Among the earliest people to bear the Deatherage name were the Deatherage family, who lived in the town of Ath in Belgium. There it would have been rendered D'Ath, or De Ath, meaning "from Ath." It was also occasionally an occupational
name for a gatherer or seller of kindling. In this case, the name is derived from the Old English word "dethe," which in turn is derived from the Old English word "dyth," which means "fuel" or "tinder." Occupational
names frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic
The surname Deatherage was first found in Kent
where they held a family seat
from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Deathridge, Deatheridge, Deatherage, Deatheredge and many more.
