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.

Vice Early Origins



The surname Vice was first found in Sussex, where Robert atte Vise was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls for that county in the year 1327.
