The name is a result of the original family having lived in the township of Chidlow, which was in the parish of Malpas in Cheshire. The surname Chuddeleigh belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The surname Chuddeleigh was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
