POGUE Family History

Recorded as Poag, Poge, Poage, Pogue, Puig, Pogg, Pudge, Poig, and the patronymics Pogson, Poxon, and Poggs, this interesting and unusual surname is of early medieval English origin. It is one of a handful of surnames surviving which were derived from the name of the first bearer's mother. This is because European society has been almost invariably patriarchal throughout history, and as a result the given name of the male head of the household has been handed on as a distinguishing name to successive generations.
