Barbeau Name Variants:

In North America since approximately 1600 the Barbeau name includes the following variants: Barbeau, Barbot, Barbeaux. (Baraboo, Barboo are Americanized versions.) (see :

In North America the French dit names that identified various Barbeau family lines include: (Dit)(Dite), Boisdore, Bois-Dore, Poitevin, LaForest, LaForet, Lafontaine. French dit names were discontinued in France after the French Revolution and were discontinued in North America when the family became nationalized, (American, British, Canadian etc) after Nouvelle France and (French, Spanish) Louisanne. )

In North America the Barbeau surname is often represented as Barbot especially in the dit Boisdore family line during 1600-1750 circa in Nouvelle France.

Surname variants include: Barbeau, Barbot, Barbo . Barbeau and Barbot sound the same pronounced in French. Nouvelle France Parish references generally did not have family signatures to confirm the recorded and often variable spelling information.

It often depended on the French fluency of the person and period when transcribed, when the transcriptions took place, (ie. Tanguay) and who initially wrote the hand written Catholic documents.(Scribe, Priest)

Families rarely edited the catholic registers either without access or they lacked the abilities to read or write. Nouvelle France Jesuits, Sulpicians or the Recollet translated names differently depending on their language use, what name they heard, their regional French dialect and sometimes they seemed to "make up the spelling."

When researching the variants of the Barbeau name in North America it is prudent to research both ancestors and descendants for clues. It also helps to research other documents. (Civil, Business, Land, Journals etc etc) It is an advantage in detail whenever research discovers the French dit identification with the given name.

In Europe and primarily France the Barbeau names includes the following variants from approximately 1100 forward : Barbeau, Barbeaux, Barbot, Barbault, Barbaud, Barbaux, Barbu. (Note: Barbe is often sited as a variant however research has not shown that to be correct.) Baraboo-1 18:27, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

In Europe primarily France and Netherlands, (Belgica Regia, the "Royal Netherlands") the Barbeau, Barbeaux, Barbot names often included the following French dit, dite names : Bois-dore, Bois Dor, Boisdore, LaForest, LaForet, Bruyere, Burran, Bois-Barbeau, Bois-Barbot, Poitevin.

Barbeau, Barbot, Barbaud, Barbault , Barbaux, and Barbeaux have the same sound when French pronounced. [1] [2]

Religious Affiliations

The Barbeau, Barbeaux, Barbaud and Barbot families researched from circa 1200 in France to to North America are predominately Catholic. During the Huguenot reformation in France many Barbeau families remained Catholic with some Barbeau families becoming protestant. The Protestant Barbeau families during the reformation fled to England, Nouvelle France and later to the Colonial America. Some Protestant Barbeau families changed their last name to Barbot during that time.

Michael Barbeau provides an excellent resource for understanding the protestant Huguenot history . " Qui suis-je ?

Barbeau, nom communément donné à différentes espèces de poissons et notamment au barbeau commun (Barbus barbus) " Fish described as barbels by English-speaking people may not be known as barbels in their native country, although the root of the word may be similar. For instance, the Mediterranean barbel (Barbus meridionalis) is known as barbeau méridional or barbeau truité in France, but also as drogan, durgan, tourgan, turquan and truitat." [5][6][7]

Barbeau Cornflower Porcelain Design

The design of cornflower sprigs, in French “Barbeau,” originated with pieces made for Queen Marie Antoinette by the Sevres factory. The underplate marked “M” for Monsieur the royal patron who later became King Louis XVIII of France.

The Barbeau design remains in effect today.

The decor with cornflowers called ‘’ au barbeau ‘’,very popular during the 18th century was one of the Queen Marie-Antoinette’s favorites.

The French flower may have originally been attributed to Jean-Louis Barbeau de la Bruyère although a confirmation is needed. Baraboo-1 19:42, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

Barbeau Michigan United States

Barbeau, ville américaine du Michigan ; "Barbeu is located in the Eastern Upper Peninsula on the St. Mary's River." [12] The city was named for Pierre Barbeau , "Peter B. Barbeau was a prominent merchant and community leader in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, during the nineteenth century. He was born June 29, 1800, in LaPrairie, Quebec, and died in the Sault on October 17, 1882." [13]

Abbaye de Barbeau

Abbaye de Barbeau, abbaye française, au sud-est de Melun ; "Barbeau Abbey was founded in 1147 by King Louis VII of France on the banks of the Seine, whence the original name Seine-Port, or Sequanae Portus, in Latin. It was transferred to its present site in 1156. The present name is supposedly derived from the French word for barbel, which is also depicted in the abbey's arms. According to the foundation legend a barbel was fished out of the Seine and found to contain a ring mounted with a precious stone that was lost by Saint Loup as he crossed the river, the sale of which raised the funds to build the monastery.

