Bouyer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The long and noble heritage behind the name of Bouyer first began in medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Bouyer family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Bouyer was an occupational name for a person who worked in a cowshed. Looking back further, we find the name Bouyer was derived from the Old French word boverie, which means a stable for oxen.

Early Origins of the Bouyer family

The surname Bouyer was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where bearers of this family name and their ancestors have been located since ancient times.
