launcelot History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the launcelot family

The surname launcelot was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

Migration of the launcelot family to the New World and Oceana

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name launcelot arrived in North America very early: Lucien Lancelot, aged 25, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1919; Marie Lancelot, aged 23, who arrived at Ellis Island from France, in 1919; Marie Louise Lancelot, aged 30, who arrived at Ellis Island from France, in 1919.
