Show ContentsLebron History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of notable family names, including that of the distinguished Lebron family. Originally, the people in this region went by one (personal) name. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. These names then began to become "fixed" or hereditary between the generations. One of the types of names adopted as surnames were those derived from nicknames. Nicknames, or "eke-names," were an added name that generally reflected some physical characteristics or other attribute of the person that used the name. The Lebron surname derives from the French word "brun," meaning "brown"; and therefore was a nickname for someone who habitually dressed in the colour brown.

Early Origins of the Lebron family

The surname Lebron was first found in Poitou where this noble family held a family seat since ancient times.

Many members of this prominent family are listed in the ancient records as participants in the events surrounding the French Revolution. Distinctive among them were, François Le Brun who was elected as a Deputy of the Clergy to the Estates General on April 24, 1789; Marie Lucien Lebrun who was elected to the Legislature on September 2, 1791; and Benoit Lebrun who was elected as the representative at the Chambre of "Cent-Jours" on May 11, 1815.

Participating actively throughout the Revolution, Charles François Lebrun, Duke of Plaisance, was named the Inspector General of the domaines of the Crown and on March 29, 1789, he was elected as a Deputy to the Estates General. Once his term as Deputy was completed, he became the President of the Directoire of Seine et Oise. Charles was committed to Napoléon and in 1805, he was named the Governor General of the Republic of Gênes.

After the abdication of King Louis of Holland in 1810, Charles was granted the title of Lieutenant General of the Emperor and among his duties was the organization of all public services in Holland. However, after the invasion of Holland, he had to abandon his post and return to France where he remained faithful to Napoléon.

Noel Lebrun, born in 1669, son of Jean and Catherine of Boulogne, travelled from France to Canada in the 17th century. He married Anne Brochu, daughter of Jean and Nicole, at Saint-Jean-de-l'île-d'Orléans on 4th February 1697. [1]
