Origin of foulger, Meaning of foulger

Origin: The surname Foulger (and Folger) have their roots in (depending on your account) the names Fulcher or Foulgier. These names are generally tied to the meaning "people's army" and to emigrations from northern Europe to England during the eleventh (with William the Conqueror) and sixteeth (as a result of religious persecution) centuries. The names Foulgier, Foulger, Foldier, and Folger were used somewhat interchangably within the same family units during the seventeeth century, but there is a evidence of a transition preferring Foulger in eighteenth century England and Folger in the nineteeth century United States.
