I have researched my mother's Ainge surname back to a positive 1494, when Richard Ange leased a baker's shop in Borgestrete (now Bridge Street) in Stratford on Avon. Evidence of this can be found online in the National Archives held at both Stratford on Avon Birthplace Trust and the National Archives. If you wish, a copy can be downloaded for about £3.00.
Nothing is known of his wife and children but a son was probably called Francis, as 6 of his children named a son or daughter after him. Despite endemic plague and other illnesses taking a heavy toll, Richard's descendants prospered and spread across the English counties, changing their name from Ange to Aynge in the year 1600 and Ainge in the year 1640 (Stratford Trinity church parish records). The name spellings may be due to priests recording names as they heard them.
The earliest English instance of Ange can be found on the Ancestry website. Unknown Ange living in London baptised son John in 1400, followed by Thomas in 1402 (no more details available but the names continued in use through Richard's family).
The name appears to be of French origin but is definitely NOT listed in Huguenot records. Other early Anges in Turkey and Sweden are unlikely to be linked to Richard's English Anges because migration from those areas didn't happen then.
Two of the families are known to have migrated to America and prospered. In 1649, John, wife Eleanor and son Francis emigrated to Maryland and in 1865, John, wife Mary, and a large family emigrated to Utah as Mormon pioneers.
