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 lacouteur, including Couture, Cousture, Coudure, Couturas, Couturat, Coutureau, Couturaud, Couturot, Couturier, Couturié, Couturière, Lecouturier, Lecouturié, Coudurier, Coudurié, Coudurière, Lecoudurier, Lecoudurié, Cousturier, Cousturié, Cousturière, Lecousturier, Lecousturié and many more.

Migration of the lacouteur family to the New World and Oceana

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 lacouteur were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name lacouteur were Jeanne Couturier, who settled in New York State in 1700-01; Frederick Couturier, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1840; Jacob and Louis Couturier, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1860..
