Research Notes:

Note: The French identifier dit Labonté is identifying something about the person or person's family. It is not a (royal or noble) conveyance such as de or du. It is not an alias, nickname or last name which are incorrect English translations!

French "dit" or "dite" names were identifiers used by French families, that describe or distinguish the person based on a variety of possible definitions including French surname linage, maiden name genealogy, geography, guilds, master craftsmanship, military loyalties, seigneur relationships, military status ...etc etc etc

The Old World French never referred to dits as "last names", "nick names" or "aliases." Originally dit did not have a true English translation. .

Many French , Nouvelle France and Louisanne families carried their dit identification from their origins in France, Netherlands and Britain when they migrated to North America. Some Nouvelle France families established their own.

Eventually most dit and dite identifiers use were dropped as families became nationalized in North America and discontinued in France after the French Revolution. Baraboo-1 15:30, 22 February 2018 (EST)

Note: French women generally kept their given surname upon marriage during this period of time. Their children kept their father's surname. [1][2]Baraboo-1 15:36, 22 February 2018 (EST)
