Denoyer Coat of Arms / Denoyer Family Crest

This French surname of DENOYER has the associated coat of arms recorded in Rietstaps Armorial General. Registered in France. The surname was a French topographic name for someone who lived near a walnut-tree. The name was rendered in medieval documents in the Latin form NUCARIUS. The name has many variant spellings which include DUNOYER, NOUGUIER, NOUGIER, NOGUER, NOGUE and NOGUEIRA. The earliest French hereditary surnames are found in the 12th century, at more or less the same time as they arose in England, but they are by no means common before the 13th century, and it was not until the 15th century that they stabilized to any great extent; before then a surname might be handed down for two or three generations, but then abandoned in favour of another. In the south, many French surnames have come in from Italy over the centuries, and in Northern France, Germanic influence can often be detected. A notable member of the name was Andre DUNOYER de Segonzac (l884-l974), French painter and engraver, born in Boussy-Saint Antoine. He was influenced by Courbet and Corot and produced many delicate watercolour landscapes, etchings and illustrations. His series of engravings of 'Beaches' was published in l935. Surnames derived from placenames are divided into two broad categories; topographic names and habitation names. Topographic names are derived from general descriptive references to someone who lived near a physical feature such as an oak tree, a hill, a stream or a church. Habitation names are derived from pre-existing names denoting towns, villages and farmsteads. Other classes of local names include those derived from the names of rivers, individual houses with signs on them, regions and whole countries.
