The long and noble heritage behind the name of Fauchois first began in medieval France. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Fauchois family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Fauchois was an occupational name for a reaper or mower, or a maker of scythes deriving from the Old French word "fauche," which meant "scythe."

Fauchois Early Origins
