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

The Beufor surname is derived from a place name. As such it is categorized as a local surname, first used where the original bearer of the name lived, held land, or was born. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. The place name Beaufort is derived from the Old French words "beau," which means "beautiful," and "fort," which means "strong," but which also refers to a military fort.
