The surname Babin was first found in Poitou, a part of Aquitane, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. 
The family was well established in the region of the Vienne and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles, and letters patent confirming their nobility.  Their chief domain was at Gieres.
