An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Vore was carried to England in the enormous movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Vore family lived in East Lothian, Scotland. Their name, however, is a reference to Vaux or Vallibus, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Vore Early Origins



The surname Vore was first found in East Lothian, where they were directly descended from the great baronial family of De Vaux, or De Vallibus, and still had a castle of this name in Normandy until the year 1080. They possessed Dalston and Gilliesland in Cumberland, and the barony of Dirletoun in East Lothian.
