The surname Courridge was sometimes derived from the Old English word corage, which in turn comes from the Old French words corage and curage, which mean stout. The surname Courridge is also sometimes derived from residence in or near the settlement of Cowridge End in Luton, in the county of Bedfordshire.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Courridge were among those contributors: James Corish, who settled in New York in 1792; John Corish, who arrived in New York in 1841; Elizabeth Corish, who settled in Quebec in 1847; Hilaire Courage, who settled in America in 1847.
