According to sources found in the British Library, Frogge is a nickname from the Old English frogga meaning frog. There is a Nicholas Frog listed in 1207 in England (pleas before the king or justices in Shropshire), a William Le Frogge listed in 1275 also in England (Subsidy Rolls in Worchestershire), William Frogge listed in 1332 (Subsidy Rolls in Dorset), Edmund Frogs in 1642 (Parish Register in Devonshire).
My line changed the spelling from Frogge because they were tired of being called Froggy. Your line may have attempted to do something similar. It would be easier to see if there is a connection to the rest of us if you could share more information about your family--grandparent's names and geographical locations would be a good place to start.
