The origins of the Welsh name Mogerage go back to the ancient Celtic culture that existed in the hills and Moors of Wales. The forbears that initially held the name Mogerage once lived in or near the settlement of Mogridge in the southwestern English county of Devon. The surname Mogerage belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Mogerage Early Origins



The surname Mogerage was first found in Breconshire (Welsh: Sir Frycheiniog), a traditional county in southern Wales, which takes its name from the Welsh kingdom of Brycheiniog (5th-10th centuries), where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Mogerage Spelling Variations



Although there are not an extremely large number Welsh surnames, there are an inordinately large number of spelling variations of those surnames. This variety of spellings began almost immediately after the acceptance of surnames within Welsh society in the 15th century. As time progressed, these old Brythonic names were eventually were recorded in English. This process was problematic in that many of the highly inflected sounds of the native language of Wales could not be properly captured in English. Some families, however, did decide to modify their own names to indicate a branch loyalty within the family, a religious adherence, or even a patriotic affiliation. The name Mogerage has seen various spelling variations: Muggeridge, Mugeridge, Mugridge, Moderidge, Modridge and many more.

The Great Migration



The Welsh migration to North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries contributed greatly to its rapid development. These migrants were in search of land, work, and freedom. Those Welsh families that survived the long ocean journey were critical to the development of new industries and factories, and to the quick settlement of land. They also added to an ever-growing rich cultural heritage. A search of the immigration and passenger lists has shown a number of people bearing the name Mogerage: Charles Mugridge, who settled in Charleston in 1822; Francis Mugridge, who settled in Georgian in 1732; as well as J. Mugridge, who arrived in California in 1852..

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Dat deus incrementum
Motto Translation: God gives increase.
