History[edit]

  • Etymology of the name:

Names ending in "court" come from the Latin "cortis", which indicated a farmyard. The name is applied to the farm itself, around which the village formed. Consequently, the etymology of the word Abaucourt could be considered as such :

Ab (preposition) = "of a different place"
Ad (preposition) = "at, towards, around"
Cortem, Cortis' = "of the court, farm, property"
