The name Baggy comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person who was a peddler, or great traveler. It denotes one who on his travels carried a bag, a pack or a bundle.

Baggy Early Origins



The surname Baggy was first found in Norfolk, at Gaywood, a parish, in the union and hundred of Freebridge-Lynn. "Gaywood Hall, the seat of Richard Bagge, Esq., occupies the site of a palace erected by John Grey, Bishop of Norwich; and part of the moat by which the old building was surrounded is still remaining."

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Baggy were among those contributors: Bert Bagg settled in New York State in 1664.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Spes est in Deo
Motto Translation: My hope is in God.
