VILLA Family History

Recorded in many forms including Ville, de Ville, de Villier, Desvilles (France), Vila, Vilas (Catalonian), Villa, Villabaso (Spanish), Villetta (Italian), and others, this is a famous surname of Roman origins, although specifically associated with France. It is habitational, and describes a person who lived in the centre of a village, as opposed to the outskirts, or it is locational from any of the various places called Villa, Ville, and Vila found throughout Southern Europe. It was one of the most important surnames introduced into England at the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066, and many branches of the English nobility trace their ancestry back to the invaders who carried this name.
