Multiple Origins for the Surname Chasse


French


The noble surname Chasse originated in the region of Maine, in France. Chasse is a topographic surname, which is a type of hereditary surname. Topographic names were given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between individuals and their homelands, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, people who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original villages, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came.

Chasse Early Origins



The surname Chasse was first found in Maine, where the family took its name in early times from Chassé, a village in the department of Sarthe, in the district of Mamers.
