The Bagehot name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Bagehot was originally a name given to someone who worked as a peddler who would travel buying and selling goods for profit. Another source claims the name was derived from the French word bagagier, or baggage-carrier. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bagehot or a variant listed above: Giles Badger who settled in New England in 1620; the same year as the "Mayflower"; Ann Badger settled in Virginia in 1639; William Badger settled in Nevis in 1670.
