Champion Genealogy & History

Champion stems from the Anglo-Norman-French campion, an occupational name meaning a professional champion for hire. Not unlike lawyers, they were hired to battle to settle disagreements (for example, ownership of land), and the person who had the better champion would win. Champion family history shows that the first known recording of the name is Nicole de Champion in the Crusade Records; he accompanied Robert II, Duke of Normandy, on the first crusade around 1096. Some members of the Champion genealogy include dance partners and choreographers Gower and Marge Champion; forester, wildlife photographer and camera trapping pioneer Fredrick Walter Champion; and jumping jockey Robert (Bob) Champion.
