Note: The Historic Research Center Family Name History EDGAR The English family name Edgar is classified as being of personal name origin. According to the scholars the "oldest and most pervasive type of surname is that derived from the given name". Such family names may be derived from a parental first name or from the font name of the grandfather or indeed a more remote ancestor of the original bearer of the surname. In this instance, the surname Edgar can be traced to the Old English personal name Eadgar which is composed of the elements "ead" meaning "prosperity" and "gar" meaning "spear". Thus the surname signifies "the son of Edgar". There are numerous other variants of this surname including Edger, Eagar, Eager, Eagger, Egar, Adger, Agar, Ager and numerous others. One of the earliest written references to the surname Edgar includes Walter Eadgar who appears in the Feet of Fines for Suffolk in 1250 while Thomas Edgar is recorded in the Liber Feodorum for Surrey in the same year. Research is of course ongoing and the name may have been recorded much earlier than the date indicated above. Later records include William Edger, from Somerset who was recorded in Kirby's Quest in the first year of Edward III's reign. Notable bearers of the surname include John Ware Edgar, chief secretary to the Government of India who was created a distinguished member of the Knights Commander of the Indian Empire in May, 1889. Records relating to the arrival of bearers of the surname to the New World include Charles Edgar who settled in Virginia in 1642. The coat of arms described below is borne by the Edgar family from the Red House, near Ipswich in Suffolk.
