Where did the French D'avignon family come from? What is the French D'avignon family crest and coat of arms? When did the D'avignon family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the D'avignon family history?

The prestigious surname D'avignon comes from the majestic region of Dauphiné, in France. D'avignon is a topographic surname, a form of hereditary surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came.
