The noble surname Boileau originated in the region of Maine, in France. Boileau is a topographic surname, which is a type of hereditary surname. Topographic names were given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between individuals and their homelands, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, people who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original villages, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came.

Boileau Early Origins



The surname Boileau was first found in Maine, a province in France, where they held a family seat at Etienne about the year 1150. The English branch of the family was founded by Charles Boileau, Baron of Castelnau and St Croix, who fled to England after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. From him, the Boileau Baronetcy, of Tacolneston Hall in the County of Norfolk were descended.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: De tout mon coeur
Motto Translation: Of all my heart.
