This occupational surname was derived from the Old English term "Brungar" which meant "brown spear." Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the Old German word "Brunger."

Early Origins of the Brungar family


The surname Brungar was first found in Dorset where the first record of the name appears as Brungar(us) in the Domesday Book. Thomas and William Brunger were listed in a census in Norfolk in 1275 and years later the name was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Somerset as Brunger atte Yate.
