The Gagen Family - Australia

Updated May 20, 2006

About Our Family Research


The Gagen [Gegan]line commenced in Australia with the migration of Frederick William Gegan from Schmalkalden, Germany, to Dalby,Queensland, in 1852. The surname spelling was changed to Gagen in 1892.

The majority of Gagens in Australia come from this German line, with the balance tracing their heritage to either the English Gagens or the Irish Gagens (Geoghegan etc).

It would appear that in the 1850s other family members of the German Gagens also migrated to North America (Canada?) and to Russia.
