VOGT Family History

Recorded in several forms including Fogt, Foit, Vogt, Vogts, Veogt, Voigt and Voight, this is a German surname, but of pre 5th century Roman (Latin) origins. It derives from the ancient word "advocatus" from which comes the legal term advocate, but which in a transferred sense also means governor. As such it was a status name given either to people who held such a position, or as a theatrical name for one who played the part of a governor in the travelling theatres of the medieval period, or possibly as a nickname for one who was considered by his compatriots to have the airs and graces of a governor...
