Normandy is the region of ancient France from which the name lalond was derived. It comes from when the family lived at Landes in Normandy. However, the name Lalonde is adapted from a word indicating a house beside the moor.

lalond Early Origins



The surname lalond was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat from ancient times in a village and seigneurie in Seine-Inférieure in the arrondisement of Rouen. They were later elevated to the baronage in Normandy, to Lords in Brittany, Forez, Poitou and Quercy.

lalond Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name lalond is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Lalonde, Lalondes, La Londe, Lalande, La Lande, de Lalonde, des Lalondes, de Lalonde, de Lalande and many more.

Early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. Youths of 18 took fourteen-year-old girls for their wives. The fur trade was developed and attracted migrants, both noble and commoner from France. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. 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 Quebe c. 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. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada.
