Thibaut History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The prestigious French surname Thibaut is a proud sign of a rich and dynamic ancestry.The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common French surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin. They derive from the language of the Visigoths, who controlled France between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. The surname Thibaut was originally derived from the Old French personal name of Theobald, meaning bold or brave. [1]

Early Origins of the Thibaut family

The surname Thibaut was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France where they held a family seat and functioned as officers of the mounted constabulary (Maréchaussés) of Bourgogne and Bresse. The name belonged to a chivalrous house dating back to the year 1400, located in the region of Berry. A gentleman from the King's chamber and three ladies established nobility on 26th September 1694, 11th June 1704, and 30th July 1706. Tibbos Hill was a settlement (now known as Wreck Cove) located in the Burin-Burgeo District, south west of Belleoram, Newfoundland. [2]

Pierre Thibaut, born in 1664, was a French soldier that travelled from Agen, Gascogne to Canada in the 17th century. On 24th November 1687 he married Catherine Baudry. Pierre died in Sault-au-Récollet, Quebec on 7th January 1740.

He married Jeanne Terriot in Port-Royal, Acadia in 1660 and together they had fourteen children, six sons and eight daughters. Their sons, Pierre, Jean, Antoine, Pierre, Michel, and Claude all married and carried on the family name of Thibodeau in Canada. Pierre was the founder of Chipody, Acadia, now known as Shepody, New Brunswick. He passed away while working at his mill, Pree-Ronde, on 26th December 1704.
