Deschamps History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The majestic region of Picardy in France was the place of origin of the prestigious surname Deschamps. Deschamps is a topographic surname, which is a form of hereditary surname, and was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. The surname Deschamps is derived from the Old French word "champ," which means field, and literally means "of the fields."

The surname Deschamps was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where the family was first established, and expanded to become one of the more notable names in the region.

The name was also seen in the town of Poitou, located in west-central France, by two aldermans in 1412 and 1422. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
