Noble surnames, such as Courcell, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Courcell, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Bourgogne. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, and names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Courcell family originally derived its surname from the place named Courcelles, in the province of Bourgogne.
