Lesueur History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The prestigious surname Lesueur comes from the region of Provence, in France. The surname Lesueur is of local origin, and is therefore a type of hereditary surname. Local surnames are derived either from an already existing place-name or from a local feature of the geography.


Early Origins of the Lesueur family


The surname Lesueur was first found in Provence, where this distinguished family held a family seat from ancient times.

In 1552, Antoine Sardo became the Deputy of Mons at Draguignan. Antoine Sarde was a clerk and deputy of Mons at Fayence and Tourettes in 1554 and at Barjols in 1574. Distinctive members of the family were Jean, Father Superior of Saint-Marcelin in 1614, and Antoine Sardi, Treasurer in 1620.

Throughout the centuries, this renowned family expanded, prospered and branched to various regions where they became prominent members of their respective communities. In Savoie for instance, Balthazard became the Chief Auditor in the Audit Office on October 19, 1622, and two noble members mentioned were, César on June 4, 1645 and Jean Antoine in 1665.

In recognition of their invaluable contributions in defending their country, several members of the family were granted titles, lands and letters patent certifying their nobility. Among those honored were the Lord Vincent Sarde of Candie in 1728 and the Count J. Sarde in 1731.
