The Lenglenais family's name is derived from that coastal landscape of Medieval France known as Normandy. Their name originated with an early member who was a Norman resident of English extraction. The name Langlois refers to the Angles, a race who once inhabited England, and after whom the country is named. Rendered l'Anglais in modern French, the name essentially means the English.

Lenglenais Early Origins

The Great Migration



Immigration to New France was slow; therefore, early marriage was desperately encouraged amongst the immigrants. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebe c. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported to Louisiana. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The distinguished family name Lenglenais has made significant contributions to the culture, arts, sciences and religion of France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Lenglenais were Noël Langlois arrived in Quebec in 1634 from Normandy, he was one of the earliest settlers in Quebec; Jean-Baptiste Langlois (1668), Nicholas Langlois (1671), and Jacques Langois (1680), all arrived in Quebec from Normandy.
