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

During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Poul was first used in France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Poul family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Poul was an occupational name for a poultry farmer. Originally the name Poul was derived from the Old French word poulet, meaning chicken.
