The French name Guerin has a history dating as far back as the Middle Ages. This history is intrinsically entwined with that region known as Normandy, for it was derived from when the Guerin family lived in Normandy, at Gueron.

Guerin Early Origins



The surname Guerin was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where they held a family seat at Gueron and were the seigneurie of that area, in the department of Calvados in the arrondissement of Bayou. In 1086 Turstin de Giron or Girounde was an under-tenant of Odo, Bishop of Bayou. Later, in 1133, Gueron is described as a bravassoria of the Bishop of Bayou. They also branched to Grée and Landelle in Brittany. This distinguished family were Grand Masters of the Order of St.Jean of Jerusalem in 1231.
