The name Quenneville is derived from "Chêne," which means oak tree. There is a municipality in France called Quenne in the department of the Yonne in the district of Auxerre, and most variations of this surname are derived from place names where there had no doubt been oak trees at one time. For example, Quenneville can be translated as "the village of oaks."

Quenneville Early Origins



The surname Quenneville was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat, and were members of aristocratic families of that region.
