Origins Available: English, French


Auge is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Auge family lived in Oxfordshire.

Auge Early Origins



The surname Auge was first found in Auge, as De Augo from Crevecoeur, Calvados, in Normandy. The family were bailiffs of the town of Auge. Henry, Duke of Normandy issued a writ insisting that the men of their ilk would not be allowed to attend the fair at Crevecoeur.

Auge Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Agg, Agge, Aug, Auge and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Auge or a variant listed above:
