An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Mungy reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Mungy family lived in Devon. The name, however, derives from the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Montejoie, Normandy.

Mungy Early Origins



The surname Mungy was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Mungy 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 Mungy family name include Mountjoy, Mountejoy and others.

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 Mungy family to immigrate North America: George Mountjoy settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1768.
