An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Vice surname is thought to be derived from the Old French word "devise," meaning a "dweller at the boundary." It falls into the class of local names, that is, names derived from a place where the original bearer once lived or held land. It is plausible that some bearers of Vice took the name from one of several places in England: Viza in Ashwater, county Devon, Vyse Wood in Morthoe, county Devon, or Devizes in Wiltshire.
