Where did the French Mallette family come from? What is the French Mallette family crest and coat of arms? When did the Mallette family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Mallette family history?


Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Mallette, including Malo, Mallo, Malod, Mallod, Malot, Mallot, Malou, Mallou, Maloux, Malloux, Malon, Mallon, Malonne, Mallonne, Malée, Mallée, Mallee, Malet, Mallet, Malette, Mallette, Malouet and many more.

First found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where the family held a family seat since ancient times.

Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until it fell in 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, the Acadians 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. In 1793, the remaining French in these provinces came under British rule. 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 Mallette were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France.
