The story of the Boagy family begins in ancient Scotland among the Pictish clans. The Boagy family lived in the lands of Bogie in the parish of Abboshall, Fifeshire. The name is a topographic or local surname, which was given to a family who held a barony or lands, had houses, manors or estates in that area.

Boagy Early Origins

The Great Migration



Many Scots left their country to travel to the North American colonies in search of the freedom they could not find at home. Of those who survived the difficult voyage, many found the freedom they so desired. There they could choose their own beliefs and allegiances. Some became United Empire Loyalists and others fought in the American War of Independence. The Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up in the last century have allowed many of these disparate Scots to recover their collective national identity. A search of immigration and passenger ship lists revealed many early settlers bearing the Boagy name: John Bogie who arrived in Philadelphia in 1822.
