Re: Descendants in France of Pierre LUSSIER & Symphorienne TALLON
Actually I do think I am in error now:

From what I see there seems to be two sources of the name:
L'Hussier........refering to the role of Bailiff...
often found attached to the Melon family of Paris......
so it would read: for ex: a Jean Melon l'Hussier
as in John Melon Sheriff
I have also seen the name Lussiere attached to persons originally from Lozone region of France.
What I have been tracking is the morphing of Lisoures to Lesieur...........Lisoures referring to a family origin out of Lisieux France in Normandy..
and it tracks to Paris around the year 1200 AD........and becomes Lesueur and Lesieur.........
When I saw Lussier in Canada, I at first thought it was another example of mutilitated spellings from former French names and was probably one of the many versions of Lesieur.
However, now I think I am probably wrong on this matter.
Dominque delaMothe Lussiere........a companion in Canada with La Salle.........seems to be from the Lozone or Langueduc regions
Jacques Lussier seems to be clearly from Paris.
I apologize for the confusion.
