During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Pageot was first used in France. While the patronymic
and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in France, occupational
surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Pageot family, adopted the name of their occupation
as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Pageot was an occupational name for a young servant to a nobleman who was in the first stage of training for knighthood. Such a servant was known in Old French as a page.
Early Origins of the Pageot family
