Origins Available: English, German


The name Bugge reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Bugge family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Bugge 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.

Bugge Early Origins



The surname Bugge 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.

Bugge Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Bugge, Bug, Buge, Bugg, Buggs, Buggy, Buggie and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Bugge name or one of its variants:
