Early Origins of the Dupuy family
The surname Dupuy was first found in Languedoc where they anciently held lands and estates.
Raymond du Puy went in the Crusades to Jerusalem where he was the Grand Master de Saint-Jean in 1120, and it was from Hugues Puy who lived in 1200 that the many diverse lines of the family started including that of Du Puy of Rochefort. Déodat de Podio was a Knight's apprentice in 1359, Martial Dupuy was the Lord of Roquette, and was connected with de Montmorency when he acquired the fiefs of Sébastien Endrien in 1514, and a Dupuy was the secretary to the King in 1737.
Guillaume II Du Puy was the Lord of Lalogarde, Saint Paul and Magrin, and maintained the family patent letters and heraldic cap of nobility for the family and future generations in 1669. François Du Puy, Lord of Saint Armand, Knight of Malta, was a captain of Grenadiers of the regiment of Lorraine, and commander of the royal troops in India for which he was rewarded as a Knight of Saint-Louis in 1716.
Paul Dupuis, son of Simon and Suzanne (neé Brusquet), was Lord of Ile-aux-Oies, ensign in a company, and officer in the Regiment of Carignan. He married Jeanne Couillard in Quebec on 22nd October 1668. He later became Lieutenant-General of the Quebec Police and remained in this position until his death on 21st December 1713.

The Dupuy Motto +
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Vicit Leo e tribu Juda
Motto Translation: The lion and the Tribe of Juda have conquered
