DARCY Family History

This famous surname recorded in many forms including Arcy, d'Arcy, d'Arcey, Darcy, Darcey, Dorcey, Dorcy, Dorsey, D'orsay, Orsay, and Orsi, is usually of French locational origins, although Irish names may have a different root. The French forms originate from either the village of Arcy in La Manche, named from the Gallic "ars", meaning the bear, and the suffix "-acum", meaning a settlement, or from Orsai village in Seine et Orne. This is a derivative from the Latin personal name "Orcius". The surname was introduced into England in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066, when a Norman knight called, it is believed, William de Arecai, was granted thirty manors in Lincolnshire by William, the Conqueror.
