lasalle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the lasalle family

The surname lasalle was first found in Auvergne, a historic province in south-central France where this distinguished family held a family seat at Montservier, Pélussieu, and Puygermand, and were also members of the aristocracy of that region.

The main line of the family at Pélussieu were elevated to the nobility as the Comtes de Pélussieu and the Marquis de Rochemaure. Another line seated at Auvergne emerged as the Marquis de la Sallé. Junior lines of this family settled in Brittany, Poitou, Bourgogne, Provence, and Languedoc.

Notables of this family were: Antoine de Lasale, French writer, 1386-1462; Robert Cavelier, sieur de La Salle, 1640-1687, explorer, who descended the Mississippi and named the region of its delta Louisiana, in honor Louis XIV; Rene Lasalle, French explorer born 1643 and died in Louisiana in 1687; Comte Antoine Lasalle, French General, 1775-1809.

Jean LaSalle, born in 1672, son of Jean and Marie, was a French soldier for M. De Lormier, that travelled from France to the New World in the 17th century. After arriving in Canada he married Louise Jousset, daughter of Mathurin and Catherine, at Montreal, Quebec on 9th December 1698. [1]
