Longuechampe Early Origins



The surname Longuechampe 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.

Ralph of Longchamp (c.1155-c.1215) was an English physician and natural philosopher who taught at Oxford and possibly in Paris.
