The Garnaux family originally derived its surname from the seigneury of Garneau in the region of Poitou. 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 often denoted the proprietorship of a village or estate; in other instances they indicated where a person had moved from.

Garnaux Early Origins



The surname Garnaux was first found in Poitou where they held a family seat in the honor of the seigneury of Garneau in the region of Saintonge in the diocese of Saintes in the parliament of Bordeaux.
