Looking for history on my mothers side. Her maiden name is Margaret Fleurette Seguin born March 19,1933 in Maniwaki, Que. Her parents names were Rose (born approx. 1880`s 1890`s) and Joseph (D.O.B unknown). Both were born and died in Quebec (Maniwaki).Any info about them would be helpful in my search about my family history.

Subject: Seguin translation

Now we know why you like the Germans so much.
Your name is from a German origin.


This family name is French-Provencal (Provence is an area of the South
of France). This is originally patronymic, it means that it belongs to a
category of names derived from the father's first name, of the first
carrier of this family name. In this case, le name Seguin is exactly
the le same as the French first name Seguin.

In general, the last name Seguin imply that its first carrier was a
descendant of a man which first name was Seguin.
Seguin is from Germanic origin, formed of 2 different elements : the
word "sigi" which means victory, and "wine" which means friend.
so you can simply translate the name Seguin to "victory friend".

The most common variations of the name are Segui, Seguis, and the
forms "diminutives "(which is a French word to say make the name familiar
cute) dinimutives Seguineau, Seguignol and Seguigniol. All this names
originated in the Provence area, in the South of France.
Famous Seguin are: Marc Seguin, French Ingener, born at Annonay
(1786-1875), who invented the suspended bridge (1824), also invented
the tubular boiler ? (1827), also, in the "l'Armorial General Rietstap"
part of the french aristocratic families is registered a Seguin family
which founded it's ancestral "house" at Lyonnays. we also found reference
to a Seguin family at Fores, and an other citizen of Gascogne. the
descendants of this last one founded the "House of Guyenne. More research are in
progress, because the name appears earlier than the data mantionned
in this document. There is a town named Seguin in Texas, it was named to
honor a Colonel Juan Seguin, hero os the Texan revolution. An other
famous Seguin is a french psychiatri Edouard Seguin (1812-1880).

Surnames: Seguin Laderoute
I have an Albert Seguin in my database born abt. that time to a Jean Baptiste Seguin Laderoute and an Emma Seguin Laderoute (yes, Seguin Laderoute is her maiden name too). This Seguin family is from Quebec to Ogdensburg NY.

Their children were Desolina "Lena" Louise b. 11/11/1885, Joseph Ozada, Cleopha, Adian, Amelia Grace Alma, Edward, Oscar, William, Elizabeth, and Albert. I don't have birthdates on thes other children but safe to say Albert is born in the right time frame to possibly be your Albert.

The parents of Albert's father Jean Bap. are Eustache Seguin and Philomene (Fanny) Duquette. The parents of Emma Seguin, Albert's mother, are Abraham Seguin Laderoute and Melanie ??? unknown surname possibly Seguin too.

Abraham and Melanie's daughter Marie Mathilde Seguin Laderoute married Francis William Belanger at my family church, Notre Dame RC Church, Ogdensburg, NY. That is how I come to have this Seguin family in my database. My aunt married a Seguin, Seguin's were a part of our family since the early 1800's.

Some of these Seguins also went by Laderoute, Sayers, Sayer, Sears, and Sawyer at times. I would look for those names if you are at a brick wall. Some moved to Tonawanda, NY, where I now live, and some later went to Detroit. My aunt and her husband went to Rose de Lima outside Ottawa. They used the name Seguin, Sayers, and Laderoute at various times which is why it took me forever to find them. Laderoute is their "dit" name.

If this doesn't help you, I hope it helps someone!! Seguin is a very common name but as far as I know, the Seguins in Northern NY pretty much are all connected to the same family.

Do you know the parents' names of your Alfred John Séguin? Or where your Alfred John was born? His death certificate might give you his parents' names and his place of birth. If you are able to get back one generation further, I may be able to help you tie your Séguins into an established pedigree. I have a number of resources at my disposal.
