The small Norman town of Colville-Sur-Mer is the source of this name. It’s most likely that they traveled over with William the Conqueror during the Norman Conquests. The Colvilles first appear in Scotland in the 12th century. Philip de Colville was listed as a witness on a charter from Malcolm IV to the Monastery of Dunfermline.
