Where did the Spanish Almaguer family come from? What is the Spanish Almaguer family crest and coat of arms? When did the Almaguer family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Almaguer family history?

The noble surname Almaguer is of Spanish descent, and appears to be of toponymic origin, derived from the place name where the original bearer first lived or owned land. The name Almaguer is rooted in the Arabic language, and comes from the two words "al" and "magra" which together means "red clay." Thus, the place where the surname Almaguer originated, must have had the characteristic of red clay.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Almaguer, Almanguera, Almagra, Almagros and others.

First found in the province of Cuidad Real in the southern Regions of Spain. However, early records also show a presence of the Almaguer surname in the area around the city of Cordoba.
