The French name Dangeros has a history dating as far back as the Middle Ages. This history is intrinsically entwined with that region known as Normandy
, as the Dangeros surname was taken on when an ancestor of this family lived in the former province of Anjou
, which comprised parts of southern Armorica, Indre-et-Loire, and Sarthe. The ancient capital of Anjou
was Angers and, from the 10th century, this region was a countship belonging to the Plantagenet dynasty. Anjou
was attached to the English Crown in 1156, after Henry II, the son of the Count of Anjou, became King of England
. However, the territory was recovered by Philippe II in 1206 and, in 1487, the province was secured as Crown land by the French Crown.
Early Origins of the Dangeros family

Dangeros Spelling Variations
Changes of spelling have occurred in most surnames. The earliest explanation is that during the early development of the French language, names were not yet fixed in spelling. Usually a person gave his version of his name, phonetically, to a scribe, a priest, or a recorder. This depended on accent, and local
accents frequently changed the spelling of a name. Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations
of the name Dangeros, including Anger, Angers, Angier, Ange, Dange, d'Angeros, Dangeros, d'Anger, d'Ange, d'Angier, d'Angers, Anget, Angay, Angey, Angé, d'Anget, d'Angay, d'Angey, d'Angé, Angger, Anggers, Anggier, d'Angger, d'Anggers, d'Anggier, Ager, Agey, d'Agey, Ageais, d'Ageais, Aggeais, Lange, Angerot, Dangerot, d'Angerot and many more.

Migration of the Dangeros family to the New World and Oceana
Migration from France to New France or Quebec as it was now more popularly called, continued from France until it fell in 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, the Acadians were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England
and were deported. They found refuge in Louisiana. In 1793, the remaining French in these provinces came under British rule. Meanwhile, in Quebec, the French race flourished, founding in Lower Canada, one of the two great solitudes which became Canada. Many of this distinguished family name Dangeros were prominent in social, cultural, religious and political affairs in France and New France. Amongst the settlers in North America with this distinguished name Dangeros were Elizabeth Anger settled in Virginia in the year of 1723; Nicolas Anger settled in the province of Québec, in Pointes-aux-Trembles, by the year of 1685..
The Dangeros Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto Translation: Faith.
