeLong, Delon, Long, Lelong, Longin, Longet, Longuet, Longuay, Longueuil, Longeau, Longueau, Longeaux, Longueaux, Longeaud, Longaud, Longeret, Longueret and many more.

The Great Migration



France was active as a cultural leader in the early 16th century. One particular area in which they lead was the exploration of the New World. The explorers, like Jacques Cartier in 1534, led the way to North America. Champlain, in 1608, made the first of twenty voyages to France to attract settlers and brought the first migrant in 1617. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec, and the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The family name Dulong has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Dulong were Jean Delon, who settled in Louisiana in 1720; M. de Longrais, who was living in Natchez, Louisiana in 1726; M. Delongrais, who settled in Louisiana in 1729.
