Early Origins of the Granger Family
The Granger surname comes from the Anglo-Norman French word "Grainger," from the Late Latin "Granicarius." It was an occupational name for a farm bailiff, responsible for overseeing the collection of farm rents. In Scotland, the monks who farmed the old abbeys frequently called their farm operations "The Grange."
They housed cattle and stored grain at the grange, and around the farmstead was generally a cluster numerous cottages for the laborers and their families. The monk or lay brother in charge was known as "The Granger."
The surname Granger was first found in Norfolk, where the first on record was William le Grangier, in circa 1100. Other early instances of the name include Reginald le Granger listed in the Feet of Fines Suffolk in 1219; and Walter le Graunger in the Assize Rolls of Bedfordshire of 1247.
NEW FRANCE: Immigration to New France was slow; In the 1700s, land incentives were finally given out by France to 2,000 migrants. Early marriage was encouraged amongst the immigrants., and youths of 18 took fourteen-year-old girls for their wives. The fur trade was developed and attracted migrants, both noble and commoner from France. 15,000 explorers left Montreal in the late 17th and 18th centuries, leaving French names scattered across the continent. The search for the Northwest passage continued.
Migration from France to New France or Quebec, as it was now more popularly called, continued until 1759. By 1675, there were 7000 French in Quebec. By the same year the French Acadian presence in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island had reached 500. In the treaty of Utrecht, Acadia were ceded by France to Britain in 1713. In 1755, 10,000 defiant French Acadians refused to take an oath of allegiance to England and were exiled from the region. In 1765 most Acadians found refuge in Louisiana and eventually became known as Cajuns.