In 1180 Louis VII was buried in the abbey. His bones were transferred to St. Denis' Abbey in 1817." [14][15]

Tour Barbeau, une des tours de l'ancienne enceinte de Philippe-Auguste à Paris

" The Barbeau tower

Elle était située à l'emplacement actuel du 32, quai des Célestins.

Comme les autres tours du coin de l'enceinte, elle faisait 25 m de haut et 10 m de diamètre.

La tour n'existe plus en 1609 (plan de Vassalieu, 1609).

No 32, quai des Célestins : borne de Paris signalant l'emplacement de cette ancienne tour. Elle était reliée à la tour Loriaux, située dans une île du même nom (aujourd'hui disparue) au milieu du fleuve, et elle-même reliée au château de la Tournelle, sur la rive gauche, par des chaînes qui reposaient sur des radeaux amarrés à des pieux profondément enfoncés dans le fleuve.

Lorsque Charles V décide au xive siècle la construction de nouveaux remparts extérieurs afin d’assurer la sécurité des quartiers neufs de la ville marchande, dont l’expansion économique et démographique avait été rapide, la tour Barbeau est restaurée et en constitue l’appui à l'extrémité d'un mur de fortification construit vers 1370 le long de la Seine à partir de la tour de Billy.

Au xvie siècle, le jeu de paume de la Croix-Noire s’établit à cet endroit, adossé au soubassement de la muraille. Molière à ses débuts y installe son illustre théâtre de décembre 1644 à août 1645.

Devenue inutile, elle est détruite au xviie siècle. De nos jours, une borne de Paris sise au 32, quai des Célestins en rappelle l'existence." [16][17][18]

Barbeau dit Boisdore history at French Mobile, Pearl River, Bay St. Louis and New Orleans 1719 -

Excerpts: " Jean Claude Favre, a new British subject from Mobile, married Marguerite Wiltz (b 1740, d7/28/1805) on June 7, 1759. She was the daughter of Marie Anne Colon. Her sister Marguerite Colon married Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdore, a Canadian on October 13, 1747. Together with the Favres, members of the Colon and Boisdore families would be the earliest non-Native settlers of the East Pearl River region of Hancock County. Apparently relations between the Favres and Boisdores were not always cordial as seen in a lawsuit brought in 1776 by Luis Boisdore versus Jean Favre. . Louis Boisdore filed the suit against Jean Favre in New Orleans over a slave named “Luison.” This case continued until 1783 when Widow Favre settles with Boisdore. Succession suit indicates that Jean Claude died around 1782. Marguerite Wiltz died 7/28/1802 at 65 (cf. LHQ October 1928, vol. II, no. 4: 668; St. Louis Cathedral Record of Interments (1793-1803) page 115 Act 1019) (11).(This would seem to be more authoritative than above, as record cutting off at 1803 could not include her as dying in 1805, as above)"

" The Boisdore family received their deed in Hancock County in 1781.5 They were related through marriage to the Collon family, and the Favres. Like many French settlers they moved from Mobile to New Orleans to escape the British occupation of West Florida that began in 1763. They took possession of the region upon the defeat of Great Britain and the return of Spanish rule. The name Boisdore still appears on topographic maps, bayous, and in some descriptions of the Ancient Earthwork, also known as the Boisdore Fortification. Many of the early historical characters that would inhabit southwest Hancock County are mentioned in the deed transaction of Charles Souvigny and John Baptiste Roussere (or Rousseve). Among them were Bienville, Diron D’Artaguette, LaLande, Boisdore, Meminger and Collon. We will meet each one and more as we progress through our history."

"JOSEPH BARBEAU DIT BOISDORE AND LOUIS BARBANT BOISDORE The Boisdore claim in southernmost Hancock County was contested for 67 years. The Boisdores were apparently old family with properties in Mobile and New Orleans.20

There is evidence in the Rousseve and Souvigny deeds from 1788 that Joseph Barbant de Boisdore had attained the deed to the land owned by Charles Marie LaLande. There is no mention of a date. Joseph Barbeau dit Boisdore was most likely the father of Luis, John and Anthony 21. He married the sister of Marguerite Wiltz, wife of Jean Claude and mother to Simon Favre, in 1747. But possibly only briefly since two years later there is a record of a marriage contract of Joseph Barland called Boisdore, native of Mobile, and Mary Jean Deslandis, widow of Chas. Rochon 22 in 1749 (New Orleans Genesis, vol. 8; 326-334)

Luis Boisdore was given land by Miro at Mosquitto Village, in fact most of the land south of Philip Saucier extending to Bay St. Louis (April 1, 1783). Luis also purchased the plantation of Baptiste Saucier, 12 February 1781, which he later transferred to John Chastang for four cows and their calves 7 October 1784.

