Here you wil see HOW the Family branches spread  over Belgium, France ,  America. And I  mention not only several family branches but  I try  also to make a general layout of the possible connections between the family branches to facilitate further research.

Around 1600 we find them in half a circle starting

from France : Paris - Roissy - Senlis - Amiens - Lille    

to Belgium: Courtrai/Oudenaarde/Tournai - Mons (Hainaut) - Namur

and again France: Metz - Thonnance-lès-Joinville.

For practical reasons we start our overview with Belgium, where we could find the oldest references to the patronyme, then the most important part France and last but not least the emigration to America.
