The distinguished surname Vannoy is Dutch in origin. It is thought to be derived from the Belgian place name "Huy." This element combined with the characteristic Dutch prefix "van," meaning "from," would indicate "one who came from Huy."

Vannoy Early Origins



The surname Vannoy was first found in Holland, where the Vannoy family became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in South Holland, a province of Holland, the most crowded province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Rotterdam, Leyden and Shiedam. Noted is the famed castle of Teilengen where Jacqueline of Bavaria is buried. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family. The family name Vandehey held a family seat in Rotterdam.
