Fagg Family HistoryThis interesting English surname originated in Kent as a metonymic nickname describing a fishmonger or baker. The surname dates back to the 13th Century. One source attributes the name to the Old English word "Fagg", a flat fish, plaice or a flat loaf, and is reflected in the early modern word "Fadge". Another source informs us that the nickname is a variation from either of two homonymous Middle English words "fagge" and "Fage", the former meaning a fault in the weave of a piece of cloth, the latter, deception, or flattery.
