Sabourin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Sabourin family

The surname Sabourin was first found in Gascony (French: Gascogne), an area of southwest France bordering Spain, that was part of the "Province of Guyenne and Gascony" prior to the French Revolution, where the family held a family seat in early times.

The members of this distinguished family were also established in other regions. The branch Sabouraud was established in Limousin, the branch Saboureau in Poitou, and the branch Savourey in Burgundy. Several members of the family distinguished themselves through their respective achievements, such as Charles-François Saboureux de la Bonneterie, a lawyer who died in Paris in 1781. Among his written works was "Constitution des Jésuites" (1762).
