In Reply to: Plourde means?? by Elizabeth of 301

Elizabeth, Have you ever found any meaning for the word "plourde"? As far as I know ALL the Plourdes of Canada and the USA are decendants of Rene Plourde that came from France to Québec to pioneer New France. Three of his sons lived to get married. Pierre (my ancestor)had 11 children. The pioneers left France in hopes of a better life; not because they were rebellious. It did make for a fun story. Janet
