Noble surnames, such as Courcol, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Courcol, 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 Courcol family originally derived its surname from the place named Courcelles, in the province of Bourgogne.

Courcol Early Origins



The surname Courcol was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this distinguished family has held a family seat since ancient times.
