Over the centuries the name La Placa may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname La Placa came originally from PLACE, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus. The Last Name of PLACE was a locational name ‘the dweller at the place’ i.e. the stead, the farm, a mansion or villa. The Last Name arose from residence at such a spot. The name was primarily brought into England from France during the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066 in the form PLACE, primarily rendered in documents in the Latin PLATEAU (meaning a broad street). Local last names, by far the largest group, extrapolated from a place name where the man held land or from the place from which he had come, or where he actually lived. These local last names were primarily preceded by a preposition such as “de”, “atte”, “by” or “in”. The names may derive from a manor held, from working in a religious dwelling or from literally living by a wood or marsh or by a stream. Early records of the name mention William de la Place, 1273, County Lincolnshire. John Place of Yorkshire, registered at Oxford University in the year 1604. John Place and Elizabeth Richardson were married at St. Dionis Backchurch, London in 1627. Since the dawn of civilisation the need to communicate has been a prime drive of all higher mankind. The more organized the social structure became, the more exigent the need to name places, objects and situations essential to the survival and existence of the social unit. From this common stem arose the requirements to identify families, tribes and individual members evolving into a pattern in evidence today. In the formation of this history, common usage of customs, trades, locations, patronymic and generic terms were frequently adopted as last names. The demands of bureaucracy formally introduced by feudal lords in the 11th century, to define the boundaries and families within their fiefdoms, solidified the need for personal identification and accountability, and last names became in general use from this time onwards. The earliest French hereditary last names are found in the 12th century, at more or less the same time as they arose in England, but they are by no means common before the 13th century, and it was not until the 15th century that they stabilized to any great extent; before then a Last Name might be handed down for two or three generations, but then abandoned in favour of another. In the south, many French last names have come in from Italy over the centuries, and in Northern France, Germanic influence can frequently be detected….
