Letellier History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Of all the French names to come from Normandy, Letellier is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Normandy.


Early Origins of the Letellier family


The surname Letellier was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat at St. Victor and Hauterocque as members of the aristocracy of that region. The name was derived from the word "telier," and denoted a tradesman of a linen weaver. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Letellier Spelling Variations


French surnames were subject to numerous spelling alterations depending on the region and time it was used.

The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada.
