The name Broggatt comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a young, headstrong person. The surname Broggatt is derived from the Old French words broque and brocke, which became the Old English words broket and brocket c. 1410. All of these words refer to a stag in its second year with its first set of horns. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Broggatt family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Broggatt were among those contributors: John Brocket settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635; William Brockett settled in Virginia in the same year; John Brocket settled in Delaware in 1785.
