lapointe History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Périgord region of France is the ancient homeland of this noble name.


Early Origins of the lapointe family


The surname lapointe was first found in Périgord where they held a family seat in the seigneure of Tarn in the arrondissement of Lavaur, near Gaillac from early times.

By the 13th century they had branched eastward to Franche-Comté, Bourgogne and Champagne where they held estates. They flourished on their estates for several centuries intermarrying with other distinguished families of the area.

Nicolas Lapointe, son of Innocent and Vincente (née Reine), travelled from France to Canada in the 17th century. After arriving in Quebec he married Madeleine Despres, daughter of François and Madeleine, at Sainte-Famille-de-l'île-d'Orléans on 15th September 1670. Nicolas passed away on 10th December 1700 and was buried at Saint-Jean-de-l'île-d'Orléans. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
