Meaning & History

Allaire is the name of a village in Northwestern France(Brittany) near Vannes. The name may have Breton origins. At least two separate branches of the family came to the New World in the 17th Century. The first came to Quebec, New France in 1658. The second came to New Rochelle, New York. The name is most commonly found in Montreal, Canada, although it is found throughout the United States to a lesser degree.
