Tyzac / du Thysac family

My ancestors were French glass makers, the Tyzac / du Thysac family. They came from Belrupt, Alsace to England in the late 1500s. I would love to hear from anyone also researching this line.

Hi Rosalyn,

I think Belrupt is not in Alsace.
It appears to be near Verdun which is in Lorraine so you should probably look over there.

Alsace and Lorraine for the most part have very different histories and cultures.

For example, the family name appears to be a French name which is very uncommon in Alsace.

Alsatians don't usually have French last names.

Hope it helps your search!

Du Thysac
by: Lindsay Smith

Think the Thysacs were in the Vosges region of Lorraine where most of their partnered glasshouses were centred. I too descend from Jehan Thysac & Alix Barizey line. The old chateau de Lichecourt was their seat so to speak.

I'm tracing this family too and have made pretty good progress.
