Orgegoyd is one of the oldest family names to come from the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the late Old English personal names Osgod and Osgot, which were derived from the Old Norse name Asgautr and the Old Danish and Old Swedish names Asgut and Asgut. The common forms of this name in Normandy were Ansgot and Angot.

Orgegoyd Early Origins



The surname Orgegoyd was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Orgegoyd were among those contributors: Christopher Osgood who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1630; along with Elizabeth; John and Mary Osgood settled in New England in 1630; William, Sarah and four children settled in New England in 1648.
