Early Origins of the Mauroy family
The surname Mauroy was first found in Champagne, where the family has been traced to ancient times. Pierre Maury (c.1282-1324) was a shepherd in the Comté de Foix known for his depositions to Bishop Jacques Fournier who was hunting for Cathar heretics. He plays a prominent role in the French historian Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie's study "Montaillou, village occitan de 1294 à 1324."
