Morrot History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Morrot is a nickname type of surname, derived from the Old French word "more," meaning "dark skinned," which in turn derives from the Phoenician "mauharim", meaning "eastern". This name was applied to Moors and other people with dark complexions [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Surnames derived from nicknames were quite common; they usually reflected physical characteristics or other attributes of the first person.

Early Origins of the Morrot family


The surname Morrot was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where this eminent family has held a family seat since ancient times.

Moreau was also found in the town of Montmoreau located in the department of Charente in the southwestern part of France. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The family rose to nobility through the ages including in Brittany where they were the lords of Keravel, cited in 1426. Over in Berry, the Moreau family were Lords of Chassy, and one of them was an alderman to the town of Bourges in 1651. Later, they were also the lords of Lizoren, ennobled in 1819. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
