Roussel History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Roussel family


The surname Roussel was first found in Burgundy (French: Bourgogne), an administrative and historical region of east-central France where the family has been traced from ancient times.

For the next several centuries the family prospered and branched to Dauphiné where they held the lands and titles of Counts of Roussilon. In Dauphiné the family again branched and held the lands of Anjo and Annonay. During the 17th century, branches formed in Toulouse and Languedoc where many members intermarried with the distinguished families of those regions, such was the case in Languedoc on 6th October 1827, where the family head, in recognition for his dedication to the King and country, was awarded letters patent confirming his nobility on the day of his marriage.
