Mangus Surname History



The ancient Scottish name Mangus was first used by the Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The original bearer of the name lived in Aberdeen.


Early Origins of the Mangus family

Early History of the Mangus family


This web page shows only a small excerpt of our Mangus research.

Mangus Spelling Variations


Spelling and translation were hardly exact sciences in Medieval Scotland. Sound, rather than any set of rules, was the basis for spellings, so one name was often spelled different ways even within a single document. Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Mangus has been spelled Mann, Mangus, Man and others.

Migration of the Mangus family to the New World and Oceana


Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Among them:
