The founding heritage of the Brogar family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Brogar comes from when one of the family worked as a broker, an agent for the sale and purchase of goods and services. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Anglo-French word brocour, which has the same meaning as the English word broker.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Brogars to arrive in North America: John Broker who arrived in Philadelphia in 1821.
