Oyanguren, Oxanguren, Ojanguren

OYANGUREN, OXANGUREN, OJANGUREN (variations of the same word) After read some books I have found that In Bizkaia are farms with the name Ojanguren, and in Gipuzkoa with the name Oyanguren

Baserriak orFrams in Gipuzkoa: In Elgeta I think this is the Older, In Bergara, Irun and Zumaia

Ojanguren in Bizkaia: Two farms in Lezama with this name, there are others but are not very old so is not the name of the house, but the one of the first owner, they are in Elorrio, Basauri and Galdakao.

Meaning: In the high part of the forest; OIAN: Forest ,GUREN: high part of a land

Proves of Nobility: There are a lot of them in many villages, In 1346 is documented a man with this surname living in Tolosa, In 1477 J. Oyanguren lived in Zumarraga, another Oyanguren in Urretxu in 1580, Donostia 1489.......

Proves of Ojanguren: Elorrio (1575,1708),Bilbao (1765),..........

There are farms in Zumarraga with the name Oyanguren, possibly 500 years old. One is named Oyanguren Haundia, also known as Oyaun (thanks to San Juan for this info).
