Lacambra History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The distinguished Spanish surname Lacambra is of locative origin, being based on a physical or geographic feature found in the vicinity of the eponymous bearer's place of abode. In this case, the Spanish word "camara" means "granary or barn," and the surname would indicate that the original bearer lived beside a granary. In the feudal manors and estates of the Middle Ages, the granary would have been used by the lord's extensive household, and would have been a local landmark.
Early Origins of the Lacambra family
The surname Lacambra was first found in the province of Galicia in the northwestern region of the Iberian peninsula. However, like many locative surnames, Lacambra arose independently in various parts of Spain. Records show that a branch of the family had its ancestral home in the Valley of Ayala, in Amurrio (Alava).
