Aungier History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Aungier is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Aungier family lived in the area of Angers, Anjou France and is found there in charters in the Latinized form of Angevinus. [1]

Early Origins of the Aungier family

The surname Aungier was first found in Essex, where Osmond Angevines held estates in 1086. [2] He and Wido Angevines were ancestors of a family which continued through to at least 1202 in the area. By 1165, some of the family had spread to Oxford, Surrey, York, and Norfolk. [3]

In the Domesday "several of the name are found. The principal land-owner among them, who is supposed to have been of Breton origin, held considerable estates in Devonshire under Baldwin de Meules. A branch of Angers flourished at Carclew, from temp. Henry II. " [4]

"Anger's Leigh in Somersetshire was held by the family from 1360 to 1427. John de Aunger served as knight of the shire for Leicester in three of Edward I.'s parliaments, and in the first held by Edward II. Josceline D'Aunger in 1169 witnessed the foundation charter of Lanercost Abbey, and Ralph de Angers in the thirteenth century held lands in Wilts. Ralph de Aungers was Sheriff of Notts, 49 and 50 Henry III. " [5]

Lefuine Anger was listed in Suffolk in 1095 and Willelmus Angeri was recorded in Warwickshire in 1197. William filius Aunger was listed in Cambridgeshire in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. [6]

Aungier 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 Anger, Angier, Aunger, Angeri, Angear, Ainger and many more.
