Noble surnames, such as Chapleau, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Chapleau, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Lorraine. 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 Chapleau family originally lived at the town of Paresse or Parez, in the Lorraine. Although one would at first assume that the name is derived from the city of Paris, evidence suggests that the names of both the town in the Lorraine and the French capital are derived from a Gaulish tribe called the Parisii.

Chapleau Early Origins



The surname Chapleau was first found in Lorraine, where the family was originally seated in Damblain, a village in the Lorraine Bassigny.
