Lefoyer Early Origins



The surname Lefoyer was first found in Ille de France, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Paris and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. The Foy or Foix family became one of the most distinguished families of France and eventually rose to the Dukes de Foix de Candale.
