An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The chronicles of the Boagey family suggest that their ancestors may have been Viking settlers. Their surname comes from a place name of Norse origins, from when they lived in a place noted for the presence of a ridge that formed a boundary between two distinct areas. It comes from a variant of the word boak or balk, of the same meaning. While historians generally agree upon the aforementioned topographical derivation, most believe that this name actually came from the area called Boak in the parish of Kirkholm.

Boagey Early Origins



The surname Boagey was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.
