The name Bug reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Bug family lived in Nottingham. The family's name, however, is reference to Buge, Normandy, their place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Bug family


The surname Bug was first found in Nottingham where they held a family seat from very ancient times, and were granted lands by Duke William for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Bug Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bug family name include Bugge, Bug, Buge, Bugg, Buggs, Buggy, Buggie and others.

Migration of the Bug family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Bug family to immigrate North America:
