Guyenne and Gascony, not far from Languedoc, were owned by Henry II
after he married Alienor d'Aquitaine, so the English were not far from
Languedoc at that time. So, the move could be from Languedoc to
Gascony during or before Henry II, and then to England.
However, from a probability point of view and without documents, I
would prefer 2 different families as suggested by Matt.
