Gabriele Spelling Variations



Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Gabriele, including Gabriaut, Gabriau, Gabriault, Gabriel, Gabriele, Gabriell, Gabrielle, Gabrel, Gabrelle, Le Gabriel and many more.

The Great Migration



In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebe c. Migration was slow. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year 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 Gabriele 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 Gabriele were Thomas Gabriell who arrived in Trinity Harbour in Newfoundland in 1675; and settled in Heart's Content in 1681; Andre Gabriel settled in Codroy and Rivers in 1871.
