Thanks for adding this, Erin. We need to be clear that not all pre-1700 profiles should follow the naming conventions of the EuroAristo project. My husband's Devoe ancestors were Huguenots, originally de Veaux, and not aristocrats as far as we know. I'd guess that 90-something per cent of them retained the "de" as part of their name either with or without space, either capitalizing the V or not, becoming DeVeau, Devoe, Devaux etc. They fled France before 1700, mostly.
