The surname Cody was first found in the counties of Cornwall and Devon where they settled soon after the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D. In Norman, the family name was Archidiacne, which seriously questions the popular concept that the family name is derived from the office of Archdeacon.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Archdeacon, Archdekin, Archdekyne, Arcedeckne, Archdecon, Archdicken, Ercadkne, Erchdeacon, Erchdekine, Archdeakin, Erdeacon, Cody, Codie and many more.
