Is Francois Stoffels ofthe French nobility?

Probably yes; in French surnames the particle "de" is the sign of the nobility.

His ancestor was Gabrielle Maria Laura d'Hautefort,daughter of Armand,the last Marquis d'Hautefort who died at the beginning of the 20th century...

Gabrielle married Fernand Stoffels de Varsberg(son of Charles Stoffels de Varsberg and Kathinka Weckbecker de Heddesdorf),a family of German descent living in part of France which is now near the French-German border...

As Gabrielle died before her father,her husband Fernand was then adopted by the last Marquis and changed the name from Stoffels de Varsberg to Stoffels d'Hautefort,as there were no male heirs left of d'Hautefort family...they had 4 sons and Francois Stoffels d'Hautefort is a descendant of one of them!

Does anyone has any information from this wedding? Pics? When and where it occured?

MAfan 09-17-2014 10:43 AM

It seems that the two are still engaged but not yet married. At least this was reported a couple of months ago by Svenksdam, when Alexander and Stephanie attended a wedding in Sweden.
