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 Jettaut, including Jetté, Jeté, Jettet, Jetet, Jetter, Jeter, Jettot, Jetot, Jettau, Jetau, Jettaud, Jetaud, Jettaut, Jetaut, Jettaux, Jetaux, Jettauld, Jetauld, Jettault, Jetault, Jettaulx, Jetaulx, Jetteau, Jeteau, Jetteaux, Jeteaux, Jettat, Jetat, Jettas, Jetas, Jettard, Jetard, Jetton, Jeton, Jettin and many more.

By 1643 there were only about 300 people in Quebec. Since immigration was slow, 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 Quebec. 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 Jettaut 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 Jettaut were Nicolas Jetté, who married Catherine Giard in Montreal in 1690; Joseph Jetté, who married Louis Bouchard in Montreal in 1721; Nicolas Jetté, who married Catherine Richard in Longue-Pointe in 1728.
