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

The Vice surname is thought to be derived from the Old French word "devise," meaning a "dweller at the boundary." It falls into the class of local names, that is, names derived from a place where the original bearer once lived or held land. It is plausible that some bearers of Vice took the name from one of several places in England: Viza in Ashwater, county Devon, Vyse Wood in Morthoe, county Devon, or Devizes in Wiltshire.
