Bridges Genealogy & History

Bridges is an occupational or locational surname that, as expected, pertains to bridges. Derived from Old English "brycg", meaning bridge, the name could either describe a bridge-keeper or someone living near a bridge. Building and maintaining bridges was an important feudal responsibility, and Bridges family history includes a family seat (feudal manor) in Somerset. The name may have originated in Flanders, referring to someone from Bruges, an important trading town and British political ally in the Middle Ages. The family motto, "je garderay", is French for "I watch over", confirming the Flemish influence in Britain. Bridges family history to America began in 1622 to Virginia.
