From the historical and enchanting region of France emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Lefrense family. Originally, the people of 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 be "fixed" or hereditary. One of the types of names adopted as surnames, were habitational names; those derived from place names. The Lefrense surname was likely first used by someone who held lands belonging to the French king, or perhaps for someone from the Île de France. A habitational name was often used for someone who had moved away from the place after which they were named. This name was sometimes used by soldiers in the feudal period. In French Canada, it was used as secondary "dit" name.

Early Origins of the Lefrense family


The surname Lefrense was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where this celebrated family held a family seat since ancient times.
