Robitalle Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by 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 Robitalle is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Robitaille, Robital, Robitail, Robitaile, Robitale and many more.

The Great Migration



In 1643, 109 years after the first landings by Cartier, there were only about 300 people in Quebec. Migration was slow. The fur trade attracted migrants, both noble and commoner. 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 Robitalle 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 Robitalle were Joseph Robitaille, who was enumerated in the censure of the 25 of May, 1700; at Biloxi; Jean Rondeau, a carpenter, who lived on Bourbon street with his wife and who was included in the censure of 1727 of New-Orleans.
