Robelot 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 Robelot is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Robillard, Robilard, Robillart, Robilart, Robilleau, Robileau, Robilliard, Robiliard, Robilliart, Robiliart, Robillot, Robilot, Robellot, Robelot and many more.

By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the French Acadian presence in the Maritimes had reached 500. The French founded Lower Canada, thus becoming one of the two great founding nations of Canada. The family name Robelot has made many distinguished contributions in France and New France to the world of science, culture, religion, and education. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Robelot were Claude Robillard who migrated from Brittany to Quebec in 1664.
