Heraldic trace of family: Rozée
Ancient and very noble French family, originally from Normandy, known as Rozée or Roze, that has spread, over the centuries, in different European regions. The clear nobility of the family is confirmed by its presence in the valuable work of J.B. Rietstap "Armorial General". This house, considered noble "d'extraction", was confirmed in its nobility by the sovereign in the year 1667. Moreover, this family, in all ages, always stood out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Jacques, landowner in Normandy, flourishing in 1523; Antoine, doctor in "utroque jure", flourishing in 1541; François, Knight of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, flourishing in the XVI century; Louis Antoine, "secrétaire du roi", flourishing in 1578; Thomas, jurist and landowner, flourishing in 1602; Leon, jurist, flourishing... To be continuedin 1621; Guillaume, soldier by profession, flourishing in 1642; Philip, "secrétaire du roi", flourishing in 1655; Jacques, priest, flourishing in 1678; Pierre Jacques, notary, flourishing in 1682; Guillaume, canon, theologian and apostolic commissioner, flourishing in 1702; Charles, jurist, living in 1705; Gerard, judge, living in 1717; Pierre, captain of arms, flourishing in 1724; Louis, physician, flourishing in 1737. Family names so old, without any doubt, honour not only the families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious persons.
