It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Aegarte was formed. The name was derived from the ancient personal name Eggar.

Aegarte Early Origins



The surname Aegarte was first found in Lancashire in the north of England, where they held a family seat from ancient times, but from about the 13th century moved south to Foston in Derbyshire, and Sudbury, in the same county.

Aegarte Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Aegarte include Agard, Aggard, Aegard, Agart, Aggart, Egard and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Aegarte were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Edward Agard was one of the earliest settlers in the New World, being recorded in Virginia in the year 1640; Adam Egart settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1749.
