Bezons Early Origins



The surname Bezons was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Dijonnais 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. One of the more interesting records found was that of Pierre Basile (died April 6, 1199), also named Bertran de Gurdun and John Sabroz, a French boy famous for shooting King Richard I of England with a crossbow at the siege of Châlus-Chabrol on March 25, 1199. Apparently, King Richard was not mortally wounded by Basile's bolt but the wound resulted in gangrene which lead to the king's demise. Before the king's death King Richard ordered that Basile suffer no punishment but after Basile was hanged for his actions.
