The ancient and distinguished German surname Fegley is derived from the Middle High German word "fegen," meaning "to clean." The name was most likely initially borne by a cleaner of weapons and armor.
The surname Fegley was first found in Swabia, where it first emerged. The earliest known bearer of the name was "der junger Veger" ("the young Veger",) who lived in the town of Leonberg near Stuttgart in 1350. The young Fegley family was instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
