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

The history of the Robicheau family goes back to the Medieval landscape of northwestern France, to a region known as Brittany. It is derived from the family living in Brittany.


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 Robicheau is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Robichon, Robichau, Robichaud, Robichauld, Robichault, Robicheau, Robichou, Robichoud and many more.

First found in Brittany, where they held a family seat in the seigniory of Trorolland, and were members of the aristocracy of that region.
