Barrodale is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in Cumberland, where they derived their name from the village of Borrowdale, in the parish of Crosthwaite, often called often called Grange in Borrowdale. The village dates back to at least c. 1170 when it was listed as Borgordale and meant "valley of the fort river" derived from the Old Scandinavian word "berg" + "by." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Barrodale Early Origins



The surname Barrodale was first found in Cumberland, but there is another Borrowdale located in the old County of Westmorland that is often called Westmorland Borrowdale to distinguish the difference of the two locations. This latter reference is of lesser importance historically to the surname.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Barrodale or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
