Doris Early Origins



The surname Doris was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. They held a family seat in D'Oris, in the department of Isere, in the canton of Entraigues a community from which they take their name. The name was connected with an ancient Indo Euopean Swiss race which migrated to the region from Thessalie in the 13th century. The family were well established in the region of the Rhone in south eastern France 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.
