Loiseau History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



From the historical and enchanting region of Artois emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Loiseau family. Originally, people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Artois is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name.


Early Origins of the Loiseau family


The surname Loiseau was first found in Artois, a former province of northern France.

The members of this distinguished family also branched into other regions of France, especially to Tourraine and to Poitou. In Normandy they settled in D'Oissel, a town in Seine-Inférieure, in the district of Rouen; in Burgundy they settled in the region of Nivernais; in Maine they settled in D'Oisseau, a town in the department of Mayenne, in the district of Mayenne, and in Savoie they settled in De Loiseux, in the district of Chambéry. In Berry the family was in possession of the seigniories of Bouchet in Isle, of Champ and of Villars. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
