BOLDUC Family History

This interesting and rare name is of Medieval French origin and is a metonymic occupational name for a maker of ribbon and thread, deriving from the French word 'bolduc' meaning, thin ribbon or thread. This name first appeared in English records in the mid 17th Century a time when a characteristic group of surnames was brought to Britain by French Huguenot exiles. These were French Protestants, who were persecuted for their religious beliefs, during the reign of Catherine de' Medici in 16th Century through to the end of the 17th Century, when the trickle of emigrants became a flood, many of them seeking refuge in England.
