Lignay Surname History
I would like to know which are the true origins of the LIGNAY family.
I did read already that the LIGNAY family has flemish and british origins.
I have an ancestor that was born in Portugal in the 17th century with the surname LIGNAY. He was born in the Parish of São Tiago do Préstimo, Municipality of Águeda, District of Aveiro. This my ancestor with the surname LIGNAY was linked to the HEREDIA/AREDE family.
I also know that the descendants of the LIGNAY family did emigrate to several countries including Chile.
If any person with the surname LIGNAY or other persons read this message i would like that this same person or these same persons tell me everything about the true origins of the LIGNAY family if possible.
I discovered already that the families LIGNAY, LINGEN and LIGNY are exactly the same family. For example, their armorial bearings are exactly equals. I also discovered that there were important and noble persons linked to the family LIGNY (some of them were linked to the House of Luxembourg and House of Luxembourg-Ligny) from the Middle Ages.
All i know about the origins of the LIGNAY, LINGEN and LIGNY families i got it mainly through this genealogical Web site:
