Mogridge History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

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

Early Origins of the Mogridge family

The surname Mogridge 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.
