Bonjour à toutes et à tous.

Je suis plutôt nouveau sur ce forum, alors pardonnez-moi si les questions sont trop évidentes ou trop faciles.
1. Le nom de mes ancêtres est de Roche. Je voudrais demander quelle est la différence entre nom; "de Roche" et "de la Roche". Des règles concernant la noblesse?
2. Dans l'un des journaux russes de 1760 (St. Petesburg), il est fait mention de de Roche-chevalier. Quel pourrait être le sens de cette description (chevalier) en 1760?
Je vous remercie!
Slawek

This side of the forum has about ZERO traffic.

You should post on the french language side.


this looks like the right place:
