Origin of Surname

This is a surname of French origin, believed to come from the town of La Cour in Normandy. It may also refer to someone who lived in a courtyard or at a Royal or Baronial court.

Early records

Although both de la Cour and de la Court are found in records from 1600 onwards, there are suggestions that the original family used the spelling de la Court, and that de la Cour was a new arrival from France later in the 17th century.

The family name Le Court, which exists in a number of variations, is thought to be entirely separate and to derive from the French court for short, meaning a short man.


  • de la Cour, 1668
  • de la Court, 1340
  • Le Court and variations are a separate family
