The Jung family has descended through the lines of the ancient Normans that came to England following their Conquest of England in 1066. The Jung name reveals that an early member was a young or youthful person deriving from the Old French word jeune, which means young.

Jung Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Jung family name include June, Jung, Junge, Jevene, Le Jevene, Le Juen and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Jung family to immigrate North America:
