Boure History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Boure has been included within French history since the early portion of the Middle Ages. This Languedoc name is derived from a maker of wooden bowls and dishes which is derived from the Old French word "bolle", which means "bowl".


Early Origins of the Boure family


The surname Boure was first found in Languedoc, where the family held a family seat since ancient times.

The family is said to have had members who were respected in their community and among them was Jean-François-Pascal-Henri who was named Knight of Malta as a reward for his courageous conduct during the Crusades and also became Lieutenant in the regiment of Aunis. Other members were known to have participated actively in the events of their times and were granted titles as was Armand-Ferdinand-Bernard-Michel du Bourg, Knight of Malta, Deputy of Haute-Garonne and Knight of the Legion of Honour in the 18th century.

The Bourg family was considered as an honorable and esteemed family and to this day several French provinces are proud to have been the ancestral home for such a family.
