does the name "Lalonde" mean?
Our official family cyber-historian Eric Lalonde says:
Lalonde is a parish of the lower Seine of the Rouen arrondissement.
"Londe" means forest, thus "de la Londe" means "of the forest." There
is a Lalonde forest in France and, in fact, the Canadian Army regiments
of Maisonneuve and Mont-Royal took part in a battle there as part of
the liberation of France in late August and early September 1944. This
area is not far from the town Rouen where Jean comes from.
Lalonde and LaLonde?
"The spelling of the Lalonde name has been with only one capital L
here in Quebec. It appears that the second capital L has been added
US. I have only heard of Lalondes with two capital L's from the US.
I guess if we searched the records in Michigan where the Lalondes
went to the US we might find where the change happened. It probably
was some recording clerk who changed the spelling on a birth certificate
and it continued from there."
