The surname Delaurier is a topographic surname, which was 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. The name Delaurier is derived from the Old French word "laurier," meaning bay tree, and indicates that the original bearer of the name lived near such trees.

Delaurier Early Origins



The surname Delaurier was first found in Périgord, where, despite a lack of documented evidence it is thought that ancestors of this name may have long been established.
