Buggy is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Buggy 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.

Buggy Early Origins



The surname Buggy 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.

Buggy Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Bugge, Bug, Buge, Bugg, Buggs, Buggy, Buggie and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Buggy or a variant listed above:
