Decossé Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous spelling alterations depending on the region and time it was used. The early development of the French language relied heavily on borrowing elements and grammar from 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 Decossé is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Cossé, de Cossé, Cosset, de Cosset, Cossette and many more.

The Great Migration



Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until it fell in 1759. 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 the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. In 1793, the remaining French in these provinces came under British rule. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Decossé were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Decossé were Pierre Cosse, who settled in Quebec in 1638; Daniel Cosset, who arrived in Quebec in 1655; Rene Cosset, who arrived in Quebec in 1656; Jaques Cossart, who came to New York, NY in 1664.
