Early Origins of the Oregar family


The surname Oregar was first found in Dorset where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 11th century when they held estates in that shire. They are believed to be descended from the Orglanders, from Orglands in the Manche, Normandy. They were in a contingent at Hastings headed by a knight, Le Sire d'Orglande. He was granted lands by the Earl of Devon on the Isle of Wight. At the same time his followers, relatives and men at arms were granted lands in Sormerset, Essex and Kent. Unable to carry the name Orglander, they abbreviated to the ancient name in Normandy of Orger who held Org's lands.
