Re: ORIGEN OF LEPINE NAME... Early Ancestors

Gabriel Bérard's father in France had the "dit" name "Varennes" indicating that he was a tailor of women's clothes.
Gabriel emigrated in 1670 and settled in the d'Autray / Lanoraie area, about 30 miles northeast of Montreal.
My guess is that his dit name is related to either (1) some feature of the land area where he settled, or (2) something to do with his occupation of "Coureur de Bois", fur trapper or trader.
It would be nice to learn more on the likely origen of "dit Lépine".
Joe.. in Calif.
