The surname Froggatt was first found in Derbyshire where they had been anciently seated for many centuries probably preceding the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Froggatt have been found, including Froggatt, Froggert, Frogat, Froggat and others.
