GOODGER Family History

This interesting and unusual name is a late development of the early Medieval English surname perhaps more familiar as "Goodyear" or "Goodyer". The surname is a good example of that medieval group of names originating in a commonly used phrase, often beginning with the element "good", in Middle English "gode", from the Old English pre 7th Century "god", which was taken up as a byname or nickname and thence eventually a surname, because of the habitual use of the phrase by someone. Other examples are Goodsir, Gooday, Goodby, Goodchap and Gooden, respectively from use of the pharases "Good sir", "Good day", "God be with you", "Good ch(e)ap" (a trader's call), and "Good evening" (God give you good even).
