Lengloix Spelling Variations


French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Lengloix is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Langlois, Langloi, Langlais, Langlo, Langloys, Langois, L'Angloi, L'Anglais, L'Anglo, L'Angloys, L'Angloi, L'Anglois, Anglois, Angloi, Anglais, Anglo, Angloy and many more.

Migration of the Lengloix family to the New World and Oceana


In the 1700s, land incentives were finally given out by France to 2,000 migrants. Early marriage was encouraged in New France, and youths of 18 took fourteen-year-old girls for their wives. The fur trade was developed and attracted migrants, both noble and commoner from France. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries, leaving French names scattered across the continent. The search for the Northwest passage continued. Migration from France to New France or Quebec, as it was now more popularly called, continued until 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, Acadia were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Lengloix were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Lengloix 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.
