Noble surnames, such as Dubreil, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Dubreil, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of France. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Dubreil family originally lived in the seigneury of Dubreuil in the diocese of Nevers in the province of Bourbonnais, the most central of all the French Provinces.

Dubreil Early Origins



The surname Dubreil was first found in Bourbonnais, a historic province in the centre of France, now part of the modern département of Allier and Cher where this distinguished family held a family seat in the seigneurie of Dubreuil in the diocese of Nevers.
