CAMPOS Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Camp, Campo, Campes, and Campos, this unusual surname is English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, but of Roman (Latin) origins from the 1st century a.d. It is topographical in translation and literally means the countryside. However logically, when used as a name, it is more likely to have originally been a descriptive nickname either for a 'country boy' or more probably somebody who moved from the countryside to a town. Usually when a person moved from one village to another, in many parts of the world they would be called by their new neighbours by the name of their former village, there is in fact a village in England called 'Campes'...
