Noble surnames, such as lafreniere, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name lafreniere, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Bourgoigne. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The lafreniere family originally lived in the village of Fresne, in the province of Bourgoigne.

lafreniere Early Origins



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