Noble surnames, such as Pariseau, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Pariseau, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Lorraine. In France, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Pariseau family originally lived at the town of Paresse or Parez, in the Lorraine. Although one would at first assume that the name is derived from the city of Paris, evidence suggests that the names of both the town in the Lorraine and the French capital are derived from a Gaulish tribe called the Parisii.

Pariseau Early Origins



The surname Pariseau was first found in Lorraine where this distinguished family held a family seat at Paresse or Parez in that province, and were important members of the aristocracy. The main stem of the family became the Barons of Dagonville, Comtes de Sanpigny, and the Marquis de Bruney in 1730.
