Origins Available: English, German


The name Sanger is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a person who was a singaere or musician. During the Middle Ages people were identified by the type of work one did and were referred to in this manner. The traveling musician was therefore named the singaere, and was a well known and respected figure in medieval times. He was the main entertainer at fairs and festivals and was also a source of news and idle gossip from the neighboring towns.

Sanger Early Origins



The surname Sanger was first found in Devon where one of the first records of the name was Lucas le Syngere who was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of 1296. The same rolls listed William le Syngur one year later in Yorkshire.

Sanger Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Sanger include Singer, Singers, Singar and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Sanger were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Fidelitas vincit
Motto Translation: Fidelity prevails.
