The name Coleridge belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having 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 Coleridge belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Coleridge Early Origins



The surname Coleridge 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.

Coleridge Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Coleridge include Coleridge, Colridge, Coldridge and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Coleridge were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: John Colridge who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1798.
