The name Horgier finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a person who makes or sells stockings and socks. The surname Horgier is derived from the Old English word hosa, which means hose. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
This passage may be interesting to the reader: "The hosier of modern times sells stockings and other soft 'under clothing.' Two hundred years ago, [1600's] the hosiers of London were those tailors who sold ready-made clothes; but the original hosier was he who encased the 'nether man' in leather, covered both the foot and leg, and was called a hose. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Horgier or a variant listed above: ??? Hosier who sailed to Virginia in 1623; Samuel Hosier to Salem, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hosier to Maryland in 1718; Ann Hosier to Virginia in 1732.
