Bourbons History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The original bearer of the name Bourbons, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of France. 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. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Bourbons family originally lived in a village in Allier, which is now the site of the ruined castle of Bourbon.
