When the ancestors of the Cammege family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Gamaches, in Normandy. The family name Cammege was brought to England after the Norman Conquest, when William the Conqueror gave his friends and relatives most of the land formerly owned by Anglo-Saxon aristocrats. The Normans frequently used the name of their estate in Normandy as part of their name. The surname Cammege was established by Norman landholders in the county of Herefordshire.

Cammege Early Origins



The surname Cammege was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. This distinguished name appears on the Roll of Battell Abbey honoring those Norman nobles who were present at Hastings.

Cammege Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Cammege has been recorded under many different variations, including Gamadge, Gamage, Gammage, Gamages, Gamaches and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Cammeges were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Stephen and Thomas Gamadge who settled in Barbados in 1685.
