The name Baulgy is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a person of a conjectural profession. It is thought that this name is occupational in nature, due to the structure of the name of the first person to bear the name. Hugh le Balgy appears in the historical record in the Hundrendorum Rolls of 1273, in the county of Norfolk. The inclusion of the word le in a name usually indicates that it is occupational, however, no records exist which indicate what a balgy does.

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 Baulgy or a variant listed above: Frances Balgay, who came to America in 1763.
