Noble surnames, such as Bourgoyne, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Bourgoyne, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Burgoigne. 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 Bourgoyne family originally lived in the province of Burgoigne, known in the English speaking world as Burgundy.

Bourgoyne Early Origins



The surname Bourgoyne was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France where they held a family seat as a noble family. They were Lords of the Manor of Nivernais from early recorded time.
