Etiennot History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The noble French surname Etiennot was originally derived from the Greek name "Stephanos," meaning "crown." The Norman French form of this name was a popular personal name before the advent of surnames, in large part due to the Saint Stephanus.
Early Origins of the Etiennot family
The surname Etiennot was first found in the northern region of Lorraine and in the commune of Equennes in the Somme department, where they had many lands and estates. 
They were granted nobility in the early 17th century, and awarded a coat of arms in 1620. As the family grew in prominence within Lorraine, branches spread to other regions of France, most notably to the southern area of Provence. These newly established branches of the Etiennot family were eventually granted titles of nobility and a new coat of arms. Several individuals bearing the surname Etiennot were knighted and were prominent figures throughout French history.
Philippe Etienne, born in 1631, son of Mathurin and Louise, was a french carpenter that travelled from France to Canada in the 17th century. After arriving in the province of Quebec he married Marie Vien, daughter of Étienne and Marie, at Trois-Rivières on 26th January 1655. Philippe married again to Marie Gravois at Trois-Rivières on 3rd November 1666.
