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

Noailles Early Origins



The surname Noailles was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat at Noailles, and the scion of the family was Robert Noel. This knight, Robert Noel, accompanied William, Duke of Normandy, in his conquest of England in 1066 and was granted many lands, including those of Ellenhall, Wiverstone, Podmore and Milnese. Robert, Lord of Ellenhall became Lord of Gainsborough which was granted to him by King Henry I, King of both England and Normandy.

Noailles Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous spelling alterations depending on the region and time it was used. The early development of the French language relied heavily on borrowing elements and grammar from 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 Noailles is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Noell, Noelle, Noel, Noël, Noailles, Noe, Noue, de Noel and many more.

The Great Migration



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 Quebe c. 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 Noailles were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Noailles were François Noel who arrived in Quebec in 1657 from Poitou; Pierre Noel arrived in Quebec in 1758 from Artois, in the north-east of France; Noel Noel arrived in Quebec in 1740 from Ile-de-France.
