The Quincy family name may have come from Cuinchy, Pas-de-Calais which lies between Artois and Flanders. There is no evidence leading to the origin of the first known Quincy, Saher de Quincy. He is first heard of in England in the 1120s. His unique first name can lead to numerous possibilities. There is some similarity to Portuguese or Galician "Soeiro," which is referred to nobility in Portugal in the late eleventh and early twelfth centuries. Saher is a Jewish surname and in modern Arabic it means dawn.
