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

During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Poulot 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 Poulot 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 Poulot was an occupational name for a poultry farmer. Originally the name Poulot was derived from the Old French word poulet, meaning chicken.
