The name Beauchamp is derived from the Old French words "beau", which means "beautiful", and "champs", which means "countryside" or "field". Therefore, it is classed as a topographical surname, which is a name that is taken from physical features or landmarks near where the family lived.


Early Origins of the Beauchamp family


The surname Beauchamp was first found in Poitou, where the family has held a family seat since ancient times. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

In the 1700's Joseph Beauchamp, judge and legislator, was an active member of his community and was considered as a man of dutiful purpose. He was elected deputy by his region at the council of "Cinq-Cents". Through the years the branches of the family became more prominent and achieved acclaim through their valuable and constant contributions to the community in which they lived.

Charles Grégoire Beauchamps was granted the title of Marquis in recognition of his dedication and faithful service and was promoted to the rank of Colonel for his action on the battlefield. Another noble member of this ancient family was Henri-Charles de Beauchamps, Lord of Charbonnières. Widely respected by his peers, he was elected deputy of the nobility at the Estates General for the Senechalsy of Saint-Jean-d'Angely on March 21, 1789.

Jacques Beauchamp, born in 1635, travelled from La Rochelle, France to Montreal, Canada in 1659 along with his wife, Marie Dardeyne, daughter of Pierre and Gillette (née Chaisson), and his son, Jacques. In Quebec he worked as a carpenter, farmer, and he also served in the military of Sainte-Famille. They remained together in Quebec until Jacques passed away at Pointe-aux-Trembles on 8th February 1693. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