Joseph may have moved to New Orleans after leaving his plantation to his sons, possibly in advance of the British occupation of West Florida. He (or someone with his name) may be the one living with his wife on the left side of St. Ursulle St. in New Orleans in 1778. At that time Joseph Boisdore and his wife were both over 49 years old, had 5 slaves, and no occupation listed. Ten years earlier Joseph was mentioned in a lawsuit in 1768 (Court case Joseph Boisdore versus Jean Villanave, 1768. In NO Genesis vol. 3, January 1964, no. 9).

The Boisdore family was clearly more allied with the Spanish than the British. When Spain re-occupied Hancock County in 1781, prior French interests were restored. Luis Boisdore, probably the son of Joseph, was granted claim to what was his father’s original claim in the southwest portion of Hancock County. The area granted was known as Achoucoupoulous and stretched from Bayou of Muschettoe Village to Phillip Saucier, and had been formerly inhabited by Mr. Lussen (American State Papers 1789-1809, Public Lands 1, Class VIII, page 6). Boisdore wanted to use the land for a plantation and a vacherie or cow pen.

There are at least two Luis Boisdores: The one to whom Governor Estevan Miro granted a tract of land along the Gulf Coast from Bayou of Mosquito Village (presently Mulatto Bayou) to Bay St. Louis on April 1, 1783 was probably Louis Boisdore, a gunsmith from New Orleans (Swanson n.d.; page 286, Plat). The other Louis or Luis was Louis Barbant Boisdore, merchant of New Orleans. We find that John and Anthony, his brothers, sell the plantation inherited from his father in St. Louis, north of Mobile 19 July 1759. Apparently the same year his father left his plantation to his sons, Luis married (Marriage Contract of Louis Barband Boisdore widower of Marie M. Devert, 1759, (NO Genesis vol. 3, January 1964, no. 9).

Luis must have re-married, as after his death in 1788, his widow Marguerite Doussin petitioned both the Spanish and American for confirmation of the Boisdore claim. The same Luis was probably a militiaman in New Orleans in 1770 (From Robichaux, 1973:12). In a document dated 12 September 1770 we read of the Four Companies of militia of New Orleans. Fusiliers (Fourth Company) and that Luis Boisdore lived in House no. 11, Rear of City: Louis Boisdore. Total 324 signed by O’Reilly. On December 31, 1779, Luis Boisdore is mentioned as city steward in New Orleans (Kuntz Collection, Tulane 1981).

The other Luis Boisdore was dead well before the land claims were confirmed. Luis Boisdore’ 23, (possibly a brother of Joseph’s) was a sergeant was killed during an ambush by a party of Chickasaws Indians on August 1, 1754. He fell near Natchez under the impetuous leadership of Sieur de La Morliere. This lieutenant disregarded the advice of the Ofogoulas Indians, members of the party, who were attempting to recover four had kidnapped women. The event is vividly described in official correspondence:

La Morliere “Made impatient by the delay and by the behavior of the Indians in such a case, did not wait for the agreed signal to present himself with his troops. The enemies, hidden in the reeds, singled them out and fired their volley at them. Sieur de La Morliere was the first to be killed by several gunshots. The Indians of our party, seeing their precautions made useless, decamped each in his own direction. The soldiers held out for some time, notably the man named Boisdors, sargeant, who was overwhelmed by numbers, covered with wounds. After the most stubborn resistance and after having used up all his ammunition [he] sold the rest of his life for knife blows.” 24

Clealry boisdore was a prominent citizen in the area. The bayou presently called Mulatto is often also called Bayou Boisdore as seen in documents dated from 1788 and 1828 respectively. (American State Papers, Public Lands, Vol. V, :784-5; Swanson, 1988). It may be that the Boisdores never moved on the land, even though Boisdore is credited with building the “Claiborne House” in 1800. Luis apparently died in 1788 (Succession of Louis Boisdore, 1788; NO Genesis, no. 14, 124-132) and his widow would attempt, with marginal success to confirm the original deed first with the Spanish authorities and after with the US officials. Augustin Mallet is mentioned as the caretaker of the Boisdore claim, in the original deed."

