An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Norman Conquest of England of 1066 added many new elements to the already vibrant culture. Among these were thousands of new names. The Fugler name is derived from the Germanic personal name Fulcher. It is composed of the elements folk, which means people, and hari, which means army.

Fugler Early Origins



The surname Fugler was first found in Lincolnshire and Derbyshire where they were granted lands about the time of William the Conqueror. Historically, the Fulchers were known as the Champions of Burgundy and records were found of the name spelt Fulchere in Normandy (1180-1195). [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The name could have also been derived from the Ango-Saxon word "folgere", in other words a follower, an attendant, a free-man who did not have a house of his own. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Fugler Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Fulcher, Fulger, Fulker, Fucher, Fullager, Folker, Foucar, Foulger, Futcher, Folger, Fugler, Fuche, Fuge, Fuidge, Fudge, Foutch and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Fugler or a variant listed above: John Folger, who settled in Massachusetts in 1630; John Fulcher, who purchased land in Virginia in 1652; William Fulcher, who came to Maryland in 1669.
