During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Poulieaux 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 Poulieaux 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 Poulieaux was an occupational name for a poultry farmer. Originally the name Poulieaux was derived from the Old French word poulet, meaning chicken.

Poulieaux Early Origins



The surname Poulieaux was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France, where the family was established in the village of Beaujolais, in the diocese of Langres.
