Burdeck History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Burdeck is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Burdeck family lived in Leicestershire. This surname, however, is a reference to the family's former district of residence, "Bordet," Normandy, where they held a family seat as Lords of Cuilly. One of the earliest record of the name was of William Burdett, who held lands in Potton, Bedfordshire in 1214. Nicolas Burdett held by service of half a knight's fee in 1284.
Early Origins of the Burdeck family
The surname Burdeck was first found in Leicestershire where the family can be traced to "Hugo de Burdet, who came into England with WIlliam I, and was lord of the manor of Loseby in 1066."  Arrow in Warwickshire was for a long time the family seat of the Burdetts but was passed to the the Conways in the reign of Henry VI which resulted in many lawsuits which remained unsettled until the end of the reign of Henry VIII.

Burdeck Spelling Variations
Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Burdett, Bordet, Bourdet, Burdet, Burdit, Burditt and others.
