Families covered: Valpy of England, Valpy of Jersey

'Armorial' (p339) reports that "by local tradition, the family is said to be an offshoot from the House of Volpi, of Italy, a branch of which came to Normandy on the return of the Normans from their Italian expedition, under Roger I., son of Tancred, in the latter half of the eleventh century, The name, in the local dialiect, has always been pronounced precisely as if written Volpi."
