It was from Belgium in the 13th century from a place called Bruges. The term Bourse is believed to have derived from the family name Beurze.

Some stories suggest that the origins of the term "bourse" come from the Latin bursa meaning a bag because, in 13th century Bruges, the sign of a purse (or perhaps three purses), hung on the front of the house where merchants met.
