Noble surnames, such as Contet, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Contet, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful province of Bourgoigne. 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 Contet family originally lived in the region of Franche-Comté. They derived their surname from the second element of the place-name.

Contet Early Origins
