SCROGGINS Family History

This unusual and interesting surname recorded in the spellings of Scroggs and Scrogges, and the patronymic Scroggin and the double patronymic Scroggins, has at least three possible sources. The first is from the from the lands of Scrogges in the barony of Stobo, Peeblesshire. The second is English topographical and describes one who lived by a "scrog" , an area of rough ground or one covered by 'stumps', or possibly at a village or hamlet so called, and which is now completely 'lost'. The third possibility is that the name was a nickname for a 'stumpy' person.
