Bargaray is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a barge-man. Three of the earliest instances of the name were royal bargemen for King Edward III, who reigned from 1327 to 1377. One of these three people's name explicitly indicates the occupational nature of the name Petrus del Barge. A modern transliteration of his name would be Peter of the Barge.

Bargaray Early Origins



The surname Bargaray was first found in county Worcestershire, where Robert de le Bergh was recorded in 1221.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bargaray arrived in North America very early: Balzasar Bargman, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1754; Giles Barge, who arrived in Maine in 1669; Jacob Barge, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1760; George Barge, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1770.
