VILLAR Family History

This interesting name is of Norman French origin, and was introduced into England by the Norman Followers of William the Conqueror after 1066. It is a locational surname deriving from any of the numerous places in France called "Viller", "Viller", "Villers" or "Villiers"; the places all share the same meaning and derivation, which is from the late Latin "villare", outlying farm, dependent settlement, a derivative of "villa", village, settlement. The surname development includes William de Viliers (1185, Yorkshire), and Nicholas de Vylirs (1327, Sussex).
