Hi Andrei,

I realise there are a number of Uglar families in places such as Romania, Turkey and other European countries. However it is a relatively rare name in the UK. I have been told it is an old Norse name (perhaps meaning OWL)and there is a legend about how the name came to being in Turkey. My Uglar's seem to be the only family with this spelling of the name in Devon, England. They sometimes used the Cornish name UGLOW, however I'm almost 100% sure they are not from a Cornish family at all. I have not made contact with anyone else who has a British link to this name. Perhaps my entire Uglar family died out in the 1800's. My 2x great grandfather was given the name as his middle name - George Uglar Marshall. His mother was Mary Uglar the only child of George Uglar and Thomazin Wreford of Devon. George had brothers Robert, William and Samuel. Some of these had sons however I have not traced their descendants as yet. I find not evidence of them after the British 1881 census.
Julie
