CAGE Family History

This very unusual and interesting name has three separate but related interpretations, deriving from the Old French and Middle English "cage", cage. The first of these means "one who made and\or sold small cages for animals or birds", from the Old French word "Cagier". The second meaning is also occupational, and applies to one who was employed as the "Keeper of the Cage". This was the large public cage where, during the Middle Ages, those guilty of various kinds of petty crime were imprisoned for short periods.
