Well - 5 years is quite a long time to wait for a response...
But I too am descended from Foulgers (from Norfolk) and was also wondering if the name derived from Fougeres. I know that de Fougeres was a noble that arrived during the Norman Conquest and was given land in Norfolk - it seems logical to me that Foulger would be a corruption of the french name Fougeres so if you have any theories or information that backs this up I'd be happy to know.
Look forward to your reply,
