Doddmyn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Doddmyn is a name that dates far back into the mists of early British history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes. It is derived from the short form of Rodger or Roger.

Early Origins of the Doddmyn family

The surname Doddmyn was first found in Kent where they held a family seat from very early times. The name dates back to the Exon Domesday where a class of men were called Dodomanni, later to be known as Dodeman and Deudman. [1] Dudman was an ancient personal name implying quality or some employment. Goduin filius Dudeman was the first on record of the family having been listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 in Kent. About ten years later, Goduine Dudumani was listed ay Bury in Suffolk c. 1095 and later Dudeman was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Cornwall in 1206. Thomas, Walter and John Dudeman were all listed in London in 1199 and Gilbert Dodeman was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire in 1275. [2] The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list the following: Henry Dodeman in Wiltshire; William Dodeman in Huntingdonshire; and Peter Dodeman in Kent. [3]

Migration of the Doddmyn family

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Doddmyn or a variant listed above: John Dodman who settled in Virginia in 1637; Henry Dudman settled in Virginia in 1635; Phillip Dudeman who settled in Philadelphia in the year 1733.
