Page about descendants of Benoni Beauregard
Origin of the name
Beauregard = Beau + regard, litterally Beautiful look.
There are about 150 places called Beauregard in France. The Beauregard
name is usually given by the local geography. It designates a promontory
allowing to have a beautiful look over the surroundings. It is thus not
surprising to find many Beauregard Castles, for example, and many gave
their name to wines.
The descendants of Bénoni Beauregard
Bénoni is born from unknown parents in 1795. When he married Claire
Nadeau in 1814, and when baptising his first children, he held no family
name. Then, for the next six, he choosed Bonneman, name of his mentor.
Finally, for reasons still unkown, in 1835, he selected Beauregard.
I found 206 descendants of this family, including André Beauregard.
