Early Origins of the Ranger family


The surname Ranger was first found in Champagne, where the family was established in Rangecourt, a village in the department of Haute-Marne, in the district of Chaumont.

The members of the family also branched to other regions, where several of them distinguished themselves. The branch Rangeard was established in a village in Pas-de-Calais, in the district of Arras.

Pierre Rangeard, a historian, was born in Angers in 1692, the son of a shoemaker. He was a priest in the parish of Saint-Maurice of Angers, and then state prosecutor for Anjou. He died in 1726. Several of his works are located in the library in Angers.
