Valancey Early Origins



The surname Valancey was first found in Kent, where they arrived soon after the Norman Conquest, and were descended from Roger Vallance. The surname traces back to "a place on the confines of Poitou, in France, [which] gave name to William de Valance, who was son of Hugh le Brun, Earl of March, and Isabel, widow of King John. He came to England in 1247, by invitation of his uterine brother, King Henry III., and was father of the renowned Aylmer de Valance, temp. Edward I." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
