Ethier History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Ethier family

The surname Ethier was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie) in northern France, where the family was established in early times.

The members of the family took their name from Eth, a parish in the department Nord, in the district of Quesnay. They were also established in other regions of France and of Europe. One branch was registered in Lorraine. Several members of the family distinguished themselves through their various accomplishments.
