Early Origins of the De coursey family

The surname De coursey was first found in île-de-France, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Paris and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. They branched north to Normandy in the arrondisement of Falaise at Coulliboeuf.
