Rober History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: French , German


The majestic country of France is the ancestral homeland of the distinguished surname Rober. The earliest hereditary surnames in France were either patronymic surnames, derived from the father's given name, or metronymic names, derived from the mother's given name. Rober is derived from the Old French personal name Robert, which is composed of the Germanic elements "hrod," meaning "bright," and "berht," meaning "bright," or "famous."


Early Origins of the Rober family


The surname Rober was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this renowned family has held a family seat since the Middle Ages.

The earliest and only member recorded from this family in Bourgogne was Lancelot Le Robert, Lord of la Tour de Pancy and part of Annoux, who became the Secretary of the Duke of Bourgogne, and successively owned Pontailler-sur-Saône, and the Lordships of Montréal and Châtel-Girard in 1445. He was assassinated by his wife. His descendants were recorded as possessors of the Lordship of Pancy in the seventeenth century.

Other notable descendants under this name were: Hubert (1733-1808), landscape painter; François (1737-1819), who was the King's Geographer and a politician; Pierre-François-Joseph (1763-1826), who was a member of the National Convention; Louis-Léopold (1794-1835), who was a talented Swiss painter; Louis-Benoît and Simon, who were Generals and were both honoured as Barons of the Empire in 1811.

Mathurin Robert, born in 1665, son of Pierre and Julienne (née Guilmette), travelled from Brittany (French: Bretagne) to Canada in the 17th century. After settling in Quebec he married Elizabeth Marcot, daughter of Nicolas and Martine (née Taurey), at Pointe-aux-Trembles on 30th July 1691. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
