Duval History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The noble surname Duval originated in the region of Maine, in France. Duval is a topographic surname, which is a type of hereditary surname. Topographic names were 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 Duval is derived from the French word "vallée," which means "valley," and literally means "of the valley."


Early Origins of the Duval family


The surname Duval was first found in Maine, where they held a family seat from very early times.

Many members of this family were deeply involved in the events of the times, including the French Revolution. Charles François Marie Duval, a Lawyer, was elected to the Legislature in 1791 as a Deputy of Ille-et-Vilaine, later he became a member of the Convention where he was opposing Robespierre. Charles founded the "Journal des Hommes Libres" and under the Empire he was named Chief of the Office of General Administration.

Another distinctive member at this time, Jean Maurice Duval, Baron, began his career as an Auditor for the State Council in 1809 and in 1810 he became a Prefect. He carried out his duties aggressively and in 1840 he was made a Grand Officer of the Legion of Honour. During the late 1800's, Émile-Victor Duval, the General, was the Military Chief of Paris. He was unsuccessful in fighting a "versaillaise" army at Châtillon and as a result, was captured and later killed on the order of Vinoy.

Pierre Duval, born in 1604, travelled from France to Canada in the 17th century. He settled in Quebec with his wife, Jeanne Labarbe, born in 1605, and their six children. Four of their children passed away while they were living in Quebec. Two of his sons, Pierre and Romain, drowned, Marin was shot, and the fourth died in a fire at île d'Orléans in 1663.
