Noble surnames, such as Meusnier, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The Meusnier surname may be a local
surname, that is, a name derived from the name of a place where they once lived, or held land. The Meusnier family name is thought to have derived from Meunet, a town in the department of Indre, in the district of Issoudun. It has also been suggested that Meusnier may have been an occupational
name for a miller, deriving from the word "meunier" or "mounier," in Old French.
Early Origins of the Meusnier family
The surname Meusnier was first found in Berry, a former province until 1790 when it became a region in central France where this ancient family held a family seat
