Duboy History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , French


The surname Duboy is a ancient French name from Brittany (French: Bretagne). It was a name given to a person who was a boissel, a person who measured corn in the market or someone who made bushel baskets for corn. It is important to realize that wheat was called corn in the medieval period, therefore a boissel would have been working with grain, not maize.


Early Origins of the Duboy family


The surname Duboy was first found in Auvergne and Bas- Limousin where they are recorded as an ancient family with lands and estates.

René Dubois, born in 1630, travelled from Poitou, France to Quebec in the 17th century. Along with his wife, Anne-Julienne (née Dumont), they completed their home in Quebec on 25th November 1665. Together they had eight children and now have ancestors all throughout Canada. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
