The surname lafeure is derived from the Old French word "fevre," which meant "a blacksmith;" as such, it was originally an occupational name for a smith, or metal worker. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, those derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, were the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages.

Early Origins of the lafeure family


The surname lafeure was first found in Savoy (French: Savoie) in the Rhône-Alpes region of the French Alps, where this noble family held a family seat since ancient times.
