Anguin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Anguin family

The surname Anguin was first found in Essex and Norfolk where "Osmond and Guy l'Angevin (probably brothers) both appear in Domesday [1]: the former held the manor of Witham in Essex; the latter under the Count de Boulogne in Norfolk. From one or other of these descended William l'Angevin or Angevin, settled at Churchfield in Northamptonshire, who died in 1199, Another William (perhaps his son) in 1250 held, in addition, Waplode in Lincolnshire, and was father of a third William, who left an only child, Margaret, still a minor when her mother died in 1276." [2]

In Norfolk the descendants of Guy l'Angevin, who was Lord of Bereford under Earl Eustace, continued till 1417. His grandson Sir Robert, "wrote himself sometimes de Massingham and sometimes de Thorpe, having lordships in these towns, and held seven fees, with those in Anmere, &c, about the year 1200 of the honour of Bologne." [3]
