Woodger History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Woodger family


The surname Woodger was first found in Essex where they held a family seat. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1301 when Robert le Wodehyewere held estates in that shire.
