Our surname

« Les noms de famille font partie du patrimoine des sociétés et sont le reflet de l’histoire. »
("Surnames are part of the society's heritage and are a story of a nation.")

Albert Dauzat - Dictionnaire étymologique des noms de famille et prénoms de France (1994)

The Labrecque surname in its most common form has not undergone any major change. The Labrecques of America are all descendants of two brothers, Pierre and Jean, who settled in New France from Dieppe in Normandy.

The surname in various written forms such as "de la Bresque", "de la Broque", "La Breque", "De La Brecque", "Delabrecque" "Labrecque," "Labreque," and "Labreque," is found in the old documents of New France.
