Noble surnames, such as Burpeau, evoke images of the ancient province of Bourbonnais, which was the most central of all the French Provinces. The original bearer of the name Burpeau, 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 Burpeau family originally lived in a village in Bourbonnais, where early members of this lineage settled in the foothills of the region.
