An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The present generation of the Eage family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived near a prominent cliff or ridge; on a hillside.

Eage Early Origins



The surname Eage was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from ancient times. The original Edge family probably lived on the side of a hill and were described by the Saxon word "ecg" which meant "edge." After the Norman invasion of England in 1066 the surname was usually spelled "Egge."

Eage Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Eage include Edge, Edges, Egge, Eadge, Eadges, Egg, Eage, Egges, Eggs and many more.
