My father, who grew up outside Montreal, QC happened upon a copy of a fairly extensive genealogy book that a friend of my parents had from a very large gathering of Savage families in Quebec. A large majority of the early ancestors were traced back to Wales and Ireland. We are pretty certain there was a common relation back in the early 1800's as there was an entire large branch of the tree missing underneath certain family members who emigrated from Wales, where we believe our original ancestors were from.
I knew nothing of my great grandparent until a family member dug a bit deeper and found out that my family of is Irish origin. This 'memory' was lost because my grand father's father abandoned him when he was a young boy and the family hushed it all up as in those days it was shameful. He was nearly sent to a work house until an Aunt rescued him and brought him up. His mother died young. I felt very sad for my Grandfather (now deceased) when I found out. What a tragic life.
Sorry for the mistakes in my posting...I am tired!
My last name is Savage Born in Oklahoma. My Grandfather did a genealogy book that links with some of the savages listed. I’ve been trying to find out about one of my ancestors Benjamin Franklin Savage to find out how and why he got his name.

How many savages sre therer
While not as common there are quite a few Savidge's in America. I live in Texas. My family migrated from Illinois. The Majorville Cemetery in Illinois has many of my direct ancestral relatives dating from the 1800's. The Illinois Savidge's came from Zanesville OH pre 1840's. There is even a lake Savidge in OH. We've traced the OH Savidge's back to New Jersey. Based on this article Savage's and Savidge's all probably distant related and have the same ancestors going back to at least 1086.
