Hope this helps. E-mail me if you have questions. The Vaulx name is French Normandy and the family came from France to England soon after William the conqueror and lived as "Landed Gentry" in England for 500 years or more and in the early part of the 17th century sent several of their younger sons to Tidewater Virginia in the vicinity of what is now Williamsburg. The name comes from the Norman-French VAL or VALE (valley) and its plural VALS or VAUX from the Latin VALLIS. According to Burke's "Landed Gentry", p. 885, Hubert and Robert along with their brother, Ranulf, were sons of Harold de Vallibus who came to England with the Normans.

All of this is taken from Horsfall's book on the Vaulx family.
