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

Noble surnames, such as Pariseau, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Pariseau, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Lorraine. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Pariseau family originally lived at the town of Paresse or Parez, in the Lorraine. Although one would at first assume that the name is derived from the city of Paris, evidence suggests that the names of both the town in the Lorraine and the French capital are derived from a Gaulish tribe called the Parisii.
