Lonchamp Early Origins



The surname Lonchamp was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held lands.

Nigel de Longchamps, also known as Nigel Wireker, ( fl. c. 1190-1200), was an English satirist, poet and monk of Christ Church, Canterbury. William Longchamp (died 1197), also known as William de Longchamp or William de Longchamps, was a medieval Lord Chancellor, Chief Justiciar, and Bishop of Ely in England. His family originated in the village of Longchamps, Normandy. His brother, Henry de Longchamp or Henry de Longo Campo (c1150-1212), born in Wilton Castle, near Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire was an English politician, High Sheriff of Herefordshire for 1190 and 1193 and later was appointed High Sheriff of Worcestershire from 1195 to 1197. Ralph of Longchamp (c.1155-c.1215) was an English physician and natural philosopher who taught at Oxford and possibly in Paris.
