Where did the Spanish Corder family come from? What is the Spanish Corder family crest and coat of arms? When did the Corder family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Corder family history?The long and noble heritage behind the name of Corder first began in medieval Spain. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Spain, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Corder family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Corder was an occupational name for a shepherd. Further research showed the name was derived from the Spanish word Cordero, which means lamb.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Cordero, Cordeiro, Cordera, Cordeira and others.
First found in Asturias, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
