labrosse History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The surname labrosse is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came. labrosse is derived from the Old French word broce, meaning brushwood, and indicates that the original bearer lived near or in such a wooded area.

Early Origins of the labrosse family

The surname labrosse was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where the renowned family lived in early times.

The illustrious house of the Viscounts of Brosses comes from the Viscount of Géraud, cited in 1120. The Brosses of Escrot and Maleval owned land that had originally belonged to Claude, Lord of Maleval, who died in 1605. [1]

The Brosses of Bretagne (Brittany) are said to be a branch of the family originally coming from Jean-Jacques, a naval officer and knight of Saint Louis. [1]
