Marcy History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Marcy family

The surname Marcy was first found in Poitou, where the family has held a family seat since very early times.

By the 11th century, members of this ancient family were well established in the region of the Poitou and some members served the community with distinction in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles, and letters patent confirming their nobility. This family has been cited with a chivalrous house since 1052. Alfred, Lord of Marsay, was awarded this title in recognition of his noteworthy services to the King and country. Playing an important role in the services of the King, Noble Thomas was made Knight of Marçay, and Etienne de Marsay was the Governor of the Town and of the Palace of Chinon in 1167 and became the Sénéchal of Touraine and of Anjou in 1190.
