The surname Charbonneau was first found in Périgord, where this illustrious family once lived.
Over the centuries, this honorable family was well established in the region of Merle and several of its members distinguished themselves by their contribution to the communities where they lived and were rewarded with land grants, titles, and credentials. Thus Carbonnières barons were granted the right to manage the lands and territories of Merle, including the Abbey of Saint Geraud of Aurillac, and received the title of Vicomte de Turenne in the twelfth century.
The right and privilege of being the protector of a church or an abbey gave special rights and responsibilities to the family who would argue over the generations.
