CAMPION Family History

This interesting name, with variant spellings Campion, Campione, Champion, Champain and Championnet, has two distinct possible origins, the first and most likely being an occupational name for a professional Champion, deriving from the Old Norman-French "campiun" or "campion" (Old French "champiun"), a champion or professional fighter employed to represent one of the parties to a suit in a trial by combat. (In an ordeal by battle the accuser and the accused took the field themselves). The surname is believed to have been introduced into England by followers of William the Conqueror after the Norman Invasion of 1066. Early recordings of the surname include: Herbert Campion (Hampshire, 1148); Geoffrey Champiun (Northamptonshire, 1154); Roger le Campion (Oxfordshire, 1197); and William le Champiun (Suffolk, 1220)...

Hi I'm Stephanie Campion. I'm trying to connect with my roots. Any Campion family out there? My father is Steve Campion and his father was the late Marlon Campion


I believe that Anastice Campion who married Michael Tobin may have been my great grandmother x5 generations in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny. They may had Richard Tobin who married Betty Walsh on 3 Feb 1795 in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny. Richard had brothers: James; Edmund and sister Catherine.
