The history of the Fugere family goes back to the Medieval landscape of northwestern France, to a region known as Brittany. It is derived from the family living in Brittany. The name Fugere is also derived from the Old French word "fougere," meaning "fern," and indicates that the original bearer lived in an area heavily grown with ferns.

Fugere Early Origins



The surname Fugere was first found in Britanny (Bretagne). One of the first records of the family was Jeanne de Fougères (died after 1273.) Also known as Lady of Fougères, she was the wife of Hugh XII of Lusignan, Count of La Marche and Count of Angoulême. She was born in Brittany, the only daughter and surviving child of Raoul III, seigneur of Fougères and Isabelle de Craon (born 1212.)

Fugere Spelling Variations



French surnames were subject to numerous alterations in spelling because of the various cultural groups that inhabited specific regions. Eventually, each region possessed its own local dialect of the French language. The early development of the French language, however, was also influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heavily from the Italian language during the Renaissance. As a result of these linguistic and cultural influences, the name Fugere is distinguished by a number of regional variations. The many spelling variations of the name include Fugere, Fugère, Fougere, Fougière, Fougères, Fougeray, Fougerolle, Fougerolles, Fougeyrolles, Fougerat, Fougeret, Fougeron, Fougeroux, Feugère, Feugière, Faugère, Faugière, Fauguiere, Feuchière, Fouchère, Feuquières, Feuquerolles, Fouquière, Fougery and many more.
