An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Bogdan family, who lived in Huntingdon. The Bogdan line was descended from the Norman French name Bogin, a local name in Calvados in Normandy.

Bogdan Early Origins



The surname Bogdan was first found in Huntingdon where they held a family seat from very early times, and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. William de Buggenden, was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Lincolnshire in 1195; and Claricia de Buggeden was listed in the Sussex Rolls in 1219.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Bogdan arrived in North America very early: Tobias Bugden who settled in Maryland in 1734; John Bugdon settled in Virginia in 1738; as did his brother Samuel in the same year.
