Early Origins of the Chabert family

The surname Chabert was first found in Provence, where they were the Lords of Tourette and Châteauneuf and where they have held a family seat from very early times. The family contributed greatly during the Crusades in the Holy Land, with thirteen knights of the family registered between 1266 and 1653.

Descending from the original line of Nice, the Comtat branch of the family were rewarded for their great efforts given to the community with the Lordship of Cabrières. At the beginning of the 14th century, the family were well established in the region of Savoie and several members of this eminent family made an outstanding contribution toward the society in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles, and letters patent confirming their nobility.
