The name Doidge has a rich and ancient history. It is an Anglo-Saxon name that was originally derived from the baptismal name Dod, the short form of Roger. Baptismal names began to appear as surnames relatively late in the growth of the naming tradition. This is a little surprising, given the popularity of biblical figures in the Christian countries of Europe. Nevertheless, surnames derived from baptismal names grew in popularity during the Middle Ages, and have become one of the foremost sources for surnames.

Doidge Early Origins



The surname Doidge was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very early times.