" April 26, 1783, Governor Estevan Miro granted Louis Boisdore of New Orleans a tract of land stretching along the Gulf Coast from Bayou of Mosquito Village (today Mulatto Bayou) to Bay. St Louis. Area was called Achoucoupoulous; Boisdore wanted to use it as for a plantation and a vacherie; he noted land was vacant, "formerly inhabited by Mrs. Lucer." Begin at the plantation of Philip Saucier to the Bayou Of Mosquito Village, with a depth as far as the Pearl River (1700-1783) Pintado Papers, Book X- Z: 156-70. Boisdore widow, Marguerite Doussin, applied for confirmation of grant to Miro on April 26, 1803. Augustin Mallette living on land to preserve rights of the family; no surveys done due to insects and heat. Claims that land was in cultivation 1788-1828. In 1810, Mr. Joseph Baker apparently owned the property; under a Spanish permit granted June 13, 1810 the land is described as cultivated between April 1810 and March 1813 (American State Papers vol.3, #18). Mulatto Bayou (American State Papers vol. 3 1815-1824)

Family (Crests) Armorial s

This Barbeau Crest is described in various official French Documents Circa 1600. The fish represents Barbeau. " (fr) D'or à trois roses de gueules. The origin of the roses is unknown, there are a number of explanations offered : - the roses allude to the Roman name of the town Gratianopolis, the town of Grace, which was founded by the Emperor Gratian, or from the idea that roses grew from grains nobles. - the roses symbolise three martyrs: Saint Vincent, Saint André and Saint Jean-Baptiste. - the roses are the three powers in the city, the consuls, the Ddauphin or the mayor. - the roses are said to date from 1447, when the future Louis XI came to Grenoble, where he stayed for nine years as dauphin. On his arrival the nobles of the city offered him a bouquet of dog roses." The Crest suggests the relationship between Barbeau and Dauphine ( Probable: Roi and Geography) " The Dauphine region in France is physiographically the region comprises the westernmost outliers of the Alps and borders the highest portions of the Alps in France, just east of Grenoble. It borders the Rhône River valley on the west and Provence to the south." [25][26]

  • François Barbeau, costume designer, theatre director, artistic director, set designer (b at Montréal 20 July 1935). François Barbeau's career in the Québec theatre rests not only on flawless knowledge of fashion, cut, and character creation, but also on the use and even the design of material. Barbeau, in collaboration with many artisans, was an acknowledged master in fabric restoration. [32]
  • Charles Marius Barbeau, CC, FRSC, anthropologist, ethnologist, folklorist, ethnomusicologist (born 5 March 1883 in Ste-Marie-de-Beauce, QC; died 27 February 1969 in Ottawa, ON).

Barbeau was the founder of professional folklore studies in Canada and was one of the first collectors of folk songs (courtesy Library and Archives Canada/C-34447). [33]

  • Marcel Barbeau is firstly an abstract expressionist and an action painting artist (1946-1957 and 1971-1980), whose paintings and sculptures become the material continuation of instinctual movement, which he superposes until formal achievement is reached. He’s thus pioneer of new pictural approaches, such as all over image, the cropping of composition by means of cutting a larger work or the association of several gestural techniques: scraping, marks, spots, drippings... His kinetic works (1959-1966) as well suggest the expression of movement, until it becomes incantatory hallucination. While adopting a minimalist approach in his quest for purity (19601963 and 1968-1971), he rejects its theoretical and formal constraints, to which he never totally submits. Let it be in his paintings, drawings or sculptures, his most simple compositions or most stripped forms – from the abstract figures that inhabits them – suggest movement, time passing by, a future to come. In that regard, his art constantly stands on the fringe of the aesthetic movements to which he relates to, imposing to the latter his own questionings, his own singular approach.[34][35]
  • Adrienne Jo Barbeau (born June 11, 1945) is an American actress, singer and the author of three books. Barbeau came to prominence in the 1970s as Broadway's original Rizzo in the musical Grease, and as Carol Traynor, the divorced daughter of Maude Findlay (played by Beatrice Arthur) on the sitcom Maude (1972–1978).[1] In 1980 she began appearing in horror and science fiction films, including The Fog (1980), Creepshow (1982), Swamp Thing (1982) and Escape from New York (1981). Other films included: Back to School (1986) and Argo (2012). During the 1990s, she became known for providing the voice of Catwoman on Batman: The Animated Series (1992–1995), and subsequent Batman cartoon series. In the 2000s, she appeared on the HBO series Carnivàle as Ruthie the snake dancer. In 2020, she appeared on the Netflix series AJ and the Queen with RuPaul.[36]
