An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Colerick is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in either of two settlements in Devon. The first was called Coleridge, and was in Egg Buckland, while the second was named Coleridge House, and was found in the Stokenham area. Thus, the surname Colerick belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Colerick Early Origins



The surname Colerick 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.

The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Colerick has been spelled many different ways, including Coleridge, Colridge, Coldridge and others.
