Désautard 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 Désautard is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Desautels, Desotell, Desautel, Desautelle, des Autels, des Autelz, Desautelz, Désautars and many more.

The Great Migration



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 Quebe c. 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 Désautard 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 Désautard were Pierre Desautels, who married Marie Rémy in Montreal in 1666; Gilbert Desautels, who married Marie-Charlotte Étienne in Pte-aux-Trembles in 1708; Louis Desautels, who married Agathe Boudreau in Longue-Pointe in 1734.
