Dednum Early Origins



The surname Dednum was first found in northeast Essex at Dedham, a village within the borough of Colchester that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Delham. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

By 1166, the place name had evolved to the current Dedham spelling. The place name literally means "homestead or village of a man called Dydda," from the Old English personal name + "ham." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The clothing-trade flourished here as early as the reign of Richard II. Of particular note was the group of early dissenters that left Dedham to found the township of Dedham in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1635. They were led by John Rogers, a preacher banned from his work in England. The settlement flourished and is now a suburb of the city of Boston.
