Gauger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Gauger family

The surname Gauger was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), at Gauchi, Gaucy or Gaacy, near L'Aigle. Many of the family emigrated to England around the time of the Conquest when they held the Barony of Gaugy in Northumberland. 'Ellington was an ancient barony of this family, who possessed it from the time of King Henry I., as appears in the Testa de Nevill.' The church was founded by Ralph de Gaugy, in the pontificate of Hugh Pudsey, Bishop of Durham. [1]

Back in Normandy, France the family were well established in the region of Calvados.
