Daddow History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The name Daddow is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Daddow was a name used for a male, where it was originally used as a pet form of Andrew.  Essentially the surname Daddow originally derived from the Old Scottish name Andrew.
Early Origins of the Daddow family
The surname Daddow was first found in Surrey in the parish of Leigh, where the Dendy family held estates and made sizable donations to the local church.  The first record of the family was Dandi (without surname) who was listed in Lincolnshire in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1271-1273. The same rolls list Richard Dande in Huntingdonshire. Later the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed Willelmus Dandy, et uxor ejus and the Lay Subsidy Rolls of Lancashire listed Thomas Dandisone in 1332.  Adam Dandy was listed in the Register of Freeman of Yorkshire in 1312. 
The name may also be from Dand, Dandy, familiarly used in Scotland for Andrew. Comparing the Scottish records to the English ones, we can see that the Scottish ones were more recent and in many cases the name appears as a forename, not a surname. "Andrew Kerr, son of the eighth lord of Ferniehurst, who died in 1499, was generally known as 'Dand Kerr.' Dand was common as a Christian name in the south of Scotland in the sixteenth century, and in the list of tenants under the Abbey of Kelso in 1567 we find Dand Howy, Dand Glernet, Dand Lermont, Dand Craige, Dand Stobe, etc."
